SCHENECTADY (April 11) – Proctors Collaborative is happy to announce the next shows coming to Proctors in Schenectady for the 2022-2023 KeyBank Broadway Series. Due to complications due to COVID-19, the annual Proctors Collaborative announcement was held over two days starting with the Proctors announcement on the Proctors Facebook page on Monday, April 11. Each hour hosts John Gray and Lydia Kulbida from NEWS10 ABC were joined by Proctors CEO Philip Morris to announce a different show coming to Proctors this upcoming season. 

Starting the announcement was Disney’s Aladdin which will tech at Proctors and kicks off their newly imagined North American tour from Schenectady.  

Then, Proctors is excited to bring a Broadway classic to our stage with Hairspray, which will be available as a crossover show to Capital Repertory Theatre subscribers. 

Next on the calendar, a Broadway phenomenon, Proctors is bringing back the Tony Best Musical winner Hamilton. Joining them this season are Tootsie and Jagged Little Pill, which very recently closed its Broadway run due to COVID-19.  

Closing out the season, Proctors can’t wait to welcome back Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations. Ain’t Too Proud had previously ‘teched’ at Proctors in November 2021, though they didn’t announce at the time when they would be returning. 

“Probably the biggest sign that the Proctors Collaborative is back is our ability to announce a new season! Imagine, a Disney tech is returning with AladdinHamilton returns, and as many Tony awarded shows will be here as ever before. Yes, Proctors, UPH and theRep are back,” says Proctors Collaborative CEO Philip Morris.

You Can’t Stop the Beat! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon is back on tour! Join 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960’s Baltimore as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show. Can a girl with big dreams (and even bigger hair) change the world? 

Featuring the beloved score of hit songs including “Welcome to the 60’s,” “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” HAIRSPRAY is “fresh, winning, and deliriously tuneful!” (The New York Times).

Hamilton 

Mar. 14-19, 2023 

This “theatrical landmark has transformed theater and the way we think about history” (The New York Times) 

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. 

Tootsie 

Apr. 11-16, 2023 

Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it TOOTSIE! This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “TOOTSIE is it!” 

Jagged Little Pill

Joy, love, heartache, strength, wisdom, catharsis, LIFE—everything we’ve been waiting to see in a Broadway show— is here in the exhilarating, fearless new musical based on Alanis Morissette’s world-changing music. 

Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin, upcoming 1776) with a Tony-winning book by Diablo Cody (Juno) and Grammy-winning score, this electrifying production about a perfectly imperfect American family “vaults the audience to its collective feet” (The Guardian). “Redemptive, rousing and real, JAGGED LITTLE PILL stands alongside the original musicals that have sustained the best hopes of Broadway.” (The New York Times) 

You live, you learn, you remember what it’s like to feel truly human… at JAGGED LITTLE PILL.

Set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” Ain’t Too Proud tells the unforgettable story of the legendary quintet that Billboard Magazine named the greatest R&B group of all time.
