Where Broadway's Newest Shows Got Their Start

Developing and producing Broadway musicals is very expensive and time-consuming, which is why it's very rare for musicals to open directly on Broadway. Most shows have an out-of-town tryout and/or are developed by (or in association with) a non-profit/subscription based theatre company.

This is a roundup of where musicals (and plays) opening on Broadway in 2024 were developed, including:

  • Days of Wine and Roses (off-Broadway, Atlantic Theater Company)
  • The Notebook (Chicago Shakespeare Theater)
  • Water for Elephants (Atlanta, PigPen Theatre)
  • The Who's Tommy (Chicago, Goodman Theatre)
  • The Outsiders (San Diego, La Jolla Playhouse)
  • Lempicka (Williamstown Theatre Festival, then La Jolla Playhouse)
  • The Wiz (US tour)
  • Suffs (off-Broadway, Public Theater)
  • Hell's Kitchen (off-Broadway, Public Theater)
  • Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club (London)
  • The Heart of Rock & Roll (San Diego, The Old Globe)
  • The Great Gatsby (New Jersey, Paper Mill Playhouse)
