If you don’t know someone who knows someone who knows someone in this hip-hop musical, good luck scoring tickets — unless you are willing to pay big bucks. Prices for regular seats start at $139 and premium at $549. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s rare Broadway phenomenon captivates the theater traditionalist and the young trendy individual. Hamilton is housed at the Richard Rogers Theatre. This masterpiece tells the tale of founding father Alexander Hamilton, through his triumphs and tribulations.

 

 

Waitress

Housed at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, Tony winner Jessie Mueller returns to Broadway with another spectacular performance. Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s film Waitress, the musical celebrates life, motherhood, friendship and pie. Find out if Mueller, who is Jenna, can bake herself a new life. The musical’s score is by five-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles.

 

 

Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical with the book, lyrics and music by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. The musical follows two Mormon missionaries as they share their scriptures with those of a Ugandan village. The two young men endure many troubles along their journey. The Tony- and Grammy-winning musical is housed at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre.
