Stephen Adly Guirgis' Pulitzer Prize-winning play Between Riverside and Crazy will receive its Broadway premiere this fall.

Bob Fosse's Dancin'

Bob Fosse's Dancin' was last seen on Broadway in 1978, when it won the Best Choreography Tony Award (naturally) and was nominated for Best Musical. If you can't get enough of the iconic moves from the choreographer behind Chicago and Cabaret, keep an eye out for Bob Fosse's Dancin' in March. The "musical" is really a dance revue — no plot or singing, just a series of dance routines in various different styles to an equally diverse range of music. This revival had a pre-Broadway run in California directed by Wayne Cilento, who was in the original Dancin' Broadway cast and preserves Fosse's original choreography.

Performances begin: March 2
Opening night: March 19
Venue: Music Box Theatre

Check back for information on Dancin' tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Shucked

Plus, the creative team includes Tony winners Jack O'Brien (director) and Robert Horn (book), and Grammy winners Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally (composers/lyricists).

Venue: Nederlander Theatre

Venue: Golden Theatre

Check back for information on Prima Facie tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

The Thanksgiving Play

Second Stage Theater will present Larissa FastHorse's The Thanksgiving Play in spring 2023, with exact dates to be announced.

With this show, which premiered to acclaim off Broadway in 2019, FastHorse becomes the first female Native American playwright in Broadway history.

Performances begin: TBD
Opening night: TBD
Venue: Hayes Theater

Check back for information on The Thanksgiving Play tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

High Noon

The 1952 Oscar-winning Western film High Noon will get a Broadway adaptation in 2023. It will be the first Western on Broadway in 85 years. The plot of High Noon centers on Marshal Will Kane, whose duty to his town is put to the test when a murderer and his gang are rumored to arrive. He's tasked with either facing them alone or fleeing with his wife to safety, and both options prove contentious. Rather than skipping between moments in time, the events of High Noon on Broadway take place in real time within two hours, just like the film.
