2024 Broadway Show Recommendations for Travel Groups:

  • One of the most riveting new Broadway shows is The Who’s TOMMY, which rewrote music history as a rock opera in 1969. Its longevity and relevancy today can be attributed to its innovative narrative, bold music, and unyielding spirit. Even after 25 years since it made its grand Broadway debut, the show continues to break boundaries and defy the conventions of musical theatre. The combination of its award-winning history and the promise of a visually stunning and sonically overwhelming new production in March 2024 makes this musical a must-watch for all groups.
  • Lempicka, another inspiring Broadway musical, intertwines the world of arts and an inspiring journey of survival and love. Its uniqueness lies in its vibrant connection to the art world, as the narrative traces the life of an iconic Polish artist, Tamara de Lempicka, who rose to fame in the glamorous bohemian circles of Paris between the wars.
  • Following the waves of melody straight into the world of Harmony, the musical stands out with its heart-touching, history-infused storyline and uplifting tunes. Penned by Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman, this show paints a tapestry of love, ambition, and the true essence of brotherhood.

A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical on Broadway in NY

  • A Beautiful Noise is an absolute treat for music aficionados. Not only does the show offer a much-deserved tribute to the phenomenal Neil Diamond, but its musical appeal lies in the genius of the tunes, each one filling the air with a harmony that strikes the chord of nostalgia and admiration.
  • The Blue Man Group, a stellar show with a unique performing arts style, presents an experience that transcends the traditional Broadway flow of performances. Known for their inventive, word-free performances, the Blue Men’s interaction with the audience is unlike any other, sparking a sense of unity and shared energy through rhythms, sounds, and physical comedy.
  • SIX reimagines Broadway through a modern lens, presenting a unique narrative derived from historical figures—the six wives of Henry VIII—fused with a pop-concert-style performance. Its smaller, more intimate chamber performance style brings the tale of these women to life in a breathtakingly renewed and relevant way.
  • Another highly recommended show for groups embarking on a Broadway quest is Aladdin. Woven from the familiar story from our childhood, the show features delightful sets, truly magical effects, and grand musical numbers that have enchanted audiences since its debut. 
  • If your group includes music lovers and pop culture enthusiasts, don’t skip MJ. The show pays tribute to the unparalleled legacy of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, illuminating his life’s journey with thrilling performances built upon his unique choreography set to his iconic music.
  • Finally, Wicked remains an iconic Broadway sensation for its unique retelling of the Wizard of Oz story from the perspective of the witches. Its powerful story combined with memorable soundtracks like ‘Defying Gravity’ and ‘Popular’ ’ make it a must-watch. To enhance your experience, consider joining Behind the Emerald Curtain, a backstage tour that offers insights into the making of the show.

Each of these Broadway shows offers a unique experience that caters to different tastes and preferences, making them perfect options for your group traveling ventures. Don’t miss out on the grandeur and excitement that Broadway has to offer!
