My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?) will no longer open on Broadway this season. The show, originally scheduled for a 17-week run at the Lyceum Theatre beginning February 27, now plans to open in the 2024-25 Broadway season.

Rob Madge, a veteran theatre performer in London's West End, wrote and performs this solo show, which already had multiple acclaimed runs in the U.K. My Son's a Queer sees Madge recreate a Disney parade they tried to stage in their living room as a kid.

With original songs (by Madge and Pippa Cleary), elaborate costumes, home video, and more, Madge also celebrates how their family's support and acceptance helped them grow into their queer identity.

A theatre and dates for the future run of My Son's a Queer have yet to be announced.
