Broadway Shows News - November 2007


The Strike Is Over And All Shows Are Running Now!

Apparently not much considering that most of Broadway has been in the dark since the tenth of November due to a stage hand strike. Many productions have been forced to cancel until some kind of agreement can be made. Hopefully this can happen in the very near future.

If you are planning on coming to New York for the busy holiday season there are still a few shows that can be enjoyed including the ever popular Radio City Music Halls Christmas Spectacular. There is time to purchase tickets for this holiday classic but don’t wait! The show runs until December 30, 2007 so come and see why this sensational production has returned to NYC for the past 75 seasons! Make this part of your holiday tradition … it is absolutely spectacular! Another holiday classic is also making children’s (and some adults) days a bit brighter … the beloved story of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas has resumed performances after a New York Supreme Court judge granted the show’s producers an injunction. The show plays an ambitious fifteen performances a week and is set to close on January 6, 2008 so there are still plenty of opportunities to experience this amazing tale.

In addition to the Christmas Spectacular and the Grinch there are a few other shows that have not been shut down by the strike. If you would like to take in a family show Mary Poppins is a wonderful choice for that the whole clan can enjoy. The other productions still playing are:

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
The Ritz
Young Frankenstein

Also it is worth mentioning that all off-Broadway productions are still open so if that is something that you wouldn’t normally do maybe now is the time to check that out. As you can see between shopping, dining and sightseeing there is still plenty to do in terms of New York entertainment.

Please note that while all performances of the effected strike have been cancelled indefinitely the strike could end at anytime. If you are a ticket holder for a specific performance don’t assume that your show will not be playing on that date. Check the shows website or contact the box office for updated information.

Here is hoping for a quick and fair resolution for all parties involved so that all of Broadway can get back to business! Happy Holidays!
