    Black to the Future and The Cherry Orchard begin performances next week, but for a few days we’ll have only one play on Broadway. And so many plays that open now are limited runs because they’re a star vehicle or part of a subscription season, or both. It’s just sad to see that the open-run straight play seems to have been priced out of the market and big hit open runs like Curious Incident are few and far between.

    To be fair, its always like this in terms of plays during this part of the season. Very few straight plays find themselves in long open runs, that’s just how the current market is. The fall is always the time where a slew of plays open, but its pretty common for late summer to have 0-2 plays running. Dont worry, by November there will be too many to keep track of.
