If the timeless greats are what you love, than these shows are for you:
My Fair Lady might be the most beloved musical of all time. This lavish production at Lincoln Center tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a lovely yet unrefined Cockney girl, and Henry Higgins, a snooty linguistics professor who sets out to make Eliza a “proper lady.” The cast, led by Harry Hadden-Paton and Lauren Ambrose, shines in this Bartlett Sher directed musical masterpiece.
To Kill A Mockingbird might not be a musical, but it’s definitely not to be missed. This new iteration of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning book is directed by Bartlett Sher and adapted by Aaron Sorkin. Immerse yourself in the adored story of the youthfully innocent Scout, her righteous lawyer father Atticus Finch, and one town’s exploration of justice and integrity.

Frozen brings the massive Disney hit to life with plenty of flair. The kids will love watching Anna and her sister Elsa journey towards self-acceptance and understanding with tons singing, favorite characters, and glittering costume changes along the way.
