Broadway Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys tells the story of '60s musical sensation The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. The Tony-winning musical chronicles these blue-collar boys from New Jersey who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks but eventually made the journey to pop superstardom.
Broadway Matilda the Musical
Transferring from a blockbuster run in London’s West End—where it received seven Olivier Awards, more than any other production in West End history—to a new home on Broadway, Roald Dahl’s classic story tracks a remarkable young girl who is mistreated by the adults in her life but (with the help of one caring teacher) finally discovers the true extent of her abilities.
Broadway Fiddler on the Roof
The story of Tevye and his struggle to maintain his Jewish customs in an ever-changing world is one of Broadway’s most well-known musicals. And this revival is the fifth time the show plays the Great White Way. Tony-nominated actor Danny Burstein (South Pacific, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) fills the central role in a staging directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific). Music director Ted Sperling oversees a score that features classics including "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and "To Life."
