When “Hamilton” arrived in Indianapolis in December 2019, it was one of the last big entertainment events before the pandemic set in. Next season, almost four years later, the musical will return.
Broadway in Indianapolis will bring it back for a two-week run in the spring of 2023 after big crowds and patron requests for its return, according to the company. It will be inside a six-show season that will begin in October with “Anastasia” — which is one of three Circle City premieres that include Disney’s “Aladdin” and “Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of the Temptations.”

The Indianapolis premiere is coming our way after being canceled in 2020. From the Russian Empire to 1920s Paris, a woman digs into her past as she fights a Soviet officer who doesn’t want her to know with the help of a conman and ex- aristocrat. The show uses music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and the book by Terrence McNally.
Nov. 15-20 at Clowes Memorial Hall
Street-wise Aladdin finds Princess Jasmine, some wishes and the Genie — a combination potent enough to fight the evil plans against him. Comedy, magic and dramatic flair come together with glittering scenery and costumes in the classic story. It includes songs from the film and new music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and book writer Chad Beguelin.
Feb. 21-26, 2023, at Old National Center
Tracy Turnblad, her memorable hairstyle and her wild group of friends invite audiences back to 1960s Baltimore with dreams to dance and change the world. “Welcome to the 60’s,” “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat” are among the tunes that provide fodder for choreography by Jerry Mitchell.
March 14-19, 2023, at Clowes Memorial Hall
The story of Jean Valjean’s fight to begin a new life and to get redemption after enduring searing punishment is still one of the most popular musicals in the history of the genre. Its classic songs — including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “Master of the House” — remain at the emotional core of this production by Alain Boublil and Claude -Michel Schoenberg.
April 26-May 7, 2023, at Old National Center
Anchored by the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop and R&B score has sent the musical into a stratosphere of popularity of its own. It has broken new ground by casting actors of color in most major roles to highlight America’s diversity, immigrants’ challenges and what’s behind the American dream.
‘Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of The Temptations’
June 6-11, 2023, at Clowes Memorial Hall
The quintet’s story from Detroit to more than a dozen No. 1 hits unfolds to their beloved tunes, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” Included in the musical of the ensemble’s rise written by Dominique Morisseau are personal conflicts, betrayal, loyalty and the nation’s civil unrest.
