7 Celebrities You Can See on Broadway this Season

Keira Knightley makes her Broadway debut in Thérèse Raquin. Catch other celebrities take over the Great White Way with ShowTickets.com!

There is a long and often noteworthy tradition of film and TV stars plying their trade in plays and musicals on Broadway and Off-Broadway, sometimes adding an extra dash of Hollywood dazzle to the theatre world.

The new Broadway season has no shortage of bold-faced, Hollywood names appearing on theatre stages up and down Broadway, actors primarily known for their work with film and TV. Ah, but the allure of live performance is a strong one; the thrill of performing in front of a live audience is something tough to find in the stop-start production style of shooting a TV show, or filming a movie.

If your next visit to NYC includes a Broadway show, then for sure visit TicketsatWork.com for amazing ticket deals to many of the finest shows of the new season – featuring a who’s who of ‘Hollywood’ folks who have been drawn back to the stage by the siren song of Broadway.
