David Cote's best bets in 2013
Matilda the Musical
Not since Billy Elliot has an English musical been so hyped. We look forward to Tim Minchin’s score for this tale of a telekinetic kid, based on the Roald Dahl novel.
Red-hot Tarell Alvin McCraney sets his latest piece in an all-black, all-male prep school, where one student is driven to make his choir the best. Sounds like Glee with gospel tunes.
Adam Feldman's best bets in 2013
Billy Porter and Annaleigh Ashford in a musical by Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein? Sounds like a total gay kick.
Rising star playwright Amy Herzog (4000 Miles) is set to light up New York Theatre Workshop this spring with the tale of an unstable young couple in Paris.
