This megamusical classic is the longest-running musical in Broadway history. Indeed, it is entirely likely that there are cast members currently in the show that were born after Phantom's opening night on Broadway over two decades ago. Based on Gaston Leroux's 1909 novel, Phantom centers on the hideously deformed "Phantom" who lurks beneath the Paris Opera and the object of his obsession, the young soprano Christine, whom he is determined to make a star thereby winning her affections. With a timeless score and a design that reinvented the stage spectacular forever, Phantom is a must-see on Broadway.
Phantom has something for everyone, but it will be most enjoyed by devotees of the megamusicals of the 1980s and 90s. If you loved Les Miserables, Cats, and Miss Saigon, you'll love Phantom too. Phantom has also become very popular with non-English speaking tourists who can enjoy the melodic score and breathtaking set on their own.

Following a sold-out 2014 run of its Eugene Onegin, Russia's legendary Vakhtangov Theatre company returns to NY City Center with a new theatrical masterpiece. Set in Jewish shtetl in Lithuania at the turn of the 20th Century, Smile at Us, Oh Lord is once humorous and heartbreaking tale of a "little man", who remains committed to his faith and vehemently opposed to wrongdoing even as the world around him crumbles. Accented by soulful music, and featuring an all-star cast, the theater's latest play is brought to life by Vakhtangov's renowned artistic director, Rimas Tuminas.

Hear Ye, Broadway! From the codirector of The Book of Mormon and the producer of Avenue Q comes something original…something fresh...Something Rotten!, a world-premiere musical comedy about the musical comedy that started it all.
Welcome to the '90s — the 1590s — long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting, and reminders to turn off your cellphones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first MUSICAL! But amidst the scandalous excitement of Opening Night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self…and all that jazz.
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything's better with an exclamation point!
General rush tickets will be available for purchase at the St. James Theatre when the box office opens. Tickets are $35, limited to two per person, and subject to availability for that day's performances.
