Broadway Christmas Week Schedule 2014. Holiday Shows

RadioCityChristmasSpectacular-ETS-Santas01-1

All but three of the 35 Broadway shows currently playing are offering Monday night performances on Christmas week, and many have scheduled matinees on the Friday after Christmas Day. (Scroll to the bottom for the complete schedule)

Of course, a show on Christmas is not necessarily the same thing as a Christmas show, of which there are plenty — and not all of them are happening on Christmas itself:  Several have already ended their runs this year. One, the 16th annual reading of Times Square Angel written by and starring Charles Busch at Theater for the New City, is happening tonight (Monday, December 15th.)

Below are a selection of holiday shows that vary in tone and intended audience; some are raunchy parodies of holiday shows not suitable for children.
