Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
There’s no way to predict the best Broadway shows in any given year, but some rank higher than others on the advance-excitement scale. Among the productions we’re most looking forward to in 2018 are two new musicals based on hit movies, a stage sequel to the Harry Potter books and revivals of classic plays by Tony Kushner, Edward Albee and Eugene O’Neill. Only time and maybe Tony Awards will tell whether these shows live up to the hopes they engender. Meanwhile, here are 10 of the most promising productions headed for the Great White Way, in order of when they start previews. And if you’re serious about original drama, of course, don’t forget to look Off Broadway as well.
