Come See These New Shows on Broadway

With contemporary hits like The Book of Mormon and long-running staples like The Phantom of the Opera, it feels like Broadway is as exciting now as it ever was. But that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to the “veteran” shows on your next trip to New York City . Instead, why not check out these brand new shows on the Great White Way?

ROMEO AND JULIET

Most people are familiar with Romeo and Juliet, but chances are, you’ve never seen a production quite like this, which stars Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings). According to its producers, “In this new production, the members of the Montague household will be white, and the blood relatives of the Capulet family will be black. While race defines the family roots, the original cause of the ‘ancient quarrel’, passed down by successive generations to their young, has been lost to time. Shakespeare’s original dramatization of the play sets the two young lovers in a context of prejudice, authoritarian parents, and a never ending cycle of ‘revenge.’ Against this background, the strength of their love changes the world.” the play is set to open on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre

ROCKY

Based on the Oscar-winning 1976 film, Broadway will be “knocked out” by the new adaptation arriving from its run in Germany and will open in New York on February 11, 2014 at the Winter Garden Theater. This unique musical will be composed by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Thomas Meehan who wrote the book collaborated. Fans of the movie can rest assured that they will get a piece of the Academy Award winning film, as Sylvester Stallone will help produce the stage production.

BIG FISH

Based the novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 Colombia Pictures film starting Ewan McGregor, this fantastic and whimsical new musical centers around a young man whose father is dying. He tries to learn more about his dad by piecing together the stories he has been told over the years. The show will be directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman (who also did hits such as Contact, Crazy for You, and The Producers), with music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, The Addams Family). Opening night will take place October 6th, 2013 at the Neil Simon Theatre.
With all the great shows new and old, what are you planning to see this fall?
