Broadway Shows for 14 year old Daughter

Jump to last reply

I'm surprising my 14-year-old with a trip to NYC for first time in the first week of August. I'm so excited - she's going to faint when she finds out!

I saw a post regarding theatre for teens - and am wondering if anyone has any current information/suggestions on the best shows to bring her to. We'll be there for a week, so we do have the luxury of seeing a couple of shows. She loves music, and is also smart/sophisticated for her age. Considering that she won't be going again (we live overseas) for a while, I'm really hoping to choose the best possible shows for her.

There seems to be a big controversy about Wicked. I haven't seen it, so I have no idea if it's good. I really would like to give her the "wow" factor in these shows, as I had when I was a teen and my parents took my to the theatre. I loved Les Mis, Phantom, Fiddler, Chess...all the classics but don't know what's a hit these days for teens.

Any suggestions?
