What to see
The Book of Mormon, hilarious as it is, isn’t for everyone—especially if you’re looking to book good seats sometime this decade. Happily, there are a slew of other critically acclaimed shows playing on Broadway and Off, and the one that works best for you depends on, well, you. Bringing kids? Can’t go wrong with Annie, The Lion King or Newsies. Bringing a date? Once, Rock of Ages and The Phantom of the Opera should get you to the next base. Bringing Mom or Dad? Jersey Boys and Pippin are safe bets.
