No other Broadway show on Monday nights? Not even Chicago?

there's actually about 6-7 shows that typically play Mondays.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Not that a seasoned pro would be interested, but I know Wicked has a Monday performance coming up on July 7th. I believe it has a couple Monday night performances after that.

Yes a number of shows have a Monday performance to make up for being off on July 4th.

And yes, Wicked seems to be off for the summer on Sunday's so there are many Mon performances.

Thanks for that link. Now I'm curious whether I should see The Drowsy Chaperone, The Color Purple, or Frost/Nixon next Monday.... decisions, decisions.

Unless you meant this one:

BTW, the OP didn't mention the Monday re: the July 4 week.

Ok.. So I am trying to decide if I should see Here Lies Love or go to Sleep No More again. Those are the only two I see as options for a Monday night. Really don't know anything about Here Lies Love. But after it was mentioned here I looked it up and it looks like it might be fun. Is it ever on tkts ? I have seen Sleep No More a few times before and I had made the decision that enough is enough. But being that it is my only other Monday night option I am now thinking about it. BTW; with the exception of SLM I am not really one of those people that makes a habit of seeing things more than once.... But Norm Lewis is now in Phantom... but I hate Phantom.... But Norm Lewis is hot. Oh decisions, decisons.

It's not a huge space for Here Lies Love, and when I went a month or so ago, many shows were selling out. So, I can't say for sure, but I don't think it shows up on TKTS. Do things at the Public ever end up there?

When I went, I ended up like five feet away from David Byrne who was dancing along with the audience, which seems to be a pretty regular occurrence.

You can always go to Holler If Ya Hear Me. No one wants to see that more than once.
