Broadway is a never ending source of entertainment and fun. People all around the world gather every week on this magical avenue to attend some of the best performances and shows on the globe. Everyone who is visiting New York City must go to at least one Broadway performance. They are going to see great actors and marvelous plays. Even though summer is just around the corner, Broadway will not close its doors.
Individuals who are in a vacation with their kids can choose from the numerous Broadway musicals for children. Mary Poppins, for example, is a great show for children. The musical will be performed in the New Amsterdam Theater all summer long. The shows will be held the entire week, except Mondays. The play is inspired from the Walt Disney film and the stories created by P. L. Travers. Another impressive show happening on Broadway in June for kids is The Lion King. Those who have seen the Walt Disney movie will definitely adore this musical. The performance had its first opening on November 13, 1997 and has been played regularly since. The Lion King will be played at the Minskoff Theater until the end of the summer.
Grownups have their own shows on Broadway. For example, they must not miss the famous musical Chicago. This is a Tony – winning show in which the 20s and their crimes, love, hate, dance and jazz come back to life. It is a must see. It will be played at the Ambassador Theater until January 6, 2013. Those who are in for some comedy will love the play called Harvey, starring Jim Parsons. The opening night will be on June 14 at Studio 54 and the routine will be played until August 5, 2012. It is the lovely story of an invisible rabbit and the only man who can see him, who also happens to be his best friend.
A more serious show is The Best Man, a drama that is being played at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. The play talks about the presidential election and its 2 leading candidates. It is an interesting show for those who are into politics. The closing night of the show will be on September 9, 2012. The Columnist is another excellent performance that has received very good reviews until now. People will be able to see it at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater until July 1, 2012. The columnist is an American king of the midcentury. The story is spectacular and talks about the king’s political career and his personal dramas.
Last but not least, people should go see The Lyons, an amazing comedy played at the Cort Theater on Broadway. The show talks about a family who lost its patriarch and about how each member of the family realizes how lonely and isolated they are. Funny situations are coming about as they try to reestablish the human connection. The show can be seen until September 2, 2012. There are many other amazing shows on Broadway, so those who are interested should book their tickets in advance if they want to catch a good seat.
