Broadway Musicals

Broadway musicals have produced some of the most famous live performances in the world

Musicals on Broadway are usually the most popular NYC shows to attend, and often run much longer than the average Broadway play. (Not that any Broadway show is "average.") Broadway musicals are an NYC tradition, and have become a booming NYC business since their popularity rose in the 1920's.

Since then, Broadway musicals have produced some of the most famous live performances in the world. Classic Broadway musicals like Cats and Rent became some of the most popular musicals of all-time, and were rewarded with long Broadway runs which allowed NYC tourists of all ages and generations to enjoy them. Today, there are several more new Broadway classics making a name for themselves in the Theater District of Manhattan.

  • Chicago the Musical: This Broadway show combines burlesque-inspired theatrics with dazzling Broadway costumes straight out of the 1920's. Featuring a roaring Jazz score and an intriguing plot that grabs the audience from the beginning, Chicago is a must-see Broadway musical in NYC.
  • Wicked the Musical: Wicked on Broadway is a family-friendly NYC show that tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West. One of the most popular Broadway shows since it premiered at the Gershwin Theatre NYC, Wicked has been a hot Broadway ticket for the better part of a decade.
