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 week, some shows will play on Thanksgiving Day, and many shows are adding special Friday matinees.


During Christmas week, in addition to some Christmas Eve and Christmas Day performances, alternate curtain times include Thursday and Friday matinees and Sunday evening performances. Check schedule to see when specific shows are playing.

“ ’Tis the season to see a show! Despite schedule changes that come with the holidays, alternate curtain times – including Thursday and Friday matinees – provide a variety of opportunities throughout the festive holiday weeks,” says Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League. “Broadway in New York is the place to be during the holiday season! You can visit BROADWAY.ORG to see the changing schedules and easily find out where and when your show is playing.”
