Now that Fall is here and with the new season kick off months ago, there is still a list of Broadway musicals and plays waiting for you to see. Whether you are a tourist visiting the Big Apple for the first time or New Yorker who needs to catch up, you can choose from different shows, from revivals to limited runs.
Here are 3 of the best Broadway shows you should not miss:
The Phantom of the Opera
If you still haven’t seen this musical or you want to see it again, now is the time to do so. It has been on Broadway for almost three decades but still, the love story depicted in the show, its grandeur and the magnificent Andrew Lloyd Weber score is still incomparable. Be part of an enthralling musical and fall in love with the characters on stage.
Watch Bruce Willis on his Broadway debut at Broadhurst Theater. He will play the role of the novelist, Paul Sheldon, who tries to reinvent himself as a writer and killed his main character in the story, Misery Chastain. This is based from the novel of Stephen King whose main character was held captive by an obsessed fan, portrayed on stage by Laurie Metcalf. The show runs until February 14, 2016.
Another Hollywood star debuting on Broadway is Academy Award-nominated actress, Keira Knightley. She will be playing the love struck Therese Raquin and will be performing along with Tony winners Judith Light and Gabriel Ebert. This is an adaptation of the novel of Emile Zola, a story of love, betrayal, passion and deceit. Knightley’s performance is extraordinary! It opened in October 29 and has a limited run only until January 3, 2016.
If you have other shows in mind, there are still other performances to catch. Fiddler on the Roof will run until July next year and there is also China Doll with Al Pacino performing. The shows in Broadway will always be alive and this is what makes New York a city that never sleeps.
