What trip to New York City would be complete without a fabulous Broadway show? One of our favorite Broadway shows is Chicago: The Musical. This memorable production, based on the 1926 play by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins, is the longest-running musical revival in Broadway history and the fifth longest-running show. The play tells the story of Roxie Hart, an ambitious chorus girl who finds fame through murder. As a satire, this play is sure to entertain! Find promos for Chicago here.

The Roaring Twenties not your thing? Better check out Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Conceived by Julie Taymor and featuring music by U2's Bono and The Edge, this $60 million Broadway production - the most expensive in Broadway history - has received much publicity for its disastrous technical glitches and ever-delayed opening day. Despite poor reviews and changes in creative control (Taymor, the play's director, was recently ousted by the show's producers), the play continues to sell tickets and generate buzz. This is one play you simply must see, if not for its own merits, for its impact on history. Tickets start at just $67.50!
