If you’ve been digging through Playbill for reviews or adding and removing tickets to different musicals from your online shopping cart, it’s time to take a break. These are four must-see musicals for your summer trip to Broadway.

The Prom

A musical comedy that follows four iconic Broadway actors on their journey to create the perfect prom for a teen in the fictional town of Edgewater, Indiana, The Prom is a hilarious adventure full of all the high-energy dance and glitter your heart can handle.


Frozen 2 might be months away, but it’s never too early for snow on Broadway! Watch one of Disney’s most popular musicals transformed into a wonderland on stage. (There’s nothing like hearing “Let it Go” in person!)

King Kong

A 20-foot-tall, 20,000 pound ape in New York City? Only on Broadway! The drama of choosing between adventure and doing what’s right plays out on stage with the incredible Kong making his way onto the stage with the help of 13 performers and 16 microprocessors.


The star of the 73rd Annual Tony Awards, Hadestown takes the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to a Great Depression-inspired post-apocalyptic world. This year’s Best Musical is a story you don’t want to miss.
