Producers Add Thursday Matinees on Broadway

Thursday, 03 Apr 2014 12:47 PM

Catching a Wednesday matinee on Broadway is so last year. The hot thing now is Thursday afternoon shows.

Three shows making the move are "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella," ''Mamma Mia!" and "The Phantom of the Opera." ''Matilda the Musical" may experiment with the idea later this summer.

The step is the latest to scramble the traditional eight-show Broadway week that has seen the addition of shows on normally-dark Monday, earlier curtains on Tuesday night, the scrapping of two shows on Sunday and even nine-performance weeks during holidays.

The West End in London has long had Thursday matinees.
