Coming Soon! Columbians on Broadway

New shows and current shows featuring Columbia Alumni, Faculty, and Students

Summer is teeming with activity as Broadway prepares its fall season. This fall, we can anticipate a bevy of new Broadway shows with Columbia alumni, faculty, and students at the helm. We follow up from our previous blog on Columbians on Broadway and podcast on The Low Down with what's coming to Broadway this fall.

Throughout the year, CAA Arts Access brings exclusive opportunities to see Broadway shows produced and directed by Columbia alumni such as The King and I, Fiddler on the Roof, The Color Purple, Anastasia, and many more. Stay tuned as we plan our next Broadway outing and talkback with our talented Columbians on Broadway!
