London Hit ‘My Son’s A Queer’ Cancels Imminent Broadway Run; Producers Aim For Next Season

My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?), playwright/performer Rob Madge's acclaimed West End play, has canceled its imminent Broadway run.

The one-person production was intended to begin a 16-week run with previews at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre starting on February 27, and an opening night having been slated for March 12. Last month, producers announced that the production would offer a digital lottery program making inexpensive tickets accessible to people who have to travel to New York to attend. The news comes as Broadway, preparing for the extremely jam-packed spring season, is reeling from another, very different last-minute shocker: On Tuesday, the Roundabout Theatre Company announced that Tyne Daly, the star of its much-anticipated revival of John Patrick’s Shanley’s Doubt: A Parable, had suffered a medical emergency and withdrew from the production, already in previews.
