Winter can be rough on Broadway box office, with tourism at low ebb and folks more likely to stay indoors streaming Netflix or hunkering down with Game of Thrones. That’s why January is the perfect time to get off your butt and see a show before it’s gone. Nearly ten shows are closing shop next month (plus a couple more in February). Some of them are long-runners calling it quits (Tony winner A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) but the majority are limited runs. And with Broadway Week in NYC selling two-for-one tickets starting January 7, you can even it a date or present for that special friend or family member.
Below are the shows in order of final performance. An asterisk (*) next to a title indicates a critic's pick.
Dames at Sea
Hand to God *
Thérèse Raquin *
The Gin Game
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder *
