Broadway closings aren't the most exciting part of New York theatre — no one likes to see a show they love go away. But it's good to stay updated on Broadway shows closing so you don't miss a musical or play on your must-see list. To make that easier, we've listed all the Broadway shows playing now and when their closing dates are, whether this year or next year. This article also includes a list of all the shows with no closing date set yet, so you know which ones you still have plenty of time to see.

Some shows come to Broadway for a strictly limited time and set their closing dates right away, so you can know from the start when to buy your tickets. Others start with open-ended runs but eventually close, and this article will be updated with the latest information as Broadway shows announce closings. The good news about Broadway show closings, though, is that there are always new Broadway shows opening, too. A great musical or play might eventually leave New York, but your next favorite show could be taking its place. Plus, there's always a chance for a Broadway revival down the line!
