Broadway Shows I would love to see

In the Heights

About: It's a new musical about three days in the life of Washington Heights, a vibrant and tight knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. It's a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Created by a team of New York's freshest young talents, IN THE HEIGHTS is the tale of a community at a crossroads. Find out what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home IN THE HEIGHTS.

Disney's The Little Mermaid

About: In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, a beautiful young mermaid named Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father – the king of the sea, escape the clutches of an evil sea witch and convince a prince that she’s the girl with the perfect voice. Based on the beloved film, THE LITTLE MERMAID features some of Disney’s most popular songs including “Part of Your World,” “Kiss the Girl” and the Academy Award®-winning “Under the Sea.”


About: After spending a hopelessly devoted summer with new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski, Danny Zuko's world is thrown upside down when Sandy appears at Rydell High on the first day of school. What follows is a rock 'n' roll celebration of growin' up, cruisin' with friends and goin' steady while Danny and The T-Birds spar with The Pink Ladies who take "good girl" Sandy under their wing.In addition to the smash songs "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightning" and "We Go Together" made famous by the Broadway production, the new revival includes "You're the One That I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Sandy" from the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as the lovelorn teens.Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game) directs and choreograph this new Broadway production. Stars Max Crumm and Laura Osnes were chosen by the popular vote on the NBC reality show You're the One That I Want!

The Lion King

About: Disney presents a brand-new musical that brings THE LION KING'S wildly popular story, the Oscar winning Elton John/Tim Rice songs, and an entire African landscape to the stage of the gloriously renovated Minkoff theatre. Directed and designed by Tony Award nominee Julie Taymor, THE LION KING fills the theatre with sights and sounds of one of Broadways most imaginative new talents - all to bring new life to Disneys crowd pleasing story of a young princes adventure-filled journey to adulthood - and the throne.

Young Frankenstein

About: A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family's tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather's mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga? Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show's raucous score includes 'The Transylvania Mania,' 'He Vas My Boyfriend' and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin's 'Puttin' On the Ritz.'


About: So much happened in Oz before Dorothy dropped in!With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, "Wicked" is based on the 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire and is the untold story of the Witches of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.
