King KongWaiting in Anticipation for King KongOf all the upcoming Broadway shows, I'm most excited for King Kong. A new take on the classic Beauty and the Beast storyline from the music director of the 2001 film, Moulin Rouge. Aside from that, the achievement in puppetry will be a sight to behold. I'm super stoked!Temar U

Mean GirlsOn Broadway we wear PINK!Mean Girls is the glitter of Broadway! This musical stays faithful to the 2004 movie, while still elevating the story with non-stop movement, punchy choreography and vivid color. With it's quick wit and unceasing sass, this has easily become one of my favorites on Broadway. I can't wait to go back with my mom!Briana M

The FerrymanA New Irish TaleI'm thrilled to recommend The Ferryman. If you like family drama with supernatural twists this is the play for you. I've seen Jez Butterworth's other Broadway premieres, and I know The Ferryman is going to be one I will remember for a while. Dark yet humorous at times, a strong Irish drama that captivates the audience's imagination.Nicky M

Kinky BootsYou Better Work!It’s amazing what a pair of fabulous, sparkly red thigh-high stiletto boots can do! “Kinky Boots” follows the story of a small factory town in England who is struggling to adapt to changing times. As a floundering traditional shoe factory attempts to stay in business, an unlikely friendship helps save the day, by way of some fabulous drag queens! Cyndi Lauper’s original pop score is catchy and bright, and there are spectacular shoes abound! Emily L

School of RockKids Rock Out On BroadwayWith a fantastic score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, this musical is a joy from beginning to end! The entire cast is strong, but the kids really steal this show. The young actor/musicians are stellar and are led by (fake) substitute teacher Dewey Finn in a tour de force performance by a seemingly inexhaustible Eric Petersen. A great show for the entire family. Mike H.

Dear Evan HansenUplifting Anthem of the Misunderstood “Dear Evan Hansen” tells the emotional story of a high schooler struggling to figure out his place in life who gets mixed up in the tragic circumstances of a fellow student.
