Travel to NYC to See the Top Must See Broadway Shows
New York City is known for offering many tourist attractions, especially those around the holiday season. One of the most popular attractions for tourists is hitting up Times Square and the Theatre district to watch the top must see Broadway shows of the season. Even if you’re not a huge fan of the arts, Broadway shows bring an excitement and thrill to visiting New York. So for your next trip, consider making it a Broadway vacation and check out some of the best that Broadway has to offer this season. The Book of Mormon “The Book of Mormon” has hit Broadway with a bang, garnering a ton of musical conversation as a must see Broadway show this year. The collaboration of “South Park” creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and “Avenue Q’s” composer, Robert Lopez, ignites a buzz of a satirical yet heartwarming story that will engage all types of audiences. In the story, two young missionaries are sent to present day Uganda in hopes of spreading the word and mission of Joseph Smith, the leader of the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. Throughout the production you will be enchanted with the coming together of the villagers and missionaries, and you will be laughing out loud at the hilarious over the top messages being presented and sung about. A word of caution is that some of the language may not be suitable for younger audiences, so if your Broadway vacation includes young children, this may not be an appropriate choice. A Christmas Carol A classic staple of Broadway, this must see Broadway show transcends time as well as generations, as audiences are sure to happily return to see this show. “A Christmas Carol” is a wonderful option for a Broadway vacation taken in December, especially around the holidays. Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from selfish grouch to lovable and generous man is sure to warm the heart. This tale of generosity and appreciation for what you have is a message that can never be outdated, and will keep the holiday spirit alive all year round. Kinky Boots Another show taking Broadway by storm is the hit, “Kinky Boots.” The Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper musical brings together a factory owner and a drag performer in hopes of restoring a failing shoe business, while addressing the message of what defines masculinity. Lola, the drag performer, introduces Charlie, the factory owner to a niche market of customers for who he can tailor his shoes. With Lola’s help, Charlie creates a newer, higher fashion type of boot, straying away from his original style of work boot. With high-powered musical numbers, as well as exuberant fashion pieces, this show will have you cheering on the team of Charlie and Lola and will have you up out of your chair dancing along.
