Operation Mincemeat eyes Broadway run

Hit West End musical Operation Mincemeat has confirmed that it is considering a Broadway run for the show.

Winner of Best New Musical at the 2024 Olivier Awards, producers of the show sent out an email survey today, 8 May 2024, canvassing American fans about a possible Broadway transfer.

The unusually open and honest email said that: “The Broadway industry is split” on whether the show would work Stateside. “Some people, including significant investors and producers, say the show is “too British”, and some that Broadway has become too expensive. (London cost £2mil vs Broadway $13.5m) Our supporters, including many American press and public, don’t agree – and think the show will go gang-busters.”

American audiences for the show have increased from 2% to 11% over the last year, suggesting that news of the hit musical is reaching US shores.

Producers also aid that: “We really want to bring the show to Broadway. But we need the American ticket-buying public to tell us – is the show “too British” or can we join the ranks of Six, Les Mis, and Oliver… to name a few that have successfully crossed the pond?”

Operation Mincemeat continues to perform well in the West End, and has recently announced new cast joining the West End company at the Fortune Theatre.
