The Very Best of NYC Theater

Til Divorce Do Us Part, Hedwig, Cabaret and more

Check out Til Divorce Do Us Part, a high-spirited musical comedy starring three beautiful ladies: Erin Maguire, Gretchen Wylder and Dana Wilson. Inspired by the true story of a Broadway producer’s wife, who suddenly finds herself in the middle of a divorce after decades of marriage, this fun musical celebrates a new chapter of her life with dance, song and laughter.

Neil Patrick Harris stars in the new Broadway production of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, officially opening at the Belasco Theatre on Apr 22. The story revolves around international transgender singer Hedwig Robinson, who brings her smashing rock-and-roll saga to New York to set the record straight about her life, loves and the botched op that left her with that “angry inch.”

“Life is a cabaret, old chum…come to the cabaret!” At long last, Cabaret is back. Officially opening Apr 24, the Roundabout Theatre production returns to Broadway (at Studio 54) for the first time since its 1998 revival. Michelle Williams debuts as Sally Bowles and Alan Cumming reprises his role as the Emcee.
Don’t miss Beautiful: The Carole King Musical playing in an open run at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she also wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem, if you’re John Travolta!) stars in If/Then, which officially opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Mar 30. On the verge of turning 40, Elizabeth moves back to New York City – the ultimate city of possibility, intent on a fresh start. But even in her new life, the smallest decision or most random occurrence will impact her world in ways she never dreamed possible. Set against the ever-shifting landscape of modern-day Manhattan, If/Then is an original new musical about how choice and chance collide, and how we learn to love the resulting fallout.
