Upcoming theater plays

I looked on various websites to see what upcoming plays (not musicals) will be presented in May 2019. I see that a lot of plays end between January and March 2019. Is there a website that shows what comes after. For example, Network at the Shubert ends in March, I am guessing they will have a production afterwards but it does not show up on their website. When do you believe this information will be available.

Often theaters are dark for weeks to months between plays.

If you are interested in plays, not musicals, you really need to pay attention to the Off Broadway world which is has much, much richer offerings of straight plays than Broadway. Off Broadway theaters are largely non-proft and smaller and more intimate than Broadway - and cheaper. There is simply no comparison between them.

But most Off Broadway comes and goes in the space of 4-8 weeks and tickets only go on sale to the general public (versus members) 4-8 weeks ahead of time. So what I'm saying is that in March/April you should check back. There are many Off Broadway theaters, here are some of the best and just take a look at what's playing now to see what i mean about how rich their offerings are. There are more, these are the ones I can think of off hand

I read somewhere that ordinary people can sometimes get into play readings, any idea how to get to attend one of these?

<<ordinary people can sometimes get into play readings>>

I'm a member of a few theater companies (i.e., I give them money) and sometimes they do readings and announce it to members. It's not the reading that the actors do where they sit around a table and do the first reading with the director to figure out how they're going to do the play

Here's an example of what I'm talking about by one of my favorite Off Broadway theaters, the York. They only do musicals, btw
