After spearheading a $3M renovation of Austin’s largest theater, Executive & Artistic Director Bob Bursey announces his first curated season of music, dance, theater and performance for Texas Performing Arts. Ten productions will mark our 40th anniversary season in 2021-2022. The performance lineup includes established and emerging artists, revivals and new works, long-time favorites and first-time visits. Audiences will enjoy some of the highest examples of artistic excellence, join artists as they engage with the past and possibilities of the future, experience interdisciplinary collaborations and be the first to see new productions.
“The ambitious productions in Texas Performing Arts’ 40th season move Austin onto the national stage for creative new work. These visionary artists provide insight and inspiration for rebuilding from the COVID-19 pandemic and unlocking the potential of Texas Performing Arts’ next 40 years.”
— Bob Bursey
