Rob Madge’s My Son’s A Queer Will Not Open on Broadway This Spring

It was announced today that Ron Madge’s My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) has canceled its Broadway plans for this spring and has been postponed. It was slated to begin performances on February 27, 2024, at the Lyceum Theatre.

The producers announced that the production will open on Broadway next season instead with a theatre and dates to be announced at a later date.

The Broadway run had been announced last fall after critically acclaimed runs in London’s West End and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This hilarious, poignant, and infectiously joyous one-person play follows the journey of a family as they explore their son’s love for all things Disney, theatre, and their identity as a Queer human. As much a hilarious ode to musical theatre and VHS tapes as it is the power of a family’s acceptance, the production beautifully weaves together themes of love and self-discovery with a pop-culture love-in for fairy tale fanboy/girls (and everyone in between).

Rob Madge (they/them) is a theatre maker, writer and actor who began working professionally in theatre at the age of 9, having spent the majority of their childhood forcing their family to help them put on shows in the living room. Select theater credits include Mary Poppins (Prince Edward Theatre), Macbeth (Gielgud Theatre), Oliver! (Theatre Royal, Drury Lane), and Les Misérables (25th Anniversary International Tour and Concert).
