Come experience a 360° heart-pounding theatrical experience!
Love, Loss and What I Wore: An intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron, the show is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as the recollections of the Ephrons' friends. Like the popular book, Love, Loss and What I Wore uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to. Directed by Karen Carpenter, the production is performed by a rotating cast of five all-star actors, who will perform in four-week cycles.
Rock of Ages: The music that ignited a generation heats up Broadway in the smash hit, Rock of Ages. The classic rock love story of the decade erupts into Broadway's best party all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as Every Rose Has Its Thorn, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again, Don't Stop Believin' and more. This hilarious five-time Tony nominated musical is nothin' but a good time.
Sister Act: London's acclaimed musical sensation arrives on Broadway this spring! Based on the smash-hit film, Sister Act features an original score by 8-time Oscar® and 10-time Grammy Award® winner Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, The Little Mermaid, Enchanted) and direction by 4-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks (La Cage aux Folles, A Funny Thing…, Guys and Dolls.) Disco diva Deloris Van Cartier (Olivier Award nominee Patina Miller) has dreams of hitting the big time. But when she walks in on a "hit" of a different kind, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look - a convent! At first, Deloris - disguised as "Sister Mary Clarence" - has trouble adjusting to life under the strict rule of Mother Superior (Tony Award winner Victoria Clark). But when she transforms the convent's choir into the most glorious new musical act in town, Deloris forms a lasting bond with her newfound friends… and the gang that's chasing her finds itself up against an unstoppable team of soulful sisters! Don't miss this spectacular and hilarious American premiere. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason for Broadway to rejoice!
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark: Be the first to see the brand-new version of Broadway's most talked about musical spectacular – with new music, new scenes and a whole new take on the mind-blowing theatrical adventure. Bono & the Edge of U2 have joined forces with a new team of artists to bring this sensation to even greater heights. Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark features new music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy winners Bono and The Edge of U2 and direction by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor (The Lion King). Drawing on over 40 years of Marvel comics, co-writers Taymor and Glen Berger spin a spectacular new take on this tale that's familiar and fresh yet filled with unexpected twists and turns.
Wonderland The Musical: Discover Broadway's heartwarming and spectacular new musical ... Wonderland. An exciting new spin on the classic story of Alice and her Looking-Glass World, Wonderland is about a modern-day woman who goes on a life-changing adventure far below the streets of New York City, where a marvelous cast of familiar characters help her rediscover what's really important. Featuring a fresh, contemporary pop score from the creator of Jekyll and Hyde, Wonderland arrives on Broadway following a sold-out, two-city national premiere.
Zarkana: Cirque du Soleil invites you to Zarkana, a beautifully bizarre journey premiering exclusively at Radio City Music Hall. This epic spectacle takes audiences into a fantastical and suspenseful world where highly-acrobatic feats are heightened by original live music and interactive multimedia elements. Zarkana transforms the grandest stage in the world into a world of unreality as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine. Directed by the internationally acclaimed François Girard (The Red Violin, Silk), this new production features 71 international artists and follows Zark, a magician on a quest to find his lost powers. He finds himself plunged into a world inhabited by surreal and mesmerizing creatures. The music of Zarkana is composed by Nick Littlemore, a protégé of Sir Elton John.
