The Top Broadway Shows in New York Right Now
Come From Away
Come From Away tells the amazing true story of the remote community of Gander, Newfoundland. On September 11, 2001, 38 flights were redirected to this small Canadian town.
The rest of the musical explores the interactions between travelers and the local community, from culture clashes to language barriers. Ultimately though, Come From Away is a tale of a small community that embraced and inspired the world during a difficult time. Click here to receive tickets for this show at the Schoenfield Theatre.
The Lifespan of a Fact
One of the best, new Broadway shows to hit the scene is The Lifespan of a Fact, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones and Bobby Cannavale.
Based on John D’Agata’s personal essay What Happens There, the play follows a young fact-checker who is assigned to a groundbreaking piece from a legendary author. The only problem is that the article is completely bogus. Buy your tickets today to see how the entire story plays out at Studio 54.
If you’re a fan of the 2004 cult classic “Mean Girls,” then chances are that you’ll enjoy the musical of the same name. Although it doesn’t have Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey or Rachel McAdams, this new Broadway show has tons of original songs that will have you singing along and dancing in the aisles.
If you’re unfamiliar with Mean Girls, it’s about a young woman who grows up in Africa, moves back to America and gets thrust right into the middle of clique-y high school drama. Click here for tickets to this show at the August Wilson Theatre.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Although it’s broken up into two separate, lengthy shows, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child still won the Tony award for Best Play of 2018.
As the much-anticipated follow-up to the ground-breaking series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child follows the titular character into his adult life as he struggles with the darkness of his past. Buy tickets to catch it at Lyric Theatre in the near future.
