“We are immensely excited about our unique lottery initiative for My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?),” said Producers Tom Smedes and Heather Shields.

“This groundbreaking approach is more than just a ticketing strategy; it’s a reflection of our commitment to making theater accessible and fostering a diverse audience. By launching the lottery months before our first preview, we are breaking the traditional mold of Broadway lotteries, which are often available only a few days or hours before show time, and opening up opportunities for theater lovers outside the NYC metro area to plan their visit and experience Broadway at an affordable price. It’s a win-win – a chance for audiences to secure tickets well in advance at a great price and for us, as producers, to welcome a wide and enthusiastic audience right from the start of our journey.”

My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is a hilarious, poignant, and infectiously joyous one-person play featuring West End artist Rob Madge (they/them). The show follows the journey of a family as they explore their son’s love for all things Disney, theatre, and their identity as a Queer human. As much a hilarious ode to musical theatre and VHS tapes as it is the power of a family’s acceptance, the production beautifully weaves together themes of love and self-discovery with a pop-culture love-in for fairy tale fanboy/girls (and everyone in between).

The play will begin performances on February 27, 2024, with opening night slated for March 12 at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th St.).

Additionally, the show recently announced that Meena Harris and Phenomenal Media, JJ Maley, and George Strus have joined the show’s producing team. Maley and Strus’ non-profit organizations, Queer Arts Coalition and Breaking the Binary Theatre respectively, will be leading the production’s training and community engagement efforts.

Tickets for My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) start at $48 (inclusive of all fees) and can be purchased now at or by phone at 212-239-6200.
