3. Groundhog DayThe August Wilson Theatre plays host to Groundhog Day, the new musical comedy based on the much-loved film. This is a tale of living life to the fullest, one day at a time – and is now nominated for an impressive seven Tony Awards!

The show revolves around Phil Connors, a disgruntled big-city weatherman mysteriously stuck in small-town America reliving the same day over and over and over again – with no consequences, no regrets, no tomorrows, and no hangovers. But once he starts getting to know associate TV producer Rita Hanson, he discovers it’s a day of second, third and fourth chances.

You’ve seen the movie (probably more than once!) Now save on tickets and see the stage version of Groundhog Day!

4. School of RockBased on the hit movie, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping mind-blowing rock band.

Playing at the Winter Garden Theatre, School of Rock is lots of fun, a high-energy show that features 14 new songs from Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie.

Right now you can save over 30% for tickets to see School of Rock!

5. War PaintHow about this for a superb night at the theater: Save over 25% to see two-time Tony Award-winning legends Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole join forces as trailblazing cosmetic icons who built empires in a business world ruled by men.

Set to open this week at the Nederlander Theatre, War Paint is a new musical that tells the remarkable story of cosmetics titans Helena Rubinstein (LuPone) and Elizabeth Arden (Ebersole), who defined beauty standards for the first half of the 20th century. From Fifth Avenue society to the halls of Congress, their intense rivalry was ruthless, relentless and legendary – pushing both women to build international empires in a world dominated by men.
