Broadway Keeps the Lights on with Alternate Holiday Schedule

The holidays are a perfect time to see a show. Broadway performs every day of the week at multiple curtain times to accommodate every schedule, including holidays. During Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks, some shows are changing their performance schedules.

"During the most wonderful time of the year, theatregoers can rely on Broadway to help them celebrate by fitting a show into their holiday plans," says Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League. "With special matinees and evening performances, Broadway provides many additional opportunities to see a production. From comedies to dramas, old favorites and new, there are so many choices that there's something for everyone throughout the Thanksgiving and holiday weeks."

During Thanksgiving week, some shows will play on Thanksgiving Day, and many will play Friday matinees. Fourteen shows will be playing on Christmas! During Christmas week, alternate curtain times will also include Friday matinees and evening performances.

Check Broadway.org to see the holiday performance schedules and easily find out where and when shows are playing:
