Time Out says

The ghost of late, great producer David Belasco supposedly haunts this 1,016-seat house, built in 1907. We've never seen the specter—no doubt clad in priestly garb, as Belasco was wont to do—but we'll take theater folks' word for it. In 1935, the elegant playhouse was home to Clifford Odets's breakthrough drama Awake and Sing! It served as an NBC radio playhouse from 1949 to '53 but then returned to live fare. Over the decades, it has housed the scandalous sex-themed hit Oh! Calcutta!, a sterling revival of August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone in 2009, which President Obama attended with the First Lady, and the recent Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

How to Dance in Ohio

  • Musicals
  • Open run

Seven autistic actors star in an inspirational new musical adapted from Alexandra Shiva's 2015 documentary, which tracks a group of young people on the spectrum as they prepare for a formal dance thrown by a counseling center in Columbus. Sammi Cannold, who directed the show's well-received premiere at Syracuse Stage last year, helms the Broadway transfer; the music is by Jacob Yandura, and the book and lyrics are by Rebekah Greer Melocik.
