THE TIME OUT FAVORITE
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Visually stunning, emotionally gripping and totally unique on Broadway, this stage version of the bestselling novel has to be seen to be believed. Good for adults and teens.
The producers posted a March 1 closing notice, so don’t wait to catch Ayad Akhtar’s smart and probing study of tribal pride amongst Manhattan’s elite.
THE AMERICAN CLASSIC
You Can’t Take It with You
The delightful Anna Chlumsky (Veep) and veteran showman Richard Thomas just joined the cast of this splendidly funny revival for its final weeks; we bet they only add to the Kaufman & Hart hilarity.
THE ICONIC SHOW TO SEE, ALREADY
The Phantom of the Opera
Yes, you might find its bombastic ’80s score a trifle cheesy (enough with the synth, Lloyd Webber!) but c’mon: You have to see Phantom some time. Norm Lewis (Scandal) is the current owner of the mask.
THE PERFORMANCE YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS
Beautiful—The Carole King Musical
If you haven’t seen the luminous, Tony-winning Jessie Mueller as sweet, soulful pop genius Carole King, you have till March 6, when she leaves.
