The Shows

The Broadway Teachers Workshop in NYC includes your ticket to see FOUR HIT SHOWS, along with post show discussions* (*where possible), related workshops and master classes in all aspects of theatre with teaching artists, cast and creative team members from the shows we see.

SWEENEY TODD STARRING JOSH GROBAN

For the first time since 1980, Broadway audiences will experience Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award®–winning score as it was performed in the original production—with Jonathan Tunick’s original 26-player orchestration on an epic scale. Tony Award–winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton) helms the return of this musical thriller starring Tony and Grammy® nominee Josh Groban (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) as Sweeney Todd, and Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford (Sunday in the Park with George, Kinky Boots) as Mrs. Lovett.

KIMBERLY AKIMBO

Kim (Tony Award winner VICTORIA CLARK) is a bright and funny Jersey teen, who happens to look like a 72-year-old lady. And yet her aging condition may be the least of her problems. Forced to maneuver family secrets, borderline personalities and possible felony charges, Kim is determined to find happiness in a world where not even time is on her side. After its world premiere production at the Atlantic Theater Company, where it opened to rave reviews, KIMBERLY AKIMBO comes to Broadway this fall. Named “Best New Musical of the Year” (Time Magazine, New York Magazine, Time Out New York), KIMBERLY AKIMBO features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE, music by Tony Award winner JEANINE TESORI, choreography by DANNY MEFFORD and direction by JESSICA STONE.

SOME LIKE IT HOT STARRING CHRISTIAN BORLE

WHO SAYS THEY DON’T MAKE GREAT BIG MUSICAL COMEDIES LIKE THEY USED TO? 

SOME LIKE IT HOT brings one of Hollywood’s greatest comedies to new life on the Broadway stage. Don’t miss your chance to join this fast-paced, sassy, brassy cross-country romp, as two best friends run for their lives – and find true love where they least expect it. Featuring a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), a book by Matthew López (The Inheritance) and Amber Ruffin (“The Amber Ruffin Show”), and choreography and direction by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), SOME LIKE IT HOT is playing at the Shubert Theatre.

LIFE OF PI

Winner of five Olivier Awards including Best New Play, LIFE OF PI  roars onto Broadway this spring in an epic tale of endurance and hope. After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi is left stranded on a lifeboat with the most unlikely of companions: a Royal Bengal tiger. With time and nature against them, the two must learn to trust one another if they are to survive. Based on one of our most beloved works of fiction, LIFE OF PI will “make you believe in the power of theater” (The Times of London).
