Who knew there was more to the story than a yellow brick road and a twister?! Wicked brings you the story of how the “wicked witch of the west” became green, and that is just the beginning of this smash broadway hit. Playing now at the Gershwin Theater, Wicked has been a crowd favorite ever since its first week on Broadway back in 2003.
Can you feel the love tonight? Um, yes! The Lion King is one of the most spectacular showcases of music, dance and art. Adapted from the Disney classic, this stage show is right up there with a Cric du Soleil show. The Lion King is currently playing at The Minskoff Theater.
HELLOOOOOOOO! While The Book of Mormon might have been created by an unlikely team (The two writers of South Park, yes..THE South Park) it does not lack in entertainment or music, and is just as hilarious as anything you will see this year. Following two Mormon boys on their mission, this show will be a Browadway experience of a lifetime. The Book of Mormon is now playing at the Eugene O’Neil Theater.
The longest running show on Broadway is still one of the best. With more Tony’s than…well, more than a most other Broadway tunes, The Phantom of the Opera is a rock opera that is worth the price of admission times ten. The Phantom of the Opera is currently playing at the Majestic Theater.
One of Broadways newest is Motown the Musical. A Jersey Boys type of show chronicles Berry Gordy and the rise of Hitsville USA. Watch all your favorite Motown players come to life with this Broadway hit, currently playing at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre.
