About My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) on Broadway

My Son's a Queer has been postponed to the 2024-25 Broadway season. New dates and a venue have not been announced.

No force is more powerful than love or acceptance — or a theatre kid's determination to put on fully staged plays in their living room. Perhaps that's why My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?), a new solo show with all these themes, is such a life-affirming event that's taking the world by storm. Get My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?) tickets on TodayTix.

In this heartfelt and hilarious (not to mention award-winning) production, non-binary theatre actor Rob Madge reaches back into their childhood and recalls — complete with home videos on VHS — the Disney- and theatre-obsessed kid who roped their family into performing with them at home.

Madge's storytelling and songs by Pippa Cleary (The Great British Bake-Off Musical) chronicle a family's journey to explore, understand, and ultimately accept Madge's true self — including their identity as a queer person.

This critically acclaimed show is on Broadway for 16 weeks only. Join the celebration — get tickets to My Son’s a Queer on Broadway.

More information about My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) on Broadway

Before the premiere of My Son's a Queer in New York, Madge made a splash with the show across the U.K. They premiered it at the Turbine Theatre in London in 2021, took it to Scotland's Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022, and returned to London later that year for a West End run, which got an encore in 2023. To top it all off, My Son's a Queer earned an Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play and a WhatsOnStage Award win for Best Off-West End Production.

The show isn't quite a play, though, and not quite a musical. (It, fittingly, exists outside the binary!) My Son's a Queer is a totally unique, multimedia show with stories, songs, videos, and more. But most importantly, under the lively direction of Luke Sheppard (& Juliet), all the elements make one exuberant, entertaining whole. Of course Madge, who hilariously critiqued his family members when their living-room artistry wasn't up to their standards, would deliver nothing less.

What to watch for

  • My Son's a Queer made history in London as, reportedly, the first West End show with the word "queer" in its title.
  • Madge doesn't just talk about their childhood — they bring it on stage. Alongside the actual home videos, multiple items Madge owned as a kid appear on stage — like wooden props from the kid-sized stage their grandparents built for them.
  • Madge's grandmother also made all the Disney princess costumes they wore for their living-room performances. For Broadway, though, that job fell to costume and set designer Ryan Dawson Laight.
  • Multiple songs in My Son's a Queer are inspired by famous Disney power ballads.
  • Madge made their Disney dreams come true! They made their professional stage debut at age 9 in Disney's Mary Poppins in London's West End.
  • The show's title riffs on another musical Madge performed in: Les Misérables. The corrupt Monsieur Thernadier says, in the song "Beggars at the Feast," "Here comes a prince, there goes a Jew, this one's a queer, but what can you do?"
