The Best Broadway Shows to See in New York Right Now

A list of the best NYC Broadway musicals you can get tickets to right now. 🎭

by New York Bucket List


As the birthplace of modern-day Broadway, it's no surprise that seeing a show is one of the top reasons people from all over the world come to visit New York. Broadway, with its glitzy theaters, bright lights, and classic show tunes, is quintessential New York.

Maybe you're a theater geek and avid musical goer, or maybe seeing a Broadway show is something you keep saying you'll get around to someday (kind of like going to the Statue of Liberty or the top of the Empire State Building). But with so many great shows out right now, there's no excuse to put it off. From old classics like Chicago to new, inventive musicals like & Juliet, there's a show for everyone. Laugh, cry, and even bring the kids. Broadway is back.

Six Broadway Musicals Worth Braving Times Square For

The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is a hilarious and irreverent musical by the duo behind "South Park", Trey Parker and Matt Stone. This Tony Award-winning production tells the story of two naive Mormon missionaries who embark on a journey to Uganda. Fusing clever humor, catchy tunes, and sharp satire—all the elements the duo is known for—this show delivers a riotous and thought-provoking experience that will leave you laughing long after the curtain falls.

For quintessential Broadway showiness, Chicago is a must-see. Experience crime, pizzazz, and all that jazz in the longest-running revival in Broadway History. With a rotating celebrity cast in the lead roles, you’re almost guaranteed to see a star no matter when you go. Set during America’s Prohibition era, Chicago tells the gripping tale of two showgirls trying to keep their talent and good looks in the papers instead of their allegedly murderous acts.

& Juliet

The charming & Juliet is a fresh and modern take on Shakespeare's timeless tale, Romeo and Juliet. The show picks up where the original story left off (after Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, decides she doesn’t like the ending), and explores what would have happened if Juliet hadn't taken her own life. Spoiler: Juliet’s besties and trips to Paris are involved. Nominated for nine Tony Awards, the show is packed with electrifying pop anthems and dynamic choreography, & Juliet celebrates love, self-discovery, and female empowerment in a dazzling display of talent and innovation.

Where: Stephen Sondheim Theatre: 124 W 43rd St, New York, NY
