There is nothing quite as magical as seeing a live performance on Broadway during the holiday season. Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start planning any potential trips and shows you want to catch this fall.
So far this fall, there have been quite a few shows to make their debut on Broadway. First on the list is ‘Bernhardt/Hamlet’, which made its world premiere on August 31st and the Roundabout Theatre Company. The show is about Sarah Bernhardt, the late French actress, and her experiences with the Danish prince. ‘The Nap’ also premiered in America on September 5th at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre and is based around the UK’s intense competitive pool culture. More notably, ‘Jerusalem’, which just ended a hit run in London as a play, has been transformed for Broadway. The play began October 21st, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Premiering right around the corner is ‘American Son’, set to hit stages on November 4th. Watch as Kerry Washington and Steve Pasquale explore the challenges and difficulties surrounding the disappearance of their son. The shows will be limited but can be caught at the Booth Theatre.
Officially opening on November 8th is ‘King Kong’. The play was written by Jack Thorne, most recognized for his writing of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’. Kong is sure to deliver with some innovative stagecraft and transformations to bring this bewildering show to life at the main stage Broadway Theatre.
‘The Cher Show’ is set to premiere on December 3rd, at the Neil Simon Theatre. Starring Stephanie J. Block, Teal Wicks, and Micaela Diamond, the show offers a glimpse into the life story of the Cher, who is known today for being a legendary entertainer over her years in the spotlight.
Last, but certainly not least, is ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’. The original novel has been transformed into a Broadway show written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin. The show will feature Jeff Daniels, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Gideon Glick.
Whatever your preference, there is something premiering for the whole family this fall on Broadway. Not only does Broadway provide a magical experience in the transformations that take place live before your eyes, but it also speaks to the greater purpose of the holidays: spending times with the ones you love, experiencing things you will never forget.
