December 1, 2022
It’s December, the time for giving and the time for openings! That’s right, six Broadway shows will open this season, rounding up an incredible 2022 season with 22 new shows and 12 more that are planned; making a total of 32 new contenders for the Tony race in June.
Ain’t No Mo’ (Belasco Theatre)
Direct from a smash-hit run at The Public Theater, AIN’T NO MO’ dares to ask the incendiary question, “What if the U.S. government offered Black Americans one-way plane tickets to Africa?” The answer is the high-octane new comedy from the mischievous mind of playwright Jordan E. Cooper.
December 4 – A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical • Broadhurst Theatre
The story of the legendary Neil Diamond comes to life on stage in an uplifting new musical featuring all his hit songs including “Sweet Caroline,” “America,” and “Cracklin’ Rosie.”
December 8 – Ohio State Murders • James Earl Jones Theatre
Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald—“the undisputed queen of live theater” (Variety)—leads the cast of the riveting and surprising Ohio State Murders. Directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Soldier’s Play), McDonald plays a famous writer who returns to her alma mater to finally reveal the truth of what happened when she was a student there.
Some Like It Hot (Shubert Theatre)
SOME LIKE IT HOT brings one of Hollywood’s greatest comedies to new life on the Broadway stage. Don’t miss your chance to join this fast-paced, sassy, brassy cross-country romp, as two best friends run for their lives – and find true love where they least expect it.
Between Riverside and Crazy (Hayes Theater)
City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won’t leave him alone. For ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington (Stephen McKinley Henderson) and his recently paroled son Junior (Common), the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum in this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the old days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.
The Collaboration (Samuel J. Friedman Theatre)
Warhol. Basquiat. Electric, eccentric, polar opposites… together, for the first time in the most unlikely partnership the art world has ever seen. Paul Bettany (The Avengers, “WandaVision,” “A Very British Scandal”) and Jeremy Pope (Choir Boy, Ain’t Too Proud, The Inspection) star in the thrilling American premiere of the London sensation.
