Kinky Boots (Best Musical, 2013) Save over 25%!
Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits his father’s shoe factory. Looking to save the family business, Charlie turns to a fabulously fashionable new friend — cabaret star Lola — who gives him an outrageous idea that could change both of their destinies. Playing at the Al Hirschfield Theatre
The Book of Mormon (Best Musical, 2012)
Composed by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon is an old-style musical with a modern sensibility. This blockbuster show features several big song-and-dance numbers accompanied by some old-fashioned Broadway belting. An equal opportunity offender, the show playfully pokes fun at religion, sexuality, poverty and race, while inspiring an after-the-show discussion of religion in general. Playing at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre
Avenue Q (Best Musical, 2004)
Like a special episode of Sesame Street for adults, Avenue Q is the humorous and warm story of a college grad named Princeton that comes to New York City with big dreams and little money. He can only afford to live in a shabby apartment on Avenue Q — but his neighbors turn out to be a quirky and funny group of characters. Playing at the New World Stages
Jersey Boys (Best Musical, 2006)
Jersey Boys chronicles the creation, rise, fall and coming-apart of a 1960s rock ‘n’ roll quartet, The Four Seasons — accompanied by their Golden Oldies hit parade — in which each member of the band recounts his own section (or season). Recently adapted into a Clint Eastwood-directed film, the popular musical combines comedy, drama, dancing and live music with a superb cast. Playing at the August Wilson Theatre
The Lion King (Best Musical, 1998)
Surely you’ve seen the popular movie, so here is a chance to see where it all began — the unforgettable music and the exhilarating choreography of this musical theater phenomenon—one of the most awe-inspiring productions ever brought to life on stage, is a treat for musical-lovers of all ages. Hakuna Matata! Playing at the Minskoff Theatre
Phantom of the Opera (Best Musical, 1988)
Here it is – Broadway’s longest running musical. For over 25 years, Phantom of the Opera has been the Broadway musical all others are measured against. Far beneath the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerizing score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night. Playing at the Majestic Theatre
Les Miserables (Best Musical, 1987)
Considered in some circles as ‘the greatest musical of all time’, Les Miz is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, an unforgettable story of heartbreak, passion, and the resilience of the human spirit, that has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. Featuring the timeless score and beloved songs “I Dreamed A Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” and “One Day More.” Playing at the Imperial Theatre
Fiddler on the Roof (Best Musical, 1965)
Starring Tony nominees Danny Burstein and Jessica Hecht, Fiddler on the Roof is the heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and life, love and laughter. This classic musical is rich with Broadway hits, including “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” and features stunning movement and dance from acclaimed Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter based on the original staging by Jerome Robbins.
