Broadway to end 12 shows in a few days

Nearly a dozen Broadway shows will close over the coming days, including plays with marquee names and some memorable musicals, reports CBS.

Four musicals, according to the report, will take their final bows Sunday.

“It’s showtime” one last time for Beetlejuice. The musical first opened in 2019 at the Winter Garden Theatre. It was shut down along with the rest of Broadway when the pandemic hit and relaunched at the Marquis Theatre in April of 2022.

The beloved Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods, which was originally scheduled for an eight-week Broadway run starring Sara Bareilles as the Baker’s Wife, was extended several times. 

Other shows closing Sunday include the new musical Almost Famous, based on the 2000 film of the same name, and a revival of the musical 1776.

Next Sunday, January 15, brings another round of closures with five shows playing their final performances.

This is the final week for the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A Strange Loop. The story of a Broadway usher named Usher who’s writing a musical about a Broadway usher won two Tony Awards in 2022, including Best Musical.

There’s also Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman with Wendell Pierce and Sharon D Clarke starring as Willy and Linda Loman.

Topdog/Underdog, The Music Man, and Ohio State Murders complete the list.
