The groundbreaking musical “How to Dance in Ohio” is set to make its international debut in the United Kingdom in 2025. 

Following a successful yet brief run on Broadway earlier this season, the production’s U.K. premiere was announced during the Broadway reunion concert on May 20. The specific venue for the U.K. run has yet to be disclosed.

Adapted from Alexandra Shiva’s 2015 HBO documentary, “How to Dance in Ohio” delves into the lives of autistic young adults at a counseling center in Ohio. The narrative, guided by the support of clinical psychologist Dr. Emilio Amigo, captures the group as they prepare for a spring formal dance. 

The Broadway production, which opened at the Belasco Theatre on December 10, 2023, after previews began on November 15, was a milestone for neurodivergent representation. The show featured seven openly autistic actors portraying the seven autistic characters, embodying the show’s mantra: “nothing about us without us.”
