After a year-and-a-half in the dark, Broadway is back! New Yorkers know first-hand how unusual it was to see this typically busy and bustling area shuttered and stagnant during lockdown. Now, it’s back in business and ready to entertain New Yorkers and visitors alike.
Now that we’re heading into the holiday season, Broadway show tickets are in even bigger demand. Looking at the current Broadway shows list, you’ll find new productions and returning favorites side-by-side.
Here are a few of the hottest Broadway shows for 2021 and into the New Year!
The Music Man
Originally scheduled to debut in 2020, this revival of Meredith Wilson’s classic musical ran into lots of trouble – thanks to the pandemic. Now, it’s ready to entertain everyone with its charming characters, wonderful set pieces and unforgettable songs!
Hugh Jackman steps into the role of Professor Harold Hill, a traveling con man. Hill convinces the residents of a small Iowa town that their children are in danger of becoming delinquents. Lucky for them, he has a solution to their troubles: Form a boys band. He’s got the instruments and uniforms, and the townspeople have the money. Only Marion, the local librarian, suspects something amiss with Hill’s credentials.
Hilarious and heartwarming The Music Man begins previews in December and January (with many performances sold out) at the Winter Garden Theatre. Its regular run starts in February 2022. Don’t miss out on this season’s most anticipated show. Get tickets today!
To Kill A Mockingbird
Before Broadway shut down, this adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel starred multi-award winner Ed Harris. This fall, Emmy winner Jeff Daniels steps into the iconic role of Atticus Finch, a small town lawyer given an impossible task: Defend Tom Robinson, an innocent man accused of an unspeakable crime in a highly racist community.
Told from the point of view of Atticus Finch’s daughter, Scout, To Kill a Mockingbird is a wonderful mix of courtroom drama, social commentary, and a coming-of-age story. Now playing at the Shubert Theatre. If you want to see Jeff Daniels in this show, get your tickets now. His engagement ends on January 2, 2022 and his replacement has not been announced.
David Byrne’s American Utopia
Not your average Broadway show, David Byrne’s American Utopia is a one-of-a-kind production that will wow you! A unique mix of rock concert, performance art, dance recital and social commentary piece, David Byrne’s American Utopia finds the former Talking Heads leader fronting an 11-piece band. Instead of standing stationary or seated, each band member (even the drummers and keyboardist) are able to roam and dance about the entire stage – without cables or wires.
A Broadway smash from 2019 until 2020, demand was so high for this feel-good show that Byrne brought it back. This time it runs at the St. James Theatre until early March 22, 2022. Don’t miss out!
What can be said about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical that hasn’t been said already? Whether you’ve already experienced it or are ready to experience it for a second, third or fourth time, Hamilton is back on Broadway and ready to astound audiences again!
A contemporary look at the world of our country’s Founding Fathers, is entertaining, educational and enlightening – all at the same time! Don’t miss this marvelous opportunity to see Hamilton live on stage. Now playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
These are just a few of the many wonderful Broadway productions that await you this fall and winter! While some folks have to travel great distances to see a Broadway show, 363 Bond Street residents only have to travel about 30 minutes to reach NYC’s iconic theater district.
