What's Closing on Broadway


Recently, Broadway has announced quite a few closures of shows. We decided to put together a list of shows that are closing within the next couple of months on Broadway, if you're going over be sure to book tickets soon! Some of these you won't want to miss. 

Kiss Me, Kate 



In Cole Porter’s sparkling 1948 musical, the warring lovers of The Taming of the Shrew are causing trouble both onstage and off. While putting on a musical version of Shakespeare’s play, exes Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi can’t decide if they’re enraged, enamoured or enormously confused whenever they cross paths out of character. Throw in some mistaken identity, a pair of surprisingly eloquent gangsters and a whole lot of romantic entanglements, and what you get is Kiss Me, Kate - a dazzling classic that earned the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical.

Kiss Me, Kate finishes its Broadway run at Studio 54 today, June 30th.

All My Sons 


In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations.

All My Sons closes today, June 30th, at the American Airlines Theatre. 

The Ferryman 


Following unanimous, five-star critical acclaim and a thrice-extended, year-long run in London, Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman has arrived on Broadway. Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney farmhouse is a hive of activity with preparations for the annual harvest. A day of hard work on the land and a traditional night of feasting and celebrations lie ahead. But this year they will be interrupted by a visitor.

The Ferryman will close on the 7th July at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. 


My Fair Lady 


Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?

My Fair Lady will close at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on the 7th July


Ink 


It’s 1969 London. The brash young Rupert Murdoch purchases a struggling paper, The Sun, and sets out to make it a must-read smash which will destroy – and ultimately horrify – the competition. He brings on rogue editor Larry Lamb who in turn recruits an unlikely team of underdog reporters. Together, they will go to any lengths for success and the race for the most ink is on! Inspired by real events and a recent hit in London’s West End, In its London run, The Guardian called it “riveting,” and Time Out hailed it as “an incredibly brilliant stunner.”

Ink will finish its Broadway run at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on the 7th July


Burn This 


When a mysterious death brings together two unlikely strangers, their explosive connection sparks a chemistry too fiery to ignore. Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), and co-starring Tony nominees David Furr and Brandon Uranowitz, Burn This is a smouldering story of love and raw attraction by one of the most vital playwrights of the modern era.

Burn this will conclude its Broadway run on the 14th July at the Hudson Theatre. 


The Prom 


Everyone’s invited to The Prom, the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine calls “smart and big-hearted” and The New York Times declares a Critic’s Pick! It’s a new musical comedy about big Broadway stars, a small town, and a love that unites them all.

The Prom will close at the Longacre Theatre on the 14th July


Be More Chill 


It's about your a typical love triangle – between a guy, a girl, and the supercomputer inside the guy's head that tells him what to do. The guy is desperate to fit in. The girl’s dream is to stand out. And the supercomputer just wants to take over the world! The New Yorker raves, “If you fed Dear Evan Hansento the Little Shop of Horrors plant, you would get Be More Chill.” With a Tony Award-nominated score bursting with additively catchy earworms, Be More Chill is the mind-bendingly fun hit about the competing voices in all of our heads.

Be More Chill will finish its run at the Lyceum Theatre on the 11th August


The Cher Show 


Cher’s remarkably true story is brought to life in this new musical with a book by Rick Elice (Tony Award®–winning Best Musical Jersey Boys), direction by Jason Moore (Tony Award–winning Best Musical Avenue Q), choreography by Tony Award–winner Christopher Gattelli (Newsies), and orchestrations, arrangements and musical supervision by Tony Award–winner Daryl Waters (Memphis).


The Cher Show will conclude its Broadway run at the Neil Simon Theatre on the 18th August



King Kong 



Ann Darrow, a fearless young actress with a will of steel and dreams that reach as high as the just-completed Empire State Building. Ann finds her big break in the form of Carl Denham, a fast-talking filmmaker who promises to make her the star of his next big adventure movie. Throwing caution to the winds, she joins Carl on a voyage to the mysterious Skull Island. There, they encounter a wonder more astonishing than they could have possibly imagined: a 20-foot-tall, 2,000-pound ape known only as Kong. To her surprise, Ann finds an unexpected kindred spirit in this magnificent, untameable creature. But when Carl hatches a plan to capture Kong and display him to the New York masses, she’s faced with a terrible choice.

King Kong will finish its Broadway run on the 18th August at the Broadway Theatre. 


Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune 


These two monumental actors join forces in a play that is as raw as it is romantic, as visceral as it is vibrant, and as funny as it is breathtaking. When a diner waitress and a short order cook meet for a night of fiery passion, they expect a return to loneliness. But as desire turns into the possibility of love, they realise that true connection means being unafraid to reach for the moon.

Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune will conclude its run at the Broadhurst Theatre on the 25th August


What the Constitution Means to Me
