Have often been able to do 3 show days by squeezing a 5pm in between 2pm & 8pm shows on a Saturday. Some good, some terrible. Have looked thru off-Broadway listings and didn't see ANY current shows (going mid-Oct) with 5pm starts. Am I missing anything?

I don’t think so. I’d love a 5 pm show. That way I can get two shows in on a Saturday instead of having to spend more money on trains over multiple weekends.

You might be able to make it happen if you are willing to do late night off-Broadway immersive show like Sleep No More or Then She Fell after an evening show then late middle of night train home. That would work best with matinee, 8:00 p.m. Broadway Saturday show then midnight Sleep No More. I think Then She Fell stops taking entries at 1030.

London does an occasional 5 p.m. show and I wish we did so here. A Sunday would be perfect. especially good for theatre tourists.

If you could do Sunday, you could do a matinee then Aladdin (or The Lion King) at 630 then Then She Fell at 1030. I did this almost theee years ago. Be warned though that Then She Fell is in Brooklyn.

The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking playing at the New World Stages has a 5 p.m. Saturday show. It's a history of drinking told with a comedic flair. I did it a few Saturdays ago and it was a lot of fun. You also get 3 free drinks which makes for a nice middle show on a 3 show day. You're out by 6:45.

Then She Fell would have been perfect for a late night show... pretty much sold out the weekend we're there (Sunday is completely sold out, and the late show on Fri only seems to have a single premium ticket left.)

Gonna look into Imbible further. Thx!

I use it as a running joke when I bring friends into town who think two shows in a day is a lot, so I always offer to add Naked Boys Singing in between...

Went with The Imbible... not too excited about it, but I know some friends who liked it and whose opinion I (usually) trust.

Rags Parkland, a new musical at Ars Nova (birthplace of Great Comet, KPOP, etc) is superb and I'm so disappointed I didn't see this thread sooner. They have 5pm Saturday shows.

Me again. 

Trying to add some extra shows to the six we already have booked for Thurs to Sun. Any Sat 5pm or late Fri/Sat shows these days? Any later (10pm?) shows aside from Sleep No More and Then She Fell? Enjoyed them both... OR perhaps a 5 or 6pm Saturday show? (That isn't Naked Boys Singing or Imbible; saw 'em) Have looked through the listings and not found anything yet. Thx! 

Seeing Betrayal on Thurs, Scotland PA on Fri, Oklahoma on Sat mat., either Slave Play or Sound Inside on Sat eve (bailing on our Lightning Thief tix; gonna Stubhub one of those), Moulin Rouge on Sun mat., and Jagged Little Pill on Sun eve. Have seen most other shows playing at traditional times.

Thanks! Looking into Utopia now. Any Sat 5pm or late Fri/Sat shows these days?

Used to live in Chicago and took way too many family members/out of town guests to Blue Man Group. Haha Great suggestion otherwise tho! Thanks.
