Broadway Closures: The Music Man, A Strange Loop and more!

January is the month of many Broadway closures, find out more here

The Music Man, A Strange Loop, Death of a Salesman, Topdog/Underdog, The Old Man & The Pool and Ohio State Murders all took their final Broadway bow earlier this week. We wonder what will be taking their place - new Broadway perhaps?

January has really gotten off to a flying start, we're halfway through the month and we've already said goodbye to more Broadway shows than we can count on both hands. As if saying goodbye to Beetlejuice earlier this month wasn't hard enough, we're now bidding farewell to more hit Broadway productions. 


The starry revival which saw Tony winners Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster leading the way completed their run at the Winter Garden Theatre on January 15. The production which saw itself atop the weekly Broadway grossing charts throughout its run officially opened February 10, 2022. The production played a whopping 46 previews and 373 performances, receiving dazzling critics reviews including Deadline saying "Warren Carlyle's energetic, song-and-dance choreography blends vaudeville panache, ballet and pre-Depression dance craze, hitting all the right spots at all the right angles." In the words of The Music Man, Goodnight My Someone. 


2022's Tony Award Winning 'Best Musical', A Strange Loop also finished its run at the Lyceum Theatre on January 15. The musical which called itself 'the big, black, and queer-ass Great American Musical for all' officially opened April 26 and played 13 previews and 293 performances. Newcome Jaquel Spivey lead the cast as Usher, but this won't be the last we see of Spivey as he's set to star as Damian in the Mean Girls musical screen adaptation! 


Is January 15 the new Friday 13? The Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, which saw Wendell Pierce and Sharon D Clarke shine on stage as Willy and Linda Loman, took its final curtain call on... drum roll please... January 15. The West End transfer began previews September 17 and opened on October 9, though the production doesn't feel like its been on for long Death of a Salesman will always be a Broadway staple. 


Suzan-Lori Park's Topdog/Underdog 20th Anniversary revival production official opening October 20, 2022 and ran until January 15 (are we seeing a trend?). Topdog/Underdog saw actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II make his Broadway debut alongside Corey Hawkins, and followed a story of sibling rivalry. The production received two nods at the 2022 Tony nominations. 


Mike Birbiglia brought his latest solo show to Broadway's Vivian Beaumont Theater on November 13, 2022. Birbiglia's show which explore death and mortality ran for a limited engagement and closed, you guessed it, January 15. 


Ohio State Murders, an Adrienne Kennedy production, took its final bow at the James Earl Jones Theater on January 15. The production starred six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald and saw playwright and Obie winner, 91-year's young Kennedy make her long-awaited Broadway debut. Ohio State Murders began previews November 11, 2022 and official opened December 8, 2022. The production was scheduled to play through February, but recently announced an early closure. The production played 29 previews and 44 performances. 

It's always a somber feeling when Broadway bids farewell to a production, but it also adds a little excitement and wonder into what's coming next. Will we see a brand new Broadway production taking the helm? Maybe a new Hamilton is on the horizon and we just don't know it yet! Or will we see some classics returning to the stage. Either way, we'll keep you posted.
