Broadway Shows You Can't Miss This Holiday Season

First Posted: 12/02/10 07:43 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:15 PM ET

With the holiday season securely upon us, it is basically a universal truth that throngs of visitors will enter New York City for a glamorous white Christmas, undoubtedly geared up for the city's greatest attractions, not least of which is Broadway. And if ever there were a time to support the ladies and gents whose names go up in lights each night, it is now. As of yesterday, 24 Broadway shows are slated to close between now and the end of January with only 2 set to open in their place. It is true that January is the time when Broadway shows tend to end their runs, but not this many and not all at once.
Check out our slideshow of the shows you really should see before they're dark.

BLOODY, BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON
Slated to close: January 2, 2011

A musical starring Benjamin Walker as Andrew Jackson - yes, the former US President. This Jackson is a bad ass proudly laying the smack down on the British, American Indians, and the Spanish in the name of US freedom.

An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as our seventh Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question, is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?

From Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson
