Broadway Shows still playing on Broadway (and those that are not).


Local One Pickets


The Strike action by Broadway's unionised stage hands (members of Local one - part of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees), has closed all but nine of Broadway's shows.

These are the shows still playing their normal schedule.

  • Cymbeline at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre
  • Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas at St James Theatre
    Note: Jujamcyn Theaters, owners of St James Theatre, go to court on 27 Nov 2007 in order to try and prevent further performances of 'The Grinch.'
  • Mary Poppins at the New Amsterdam Theatre
  • Pygmalion at the American Airlines Theatre
  • The Ritz at Studio 54
  • The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Circle in the Square
  • Xanadu at the Helen Hayes Theatre
  • Young Frankenstein at the Hilton Theatre

If a show is not included in this list, it means the theatre the show plays at is dark, and there will be no performances until the strike ends.

The shows closed because of the strike are:

  • August: Osage County at the Imperial Theatre
