The Blue Man Group, Cats, & More are Coming to Cedar Rapids
Broadway at the Paramount is back!
Late yesterday morning, the Paramount Theatre in Downtown Cedar Rapids made a big announcement. They revealed the 2021-2022 schedule for Broadway at the Paramount, which is a lineup of shows headed to the theatre over the course of the next year. Five new shows have been added to the calendar, including a couple of Broadway classics and one of the most popular performance groups across the country.
First up on the schedule is the musical Cats. The award-winning musical will make its stop at the Paramount on October 4th and 5th of 2021. A month later, another favorite will hit the stage: Fiddler on the Roof. The 1964 classic will be here November 22nd at 7:30 p.m.
Moving into next year, The British Invasion will invade Cedar Rapids on March 13th of 2022. The Paramount's website reads:
"Featuring an all-live band with huge projection period photos along with original film footage, the show will focus on British music that dominated the charts and the airwaves with bands such as Manfred Mann, The Searchers, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Zombies, Freddie & The Dreamers, and Herman’s Hermits along with dozens more."
And then comes my favorite of the bunch... the Blue Man Group! The legendary crew of blue men will bring their show filled with comedy, music, custom-made instruments, and audience interaction to the Paramount on April 26th of 2022. I saw a performance on a high school choir trip in Orlando back in the day, and it was ridiculously entertaining.
The final performance on the schedule is actually a rescheduled one. Riverdance was supposed to take place in April of 2020, but it was postponed to May of this year because of the pandemic. It was then postponed again, so now it's set for June 9th of 2022.
Tickets are not on sale for any of the Broadway at the Paramount shows yet, but you can get the latest information from the Paramount's website HERE.
