Broadway Holiday Schedule

Broadway is operating on adjusted Holiday Schedules. No show is playing an evening performance on Christmas Eve, and many will be dark for the matinee on December 24th as well.  On Christmas Day, which is a Thursday, some shows are playing evening performances, but no show is playing a matinee on the 25th. To make up for the dark performances over the Christmas holiday, many shows are playing two performances on Friday, December 26th.  Then, many shows play two shows on Saturday, December 27th and/or Sunday, December 28th.

The evening shows on December 25th include Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at 8pm, Chicago at 8pm, Cinderella at 7pm, Disgraced at 7pm, The Elephant Man at 8pm, Honeymoon in Vegas at 7pm, Jersey Boys at 7pm, Kinky Boots at 7pm, Les Miserables at 7pm, Mamma Mia! at 8pm, Matilda at 8pm, Motown: the Musical at 7:30pm, On the Town at 8pm, Phantom of the Opera at 8pm, Pippin at 8pm, Rock of Ages at 8pm, Side Show at 7pm, and Wicked at 8pm.

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.

Thanksgiving Week Features Many Broadway Schedule Changes

Due to the fact that ticket buying patterns tend to change significantly over holidays, most Broadway shows are altering their schedules accordingly this week.  The biggest changes are on Thursday, November 22, Thanksgiving Day itself, when the majority of Broadway shows are canceling performances entirely.  Notable exceptions are Chicago, A Christmas Story, and The Phantom of the Opera, which are still planning to hold shows that day.

Almost as significant are the changes made to Broadway show schedules on Friday, November 23.  To make up for the lost Thanksgiving Day performances, and to account for the fact that many families are looking for entertainment on that Friday, most Broadway musicals and plays have added matinee performances in addition to their usual Friday evening performances.

There are a few other scattered performance additions and cancellations from now through Sunday.  To see the complete Broadway performance schedule for this week, visit the Broadway League’s schedule page here.
