Hard to believe but the year is almost over. Yes I know we've still got four weeks until the end of 2013 buy trust me my friends. It will be 2014 before we know it. Scary right? Now when I look back at the season so far I have to say it has been a lot better than last year a this time. In fact at this time last year three new shows had already closed with more set to close the following month. Now we all know that's nothing new. In fact next in the next few weeks five shows including Spider-Man:Turn Off The Dark and Annie are scheduled to close. Like I said nothing new. The good news is that the rest of the season looks pretty good.
Now of all the shows set to open the two that I am looking forward to the most are both based on movies. Yes I know I have written many blogs over the years about my distaste for Broadway musicals based on movies. Doesn't mean I don't want to see these them. Who knows? They might actually be good. Another show that I am looking forward to is Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Emmy Award winner and Tony host Neil Patrick Harris. This production which will mark it's Broadway debut is one of this season's most highly anticipated shows. Plus between now and the end of April there are a total of eighteen shows set to open. Now if that doesn't get you excited then I don't know what will. Here is a list of those shows.
All The Way
The Bridges of Madison County
Bullets Over Broadway
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Mothers and Sons
Of Mice and Men
A Raisin in the Sun
Which one's will fail and which one's will succeed? We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
