Broadway is the pulse through which theater in New York City pumps, and it has, for a long time, been related to levels of theatrical magnificence beyond compare. With new musicals, deep dramas, and exciting revivals, Broadway offers a broad canvas for its audiences. Here is an in-depth guide for a knowledgeable theater buff or a curious first-timer to some of the best shows on Broadway right now that guarantee an experience of a lifetime.


Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical, “Hamilton,” has shattered the conventions of contemporary musical theater with its lively blend of hip-hop, jazz, and R&B. The show goes on to detail the life of the Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, giving the public an emotional and informative way to look at today’s America. “Hamilton” is not just a musical; it has become something of a cultural juggernaut, having won favor through its innovative storytelling and powerful score.

The Phantom of the Opera

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera,” now the longest-running musical in Broadway history, is a musical people must-see for its classic mystery and love story. It’s a brilliant show from the majesty of the Paris Opera House, with fabulous set designs, gorgeous costumes, and unforgettable tunes— including that one title song, which is brilliant and iconic. The story of the disfigured musical genius and his unfulfilled love for the beautiful soprano Christine Daaé is one of the all-time favorites.


“Wicked” is the prequel of the one-and-only classic book, “The Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. It is a compelling musical highlighting untold stories of the land of Oz’s witches: Elphaba and Glinda, who went from being rivals to best friends and became respectively known as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch. With fantastic production value and powerhouse ballads like “Defying Gravity,” “Wicked” is a spellbinding narrative on friendship and perspective.

The Lion King

It is an artistic wonder; “The Lion King” is a breathtakingly beautiful place, redoing the savanna itself using puppetry and imaginative costuming. It takes the audience’s mind right into the heart of Africa. Featuring Elton John and Tim Rice’s greatest hits, such as “Circle of Life” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” The Lion King is a musical that was created based on the Disney animated feature. The story of Simba—from his days as a cub through his reigning as the King of the Pridelands—comes to life in this stage adaptation, delivering a visual and aural spectacle.

Evan Hansen

Set in the digital age, the musical looks at such gut-wrenching issues as mental health, social media, and the search for belonging in this connected but isolating digital age. “Dear Evan Hansen” narrates the tale of a high school senior who is afflicted by a serious disorder of social anxiety through misrepresentation that goes out of control, changing his life. It has an intensely compelling story and emotional depth juxtaposed with truth and kindness.


A dazzling revival set in the jazz-infused decadence of the 1920s, the setting of “Chicago” lights up with sizzling choreography and a score that twinkles, replete with hits such as “All That Jazz” and “Cell Block Tango.” At the heart of it, it is satirical in its outlook on fame, corruption, and scandal, with the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. With its stylish execution and some very witty dialogue, it’s an enduring favorite.

Come From Away

It is a heartwarming musical about 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them on September 11, 2001. Come From Away is a musical about humanity, charity, culture clashes, and jangled nerves. Praised for its evocative score and uplifting spirit, this show celebrates human kindness in the face of adversity.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical

A theatrical production inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s cult film, “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” sweeps the audience into the heart of the Montmartre Quarter in Paris on the cusp of the 20th century. The music is the jukebox musical that tells the story of the love story and the characters involved with it: passionate, ambitious, and full of heartbreak. It is a sensuous feast with luxurious sets and costumes and sensational performances.

An Engaging Experience You Will Never Forget

Broadway shows have this magical power to take off into storytelling and spectacle unlike anything else in the world of entertainment and in the captivating city of New York. For sure, each of these shows is not just a performance but also a totally engaging experience into the vibrancy and diversity that characterizes Broadway itself.
