To celebrate the completion of the Dr. Phillips Center in 2020, the arts center will present our biggest, most celebrated season yet—beginning with the FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando 2020 – 2021 season expanding to 14 weeks—and Tony Award®–winning musicals Hamilton and Wicked returning as season add-ons. The full FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando season will be announced on Thursday, February 20, 2020.

2020 will be a transformative year in other ways, too—ushering in a new era for the performing arts in Orlando as we open the entire Dr. Phillips Center. Steinmetz Hall will debut in September and the Green Room soon after, joining the Walt Disney Theater and the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, and fulfilling the original vision for Dr. Phillips Center. Orlando will become a top destination for the world’s most revered and relevant international artists.
Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
Flying back to the arts center, Elphaba and Glinda return in Wicked, which tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good has made Wicked one of the world’s most popular musicals.
Wicked has been seen by nearly 60 million people worldwide through international and national tours.
