Best Broadway Plays

Broadway theater is one of the biggest draws of visiting New York City. Yes, there’s the skyscrapers, amazing food, and energy to keep you up all night, but the heart of NYC lives with its artists. New York is packed with them! And you, dear reader, have decided to take a sampling. When you think of the most well-known Broadway shows, you may think of Andrew Lloyd Webber or musicals like West Side Story or Les Mis. But some of the best Broadway shows in town are plays. Reliant only on dialogue, plays dig deep into the human experience. If you want to witness a story that will exercise your mind while entertaining your heart, you will want a ticket to see a Broadway Play. 

New in Town

These shows may ask important questions, challenge your worldview, or offer a unique perspective.  Buy tickets to any of these productions, and you are sure to leave changed from the person who entered the theater. You may even find yourself on a long walk after the show contemplating everything you’ve ever known to be true. If so, check out Travel and Leisure's guide to the best scenic walks in NYC.

The Cottage more than fits the bill.”


Good Night, Oscar

Good Night, Oscar: This play written by Doug Wright and directed Lisa Peterson played at the Belasco Theatre after a hit run at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.

Set in Vienna, the play follows one extended family from 1899 into the 20th century and has a cast of 38 actors. Time Out London says “The play asks what it means to be Jewish, ethnically, spiritually, in the eyes of one’s own community and in the eyes of others… ‘Leopoldstadt’ is a powerful and sincere tribute to a vanished people. Hopefully they can live on for a little longer thanks to the last great play of the last great writer of the twentieth century.”


Prima Facie

Prima Facie: Written by Suzie Miller and directed by Justin Martin, Prima Facie ran at the Golden Theatre on Broadway after a hit run in London’s West End.

Comer delivers…[she] manages to infuse breath-taking emotional drama in every last word.”

The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window at the James Earl Jones Theatre

The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window
