Broadway Schedule Changes for Thanksgiving Week

The Phantom of the OperaMajor holidays usually mean significant changes to the Broadway schedule, and that includes Thanksgiving. With families in town and visitors coming to NYC for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, it is good to know what changes to expect in the event that you want to catch a Broadway show during this holiday time.

The main change is that almost all Broadway shows have canceled their performances on Thanksgiving Thursday. The five shows that will be open that evening (all for 8pm performances) are Beautiful, Chicago, The Phantom of the Opera, Pippin, and The Winslow Boy.

To make up for the Thanksgiving closures, most Broadway musicals and plays are adding a matinee performance for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. 700 Sundays, Mamma Mia, Phantom, Pippin, Richard III, The Snow Geese, Twelfth Night, Waiting for Godot, and The Winslow Boy are the only exceptions.
