Long before Carole King was a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her 20s, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.
Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband, Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music; she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, comes this hilarious Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. The Book of Mormon was written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, and is codirected by Parker and Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone).
Winner of the 2011 Tony Award for Best Musical, The Book of Mormon has certainly captured the hearts of many in the Broadway community by presenting modern, in-the-know, and often profane content in the tried-and-true form of a very traditional integrated book musical, complete with tap dancing.

Complications arise when the wives of the Ephesians, Adriana and her servant Luce, mistake the two strangers for their husband. The couples eventually get the situation resolved after Adriana's sister Luciana and the Syracusan Antipholus fall in love.
Based on the critically acclaimed play that inspired the now classic film, this streetwise musical will take you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s — where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be.

David Shayne is a straight-arrow playwright who plans to stand firm against compromising his work, but quickly abandons that stance when his producer finds a backer to mount his show on Broadway. There's just one catch, however: The backer is a mobster who sees Shayne's play as a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend. Throw in an aging diva, a savant hit man, and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and this is one Broadway show that is sure to knock 'em dead.
The seedy glamour of the Kit Kat Club and its bawdy emcee provide an unsettling but fitting backdrop to the story of the hard-living entertainer Sally Bowles in the decadent nightlife of Weimar Germany.

Oh, and leave your troubles at the door — life is beautiful at Cabaret, John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff's Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.

One of the most iconic works in American theater returns to Broadway for the first time in more than two decades.

Multi-Tony winner Jack O'Brien (The Front Page, The Coast of Utopia) directs, with choreography by New York City Ballet's Justin Peck.
Set in a small New England factory town, Carousel depicts the tragic romance between a troubled carnival barker and the young woman who gives up everything for him. Elevated to an epic scale with a sweeping musical score and incandescent ballet sequences, this story of passion, loss, and redemption introduced Broadway to a new manner of musical drama — one that produced some of the American Songbook's most iconic numbers and would captivate theatergoers for generations to come.
One of the longest-running shows on Broadway, Chicago is a New York City institution. It tells the story of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, two killer-dillers on their way to fame by any means possible.

Chicago features a classic score by John Kander and Fred Ebb, including the songs "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango," and "Razzle Dazzle." So you better slick your hair and wear your buckle shoes for Chicago on Broadway.

She'll make it to the prince's ball and capture his heart. Sure, she may lose one of her shoes, but what she gains is worth more than gold!
In addition to the one-hour musical, the audience receives a special treat — interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. In them the audience learns about the original book and how it was turned into a musical. A discussion takes place about the themes of the show and how the performing arts bring literature to life. Then kids and other family members make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as souvenirs. When they watch the show after participating in the workshop, they are familiar with the art forms and themes presented in the production.
Note: The whole program (preshow workshop and actual performance) is approximately two hours long.

It's been called the "edge of the world." The weather is wild, but the locals never lack for warmth. And it's here, in Newfoundland, that a remote town became the epicenter of a remarkable true story filled with unusual characters, unexpected camaraderie, and uncommon generosity.
That story began in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Flights had to be rerouted, and 38 of them, carrying a total of 6,579 passengers, were grounded near this Newfoundland town. The locals put their lives on hold and opened their homes to a world of strangers. In a heartbeat, the town's population doubled. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
Come From Away, which tells the story of those passengers and that town, is a new musical written by Tony Award nominees (and Canadians) Irene Sankoff and David Hein. The direction is by Tony winner Christopher Ashley and the choreography by Tony nominee Kelly Devine (Rocky).

This jumping, jiving Tony nominee is a rebellious teen comedy event! Based on the cult classic 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray. It's 1954, everyone likes Ike, nobody likes Communism, and Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He's a bad boy with a good cause — truth, justice, and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a "drape" (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby's moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It's Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.
Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new American musical about life and the way we live it. It first opened off-Broadway in a production that received an Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Many cast members from that production have transferred with the show to Broadway. Obie Award winner Steven Levenson wrote the musical's book; the music and lyrics are by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal) directs.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
Michael Disher directs. Amanda Jones musically directs.

Mitch Papadopolous always dreamed of being the next Bruce Springsteen, but he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while, he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday, when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey.
And when his high school archnemesis (with a 20-year-old grudge and a tangerine spray-tan) threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands.
So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang (a math teacher who isn't good at math, an Irish cop who dreams of being on Broadway, a dermatologist who can't get a date, and a 16-year-old Jewish rapper who makes Vanilla Ice look cool), and sets out to win the battle and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind — proving it's never too late to give your dreams one last shot.
