Our Favorite Broadway Shows Closing Soon
Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when three of your favorite Broadway productions decide to call it quits within the span of a year. But even though we’re living in denial (is running around our apartment performing one-woman versions of “One Day More” considered denial?), it should probably be addressed that Matilda the Musical, Les Misérables, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time have all announced closing dates for 2016/2017.
Whether you know and love them, or have been putting off the schlep to Midtown to see them, the time to secure tickets to these legendary plays is now! Read on for more deets.
Matilda the Musical
Based on the beloved children’s novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical has taken Broadway by storm since its arrival in 2013. Now, after a wildly successful run earned the play five Tony Awards including Best Book of a Musical, the cast will hang up their collective hats on January 1, 2017, at the Shubert Theatre.

The powerful musical Les Misérables has announced it will close on Broadway for the second time. The French Revolution-centric production originally ran from 1987 to 2003, and has called NYC’s Imperial Theatre home since 2014. Despite critical acclaim and overall positive box office numbers, September 4, 2016, will be your last chance to see the play performed in the Big Apple. For now… Click here to view tickets.
Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
In less than two years of its current Broadway stint, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has won a Drama Desk Award, Critics Circle Award, and a Tony Award for Best Play. Adapted from the Mark Haddon novel of the same name, the story follows protagonist Christopher Boone as he investigates the death of a neighbor’s dog. With such a small, successful run under its belt, the final performance will take place on September 4, 2016. Click here to view tickets.
