This is the perfect puzzle for avid Broadway goers and Playbill collectors. If you’re finding it a bit painful that you can’t grow your Playbill collection this year, this might just help fill that Broadway hole in your heart for the time being. <3

2. Broadway: The Musicals – 1000-Piece Puzzle

If you’re looking for a puzzle that just screams MUSICALS, this is your best bet. It’s jam-packed with classic musicals, and is best enjoyed when puzzling to your favorite showtunes.

3. Times Square 1000-Piece Puzzle by Dowdle

Although this puzzle may be a bit hard to relate to at the moment with such a big and happy mask-free crowd, I just love the modern and vibrant feel to it! Plus, you can see the marquees of Jersey Boys, Wicked, and The Lion King (although it actually says “The Lying King” for some reason) in the background!

4. Show Time in Times Square – 1000-Piece Puzzle

If you’d rather go for a more Broadway-heavy view of Times Square, then you might enjoy this puzzle even more than the one above! There are way more Broadway marquees visible in this one, making it the focus of the puzzle!

5. London Illustrated 1000-Piece Puzzle

Of course, if we’re going to share Broadway puzzles, it wouldn’t be fair to leave London off of the list. Theatre plays a small role in this puzzle, but it’s up there in the top right corner!

6. Edward Gorey’s 1000-Piece Artpiece Puzzle

This is one of the more interesting puzzles on the list, as it’s more of a creative and whimsical celebration of theatre in general. The style is classy as well, making for an enjoyable puzzling experience.

I really like that this puzzle is a bit more classic in its vibe. There’s also lots of detail everywhere, which should make it a fun one to put together!

8. Paws & Claws 300-Piece Theatre Puzzle

All of the other puzzles on the list are more for grown-ups, but this one is an adorable 300-piece theatre jigsaw puzzle for the younger puzzlers out there (ages 10+). By the way, check out the sweet musical names on the animals’ shirts!
