New York Theater Rumours

Want to be one of the first people to hear the latest gossip about new Broadway shows? The SeatPlan team keeps an enthusiastic ear out for theater news, and above is just a taste of confirmed Broadway openings over the next 12 months. But there are a huge number of musicals and plays that haven’t yet found a home in New York that you should know about too.

Audience favorites like Moulin Rouge and Back to the Future prove that movies and TV series can become some of the most entertaining new Broadway musicals around. Luckily, there are more in the pipeline: Thelma & Louise, The Queen’s Gambit and La La Land are all in development.

West End transfers have become a major success; SIX and & Juliet are just two examples. There’s more to add to your wishlist with London’s longest-running play, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, primed for a Broadway premiere that’s 70 years in the making! Other shows coming to Broadway via London include Rob Madge’s My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?), which has already played an acclaimed Off-Broadway season.
