“My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?),” written and performed by Rob Madge, will no longer open on Broadway in spring 2024. The solo play originally scheduled to open on March 12 at the Lyceum Theatre, is now expected to open in the 2024-2025 season. 

The announcement was made 19 days before the Olivier Award-nominated play was expected to begin previews on Feb. 27. The Luke Sheppard-helmed production was set for a limited run through June 16.

Ticket holders can contact their point of purchase for a refund.

Additional details regarding the production’s timeline and theater will be announced at a later date.

In “My Son’s a Queer,” Madge reflects on their upbringing through the old home videos of their living room performances. Madge reveals their childhood penchant for the camera, love of Disney and what it meant to have the support of family as they discovered their queer identity.

“My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?)” is being produced by Tom Smedes, Heather Shields and Peter Stern, by arrangement with Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills.
