Following the recent news that all Broadway performances are suspended to May 30, 2021 at the earliest, Lincoln Center Theater has confirmed that their upcoming productions will now reopen in fall 2021. Previously billed to open in spring 2021, both Intimate Apparel and Flying Over Sunset will now commence performances in the second half of 2021, with dates to be announced.

In addition to the two shows mentioned above, Lincoln Center Theater will produce other productions at the venue, set to be performed from spring 2022.

Based on Lynn Nottage’s play of the same name, the opera adaptation of Intimate Apparel follows Esther as she finds herself in a relationship with a suitor on the Panama Canal. Intimate Apparel ’s creative team includes a book by Lynn Nottage, music by Ricky Ian Gordon and direction by Bartlett Sher.

Carmen Cusack, Harry Hadden-Paton and Tony Yazbeck will star in Flying Over Sunset, inspired by the LSD-infused lives of Aldous Huxley, Clare Boothe Luce and Cary Grant. The world premiere musical includes a book and direction by James Lapine, music by Tom Kitt, lyrics by Michael Korie, and choreography by Michelle Dorrance.
