Broadway is one of those things that I love to keep going back to! I’ve been loving attending matinees. It’s just such a fun way to break up your day and support the arts! There are a great amount of show options, I’ve got some choices perfect for families, and some that you can bring friends to. Tony Award winning shows are one of the most exciting things to see in New York City.
Things like hit songs, special effects, a talented cast or remake of a beloved film are a few characteristics we look for in both a new musical and return to Broadway history. Broadway tickets to some of the best shows these days aren’t so bad. A lot of the great ones are on national tour, but we still have amazing options left on the Broadway stage. This is a really exciting post and I hope you all get to enjoy some live theater!
We all know and love this show and it is always such a feel good musical! I got the chance to see one of the performers who plays Aladdin sing at an event recently and just from that, I can tell the show is amazing! This is a great one to bring your kids to, since it’s Disney and it’s a classic story! Broadway plays are a great way to spend a rainy day with kids this spring, if you are looking for some good times and not getting stuck indoors.
The Book of Mormon
The Book of Mormon is one of the most hilarious Broadway shows I’ve ever seen. The writers did a great job with the script and it has amazing music! I would say this is the perfect show to go to with friends after dinner and drinks or with family members who are of age, since there are some parts that aren’t so appropriate. This is a popular one and the tickets fly! This is a popular one and the tickets fly! Do you prefer an evening show or matinee?
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Are you or your kids Harry Potter fans? This is the show for you! Not only is this a really cool show just with all of the magic stunts they have, but it originally was split into 2 parts, so you would have 2 different shows to see. But since the pandemic, they felt it was safest to just make the show a little longer and put both parts together. They anticipate it will run about 3 and a half hours!
How could I do a Broadway shows roundup and not mention Hamilton?! This show is amazing to say the least! I’m sure you’ve all heard about it or possibly had the opportunity to see it on Disney Plus, but there really is no greater experience than seeing a live performance. Those magical memories stick with us forever. The tickets are at fantastic prices these days compared to pre pandemic, so you’re going to want to get any that you can find! Lin Manuel Miranda is a genius! It’s one of the most popular Broadway musicals and for obvious reasons. They bust through the box office with ticket sales all the time.
The Lion King
Here’s another great show to bring your kids to! It’s such a classic, feel good musical. The costumes amaze me every time I see them and the talent is unmatched! Gather your family and friends and watch the circle of life come to life on stage!
Yes, you read that correctly! The movie we all love has been officially made into a musical! And it’s hilarious! It can be hard to find a show that everyone will enjoy sometimes, especially if people aren’t huge musical fans, but this one is definitely the exception. You can bring anyone to this show and they will have a smile on their face! Get your tickets and “join the family”!
If I’m correct, I think this is one of the longest running Broadway shows and with good reason! It’s a classic and it will always be a great show with a fantastic meaning behind it. This is a fun one to bring the family and friends to, or even go by yourself, if you want! The music is catchy and the show itself is a blast.
Okay, tell me we all have heard of this one?! I think the best word to explain this musical is the spectacular! It’s based on the movie and takes place in Paris. It’s a love story like no other, that will have you completely wrapped up in it! Gather your friends and enter the romantic, glitzy world of Moulin Rouge!
Little Shop of Horrors
This is a classic musical! If you’re a theatre fan, you know this one too well! If you’re not, let me tell you, you will be mesmerized by a Venus Fly Trap plant on stage! There’s a love story intertwined with this plant madness and it’s been around for quite a few years. The music is so catchy, you will probably be singing it for a few weeks after you see it, but I promise it’s worth it!
Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star in the Demon Barber of Fleet Street musical. So if that’s not enough of a reason to run and get tickets, I don’t know what is! The music is amazing, the story is captivating and the performance is like no other! Tickets start at $66.
When I tell you I was hysterically laughing the whole time, I am not even exaggerating! We don’t need to have all of our walls up, sometimes we can tear some down. And that’s the biggest moral of this musical, which is a great lesson to live by. Tickets start around $60, so an affordable option! This hilarious musical is definitely one of the best Broadway shows of all time and is full of a vibrant ensemble of actors.
Believe it or not, this is an Andrew Lloyd Webber creation. Siella and I saw this a few weeks ago and she cannot stop talking about how much she loved it! Tickets start at around $50, so it’s pretty affordable and has some pretty funny moments. We all love a good Cinderella tale.
Six: The Musical
If you haven’t heard of Six, let me just tell you this is the “it” show of the year! Everyone is talking about how amazing it is and it’s all around. The costumes, music and vibes are all there and it’s one I highly recommend bringing friends to.
Calling all Michael Jackson fans and even if you aren’t you will enjoy this one! It’s all about his life and rise to fame. The dancing is superb and the music is obviously amazing! Running about 2 and a half hours, this is the perfect show to see.
We’re all talking about how Lea Michelle is back on Broadway. And we all need to see her! The show is almost three hours long and is the first revival of the tale on Broadway. If you are a classic Broadway fan, you will adore this! Beware, the tickets can get pricey to see it, but it’s worth it!
A few of our favorites from years past!
What are you excited most to see?
