Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

One of the city’s oldest theaters (it dates from 1835), the National has a history as a Broadway tryout house—productions have included the flamingly awful jukebox musical Hot Feet, which went on to an ignoble 97 New York performances in 2006. But in recent decades it has been home mostly to touring fluff—when it doesn’t sit empty, that is. A new Broadway-bound musical If/Then runs from November 2013.
