Every Friday we will be sharing John and Stephen Hauge’s TheaterThoughts from their popular site TrueTheatergoer.
“From John Hauge: “My brother Stephen and I created the TrueTheatergoer.com website in October 2011 to promote theater in Washington, DC and on Broadway by providing an enriching collection of information on current shows and composite audience reviews and ratings of these shows. Our hope is to further develop a community excited about theater and willing to write short comments of shows so others can benefit from their experiences.”

This Week’s TheaterThoughts
The Fall Season
Before looking at the Fall Season, let’s look quickly at the shows that Broadway theaters carried over into the 2013-14 season. There were 27, nine plays and 18 musicals. Ten of these shows have now closed, leaving 17 open — all musicals! (Two of these — Annie and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark — are slated to close the first week of 2014.)
The Fall Season has seen 21 openings — 12 plays and nine musicals (including four non-book “concerts” — Let It Be, Forever Tango, Il Divoand After Midnight).
Of these six have closed, and six others — First Date, Romeo and Juliet, The Snow Geese, Big Fish, Betrayal and 700 Sundays — are scheduled to close by the first week in January. (Macbeth will close the following week.)
In fact none of the current plays on Broadway will be open after March 2, 2014. Only the three remaining musicals have open runs.
1) Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is in previews and will open Januarhy 12t.
2) Machinal begins previews on December 20 and will open January 16th.
