High-floor apartment at 35 Hudson Yards High-floor apartment at 35 Hudson Yards
Even as Broadway starts to reopen, theater lovers have a surfeit of alternate viewing options. An Emmy-nominated performance of Hamilton can be streamed on Disney+; a performance of Come From Away hit Apple+ TV on September 10; Diana will premiere on Netflix on October 1, two months before its planned December 1 Broadway reopening; and a film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen will hit movie theaters on September 24, months before the musical that inspires it re-opens on December 11.
However, there is no substitute for the energy of a live performance and the audience enjoying it. Hadestown and Waitress welcomed audiences back on September 2, and Waitress broke the single-performance sales record at the Ethel Barrymore theater. Crowd-pleasers Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King, and Chicago reopened on September 14, and other shows will follow suit in the coming weeks and months.

“Without Broadway, New York would never come back economically” - Senator Charles Schumer

It is important to note that Broadway is not simply a pleasant diversion for locals and tourists alike. According to a PBS Newshour report in February 2021, Broadway is responsible for nearly 100,000 jobs in New York City and has an economic impact of nearly $15 billion. Moreover, a fall 2019 report released by the New York City Comptroller’s office observes that the shows generate employment for administrators, costume designers, sound technicians, and others whose names do not appear on the marquees. The effects also ripple out to hotels, restaurants, parking garages, and other local services that accommodate theatergoers.
In honor of the reopening and the Tony Awards set to air on September 26, we take a look at the shows that were generating the most excitement when Broadway went dark. Tourists typically come from all over the world to see shows like these, but residents of these new developments live close enough to walk to the theaters. In addition to the central location, they enjoy eye-catching architecture, top-of-the-line interiors, and well-thought amenities.

Six the Musical Image via SIX on Broadway
New York City shut down a few hours before SIX was about to officially open on Broadway in March 2020, but the musical has not been forgotten in the months of lockdown. Across the pond, the contemporary pop take on the six wives of Henry VIII was one of the first to reopen on the West End, much to the delight of audiences.

The Broadway adaptation of Moulin Rouge! is up for 14 Tony Awards, which includes male lead Aaron Tveit as the sole nominee in his category.

Mrs. Doubtfire musical Image via Mrs. Doubtfire Broadway
The musical adaptation of Mrs. Doubtfire was only three previews in when Broadway went dark last spring, putting the production on hold and leading the younger stars to fear aging out of their roles. But that is not to say the cast and crew sat idly at home. The creative team took advantage of the time to scrap three numbers in favor of a new opening, and the writers aged up the child characters to keep the actors portraying them in the show.

Company revival Image via Company Musical
The revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Company was in previews before the pandemic, but already attracting attention from audiences and critics alike for the decision to change the main character’s gender, as well as Patti Lupone’s return to Broadway. The virtual “Take Me to the World” concert, performed in honor of Mr. Sondheim’s 90th birthday in spring 2020, offered tantalizing hints in the form of performances by current cast members and songs from the musical.

Mr. Jackman got his start in musical theater in a school production of The Music Man, and is as eager as his audiences for the show to begin this winter - more than a year later than originally planned!

Plaza Suite Matthew Broderick Sarah Jessica Parker Image via Plaza Suite on Broadway
The first Broadway revival of Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite” was another production upended by the pandemic, and audiences had been looking forward to seeing Broadway power couple Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker playing three different pairs in this series of three one-act plays. This is not their first time working together on Broadway, but it may be their most anticipated: The show played a sold-out run in Boston in February 2020.
