A trio of blockbuster musicals – ‘Hamilton,” “Lion King,” and Wicked” – will be among the first shows to resume performances in September.

The three will restart performances on September 14, the first day Broadway is allowed to reopen, as will the 1996 revival of “Chicago,” which holds the record as the longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

The news was announced Tuesday by cast members on the ABC program “Good Morning America.”

The musical “Six,” about the six wives of King Henry VIII, which had been scheduled to open March 12, the night Broadway shut down, will open on September 17.

The producers of “Phantom of the Opera,” the longest running show on Broadway, were the first to announce reopening plans, saying last week that the musical would resume performances on October 22.

“Come From Away” will resume performances on September 21, “Aladdin” on the 28th, “Ain’t Too Proud” on October 16, and “Jagged Little Pill” on October 21.

Some shows may reopen even later.  “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” may not reopen until 2022 and then not in its current, two-part format.
