Hamilton - There is only one place to begin, and this is with Hamilton, a revolutionary musical that gives a fascinating and incredible salute to America’s immigrants. Offering a great mixture of nimble wit and political passion, which is blended with a use of R&B, hip-hop, and rap makes this show one of a kind. You will struggle to find any negative comments about it online.

Jersey Boys - If you’re from New Jersey, this will, no doubt, already be top of your list. However, no matter where in the world you originate, this is a show that will have you singing along and clapping your hands throughout. The story tells the musical history of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The show is fast-paced and it is almost completely told through music.

The Book of Mormon - Another unique type of show in New York, which is a modern religious satire. It was created by the creators of South Park, which should give you an idea regarding the sort of humor to expect. The show has been a huge success, winning the Tony Award for the Best Musical in 2011, and its popularity has never dwindled since. While it is a funny show, it does tackle some very serious issues, including AIDs, famine, and faith, yet it does it through hilarious songs.

Wicked - Wicked is a great show for the entire family to see while visiting New York. The show is a unique take on The Wizard of Oz, telling the story of Galinda, who is the Good Witch, and of Elphaba, which is the Wicked Witch of the West. You may be wondering where Dorothy is, but this is about before she arrives on the scene. Wicked, the musical, has also won many awards, including a massive ten Tony Awards.
