Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The dog days are upon us and we’re searching for NYC events in August to distract and delight us. No one wants to think about summer being over; we want our vacations (or the best New York staycations) to go on forever. But now is a good time to look back on the first half of the year and take stock. Which titles entered the pantheon of best Broadway shows? Which Tony Award nominees do we still fondly remember? Theater is such an ephemeral art, and none of the shows below are still open (Dear Evan Hansen returns this fall and may well qualify as a best Broadway musical). What would be your pick for best show (so far) in 2016?
