Hit the Y with Groff & Luker
April 5 through 7 at 92Y Uptown
Broadway faves Jonathan Groff and Rebecca Luker join forces (and incredible voices) to honor two of Broadway's true greats: Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. This incarnation of the Lyrics and Lyricists series at 92Y will feature music from their big hits like Oklahoma!, Carousel and The King and I, and a never-before-heard song from South Pacific. This is very literally music to our ears. Click for tickets!
Get Lucky with Tony Danza
April 7 at 54 Below
Love, lust, gambling and Tony Danza! What more do you need? Get a sneak peek of Jason Robert Brown's Broadway-bound musical Honeymoon in Vegas, featuring the top-drawer cast from the original Paper Mill Playhouse production. That cast includes Tony nominee Rob McClure, Brynn O’Malley, Nancy Opel and yes, Mr. Danza. We do, we do! Click for tickets!
Spend the Night with Alan Cumming
April 10 on NBC
Alan Cumming is coming! The actor is currently reprising the Tony-winning role of the Emcee in Cabaret, but if you can't get to Studio 54, you can see him perform the show's opening number "Willkommen" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. We know he's going to knock it out of the park! Now we're just hoping his nipple glitter is also making a reprise.
See Bullets Fly (But Don't Speak)
Opening April 10 at the St. James Theatre
Is it us, or did Broadway just get a little more glamorous? It must be the opening night of Bullets Over Broadway, a heavy-hitter in terms of both story and star power. Zach Braff plays an aspiring playwright forced to cast a no-talent mobster's girlfriend in his new play, and of course, hilarity ensues. Written by Woody Allen and directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, this splashy new musical comedy is a must-see. Click for tickets!
Two Words: Daniel Radcliffe
Beginning April 12 at the Cort Theatre
That's right, DanRad fans: the Harry Potter fave is back on Broadway, and he's proving again what a versatile performer he really is. Radcliffe is shedding the brightly-colored musical trappings of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, his last Broadway outing, to take on the title role of The Cripple of Inishmaan, a dark Martin McDonagh play that Radcliffe himself has described as "brutally funny." We. Can't. Wait. Click for tickets!
