Broadway Weekly Schedule 01/03 – 01/09:Canceled!

The first week (01/03 – 01/09) of the New Year on Broadway is marked by several shows canceled due to the spreading of COVID’s Omicron variant, and this has taken its toll on the weekly schedule. Here’s the Broadway weekly schedule for 03/01 – 09/01!

CANCELED!

So far, only three shows have canceled dates this week. Come From Away has canceled dates for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The Music Man has canceled two dates for Tuesday and Wednesday, while Skeleton Crew has their whole week off.

Broadway Weekly Schedule 01/03 – 01/09

Tuesday

Besides the closed shows, everything else is going as planned. The Phantom, Evan Hansen, American Utopia, and To Kill a Mockingbird have the night off as planned. Everyone else is on line for the night, staging performances from 7 and 8 PM.

Wednesday

Six and Chicago have the night off. Everyone else, besides a handful of shows, will stage matinees. That of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will start at 1 PM, the rest will follow the familiar schedule of starting at 2 PM.

Thursday

No Dark shows for January 6th! Also, the Music Man will return with an evening performance. All other shows will perform, and The Phantom of the Opera will even stage a matinee, starting at 1 PM!

Friday

The majority of the shows on Friday evening will start at 8 PM, except for a few expectations. Come From Away will also make its return on stage. Only Skeleton Crew will remain closed on Broadway and will remain as such at least until the end of the week.

Saturday

All active shows will stage both a matinee and an evening performance. The earliest – that of The Cursed Child, will start at 1 PM, while the rest will start between 2 PM and 2:30 PM. Evening shows will be as usual.

Sunday

MJ will have the night off after the long week. Aladdin, The Book of Mormon, Chicago, David Byrne’s American Utopia, Dear Evan Hansen, The Lion King, Six, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Wicked will even stage some matinees.

The Music Man

The Music Man’s absence is a huge blow on Broadway. The show has massive mainstream appeal largely because of its main protagonist – Harold Hill, played by superstar Hugh Jackman. A popular fact of Wolverine’s biography is that his career in the US starts on Broadway.

There is trouble in River City when con artist Harold Hill arrives in town. There’s only one problem with his plans—he falls in love with the straight-laced librarian, Marian. Featuring songs such as “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Trouble,” “‘Til There Was You,” “Pickalittle” and “Gary, Indiana.”

The Music Man features book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson, and is based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey. If you love classic movies, then check its screen version from 1962.

In conclusion

The Broadway weekly schedule for the first week of the year (01/03 – 01/09) sees a few closed shows. We keep our fingers crossed that everyone will remain healthy and theaters will remain open!
