Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The theater season starts warming up in March and really gets hot in April, as many of the best Broadway shows jockey to open in time to be considered for Tony Awards. Between now and then, 18 productions are scheduled to open on the Great White Way, including four transfers from recent Off Broadway runs. Along with new plays and musicals, the 2020 spring crop on Broadway features a healthy number of revivals (including two musicals co-written by Stephen Sondheim) and performances by stars including Laurie Metcalf, Patti LuPone, Mary-Louise Parker, Armie Hammer and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. It's impossible to predict which of these 18 shows will turn out to be the most rewarding—and we're always happy to be surprised!—but here are the nine shows we're currently most excited about, listed in order of when they begin.
