8 Broadway Shows We’re Booking Early

While Variety critic Steven Oxman once deemed The Minutes “nearly certain to be the single work of art that best represents, but will also survive, the Trump era,” the play, Letts told Vulture in 2020, ultimately takes a much wider view, considering “how we conduct our politics, and why we do it, especially in America.”

Take Me Out: previews begin March 9, opens on April 4

In 2002, when Take Me Out arrived at The Public Theater, the play starred Daniel Sunjata as Darren Lemming, a mixed-race professional baseball player who comes out to the public as gay. (Difficult conversations with his teammates—some receptive, some rancorous—ensue, most taking place in the locker room.)

“When [Richard] Greenberg first wrote the play, he intended it to presage an event that he had long anticipated as both a gay man himself and as a fanatical fan of the sport,” the Times’s Kurt Soller has written. (The piece would win Greenberg the 2003 Tony for best play when it moved to the Walter Kerr.) “Some two decades later, that still hasn’t happened, which makes “Take Me Out” less of a period piece than might be presumed — and thus, more urgent now than when it was conceived.” In its revival, which will be at the Helen Hayes, Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) is Lemming, while Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) plays Mason Marzac, Lemming’s investment counselor. Scott Ellis (Tootsie, Kiss Me, Kate) directs.

Funny Girl: previews begin March 26, opens April 24

In its first-ever Broadway revival, Funny Girl will star Booksmart and American Crime Story: Impeachment’s Beanie Feldstein as Fanny Brice, a brassy Ziegfeld girl who begins a turbulent romance with the gambler Nicky Arnstein in early 20th-century New York. Reclaiming a role made famous by Barbra Streisand in 1964 (and then again in 1968, when she starred in the Oscar-winning movie adaptation), Feldstein has called the casting her “lifelong dream come true”: “The first time I played Fanny Brice was at my third birthday party, in a head-to-toe leopard print outfit my mom made for me,” she recalled in a statement. (Ramin Karimloo and Jane Lynch will co-star as Nicky and Mrs. Brice, respectively.) Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) directs, with Harvey Fierstein revising Isobel Lennart’s original book.
