TheaterMania is planning an unforgettable weekend November 10-12 as we invite our readers to experience some of the most exciting new shows on and off-Broadway.
It starts Friday evening at the Foundry Bar in Times Square, where you will pick up your tickets over pre-show cocktails. Then we’re off to the revival of Monty Python’s Spamalot starring James Monroe Iglehart and a host of stage comedians as King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table on a ridiculous quest for the Holy Grail.
Saturday is a double-feature, starting with a matinee of the new play The Shark is Broken about the on-set clash of personalities during the filming of Jaws. Weekenders will be taken to dinner at Bond 45 with a special surprise guest, followed by an evening performance of Harmony, the new musical by Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman about a troupe of comedian harmonists in 1930s Germany.
Sunday afternoon, we’ll attend the buzziest show in New York: Here We Are is based on two films by Luis Buñuel and features a score by the late Stephen Sondheim. This is your last chance to see a new Sondheim musical, and you’ll be seeing it in high style with a cast that includes Bobby Cannavale, Micaela Diamond, Amber Gray, Denis O’Hare, Steven Pasquale, and David Hyde Pierce.
Weekenders who want even more have the option to add on a performance of Hamilton Sunday evening, and a performance of Melissa Etheridge: My Window Thursday night. All of it adds up to an extraordinary few days with the best theater New York has to offer.
