11 SIX Musical on Broadway NYC
With SIX, an impressive and highly emotional musical from Great Britain composed by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss comes to Broadway in New York. The six divorced women of Henry VIII are invited on stage to describe their fate as queens in a world dominated by men.
An enchanting transformation takes place on stage: The queens, trapped in the values and rigid structures of the Royal Family, unfold into powerfully singing pop icons, offering a celebratory performance as they come to terms with the heartbreak and suffering of historical entanglements and tyranny of a husband and king.
Six Broadway New York offers top-notch and entertaining entertainment for the entire family. The characters of the six main actresses were inspired by pop stars such as Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Adele. You can look forward to an impressive evening that evolves from an historical and ironic reappraisal of sorrow and suffering to a boisterous party like a pop concert. The musical Six has been performed in London’s West End, in Chicago, in Boston, in Edmonton, in Sydney, and on several cruise ships. Now Six can be seen on the legendary Broadway in New York.
The musical Six could be seen as a 21st-century-style reckoning with the old monarchical structures – the six ex-wives of Henry VIII, tormented by death, divorce, torture, beheading, and assassination, come together in an afterlife as rebellious divas to collectively sing out, powerfully and sonorously, against the injustices that have befallen them. The musical consists of a retelling of the lives of the six ex-wives, with them holding a contest on stage. The winner of the contest is the woman who had the most horrible experience with her common husband. Continuing their competition, however, the pop queens come to the conclusion that they have defined themselves only through Henry, the King, and have been completely robbed of their individuality. Without their spouse’s affection, they could have led more fulfilling and successful lives, living happily ever after.
12 The Lion King
This touching musical tells the story of Simba, who has a difficult path to the throne ahead of him and must assert himself against his evil uncle Scar. It is about fear, courage, the meaning of life and that you must never give up. Based on the Disney film, this musical developed into a Broadway hit and impresses hundreds of visitors every day. When it comes to musicals, The Lion King is as good as it gets!
13 Kimberly Akimbo
Catch this brand-new Broadway show at the Booth Theatre beginning on November 22, 2022. Imagine being a teenager from New Jersey who happens to look like she’s 72 years old. That’s precisely what you get with Kimberly Akimbo.
This show stars Victoria Clark, a Tony Award-winning actress, who stars as Kim. She’s just your average funny and bright teen girl from Jersey. Or is she? Not exactly! She has an aging disease that makes her look like she’s 72. Yet, that’s not even the worst of her problems. Between possible felony charges, borderline personalities, and maneuvering family secrets, Kim tries to be happy even when the universe seems to be against her.
Written by David Lindsay-Abaire, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and Jeanine Tesori, a Tony Award winner, this is the most moving and funniest play to hit Broadway in decades.
14 Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

That’s where the story picks up. When Harry Potter’s son Albus first arrives at Hogwarts, not only must he face the challenge of living up to his famous father’s reputation but also must carve his own path in the school’s hallowed halls. Nothing is ever simple in Hogwarts and Albus’ adventure is both nostalgic for fans of the original series and packs plenty of its own twists and surprises for seasoned and new viewers alike.

Since its debut in 2011, the Musical The Book of Mormon was considered edgy and caused a lot of controversy for its vulgar and profane language.

No one is spared, not even Jesus or Darth Vader! The intent of The Book of Mormon Musical is not to offend anyone, but to ultimately endorse positive power: It doesn’t matter what you believe in, as long as it can give you hope and make you stronger.
