Dear friends
I will be in New York next month and once again would like your advice about good plays and also musicals.
I was in New York last time in may 2001.
Thank you, Marcia

Try www.playbill.com for info on current shows and I think they were offering discounted tickets.

Broadway is buzzing right now as the season has kicked off. Tons of shows up. Also you can get half price tickets at TKTS in Times Square and at the South St. Seaport.

Have a great time.

Hi,

42nd Street is a nice musical, very
colorful and lively.

I'm hearing that Hairspray is very good
and also Mamma Mia.

Welcome to New York City, and have
lots of fun.

My 19-year old daughter and I were there in May. Saw Producers, Rent, Lion King and 42nd Street. Amazingly, the only one both of us did not like was Lion King. We both really enjoyed all of the other 3. We are going back at Christmas and my daughter wants to see Rent again. We understand Thoroughly Modern Milie is good as well as Urinetown and we plan to see them then!

Hands Down....Hairspray! Tickets are hard to come by though. You might look at ebay.com for tickets for next month (usually they post them on ebay approx. 1-2 weeks prior to the performance).

Dear friends
Thanks for your replies.I have already a good choice for musicals.
Now what about plays?We really enjoy plays even more than musicals(we loved Proof and Dinner with Friends, last time in N.Y).I am planning to see Burn This and would like to see other plays.
Any recomendation?
Thank you ,Marcia

Get yourself a copy of the magazine TimeOut New York. The best for tourists.

Marcia -- We enjoyed Frankie and Johnnie in the Clair du Lune starring Edie Falco and Stanley Tucci. Warning, though -- there is a long stretch of full nudity (on both actors' parts) at the very beginning.

I'll add a solid endorsement of Frankie & Johnny at the Clair de Lune. Edie Falco and Stanley Tucci are brilliant.
For what it's worth, friends who have seen both F & J and Burn This report that F& J is far superior.

There are several great plays off-Broadway. We absolutely loved Jolson & Co. at the Century Center for the Performing Arts. Just got tkts for the parents. Musical/play. Wonderful. We also really enjoyed The Butter and Egg Man at the Atlantic Theater, End Papers at the Variety Arts, and Take Me Out at the Public (soon to move to Broadway).

I have tickets for a new musical based on Billy Joel's music. It's called Movin Out. I think it's still in previews, but I've heard good things about it.

Metamorphoses is worth seeing, and there are often half-priced tickets at the booth. It is intelligent and moving, gets better as it goes, and theatrically it is really really really amazing. Beautiful.
