Broadway's greatest annual honors, the Tony Awards, reflect the industry's opinions on the best Broadway shows of the season. Many of the winners, especially those that have won Best Musical, wind up playing for years or even decades afterward. (We’re looking at you, The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago.) If you’re eager to see some of the best Tony Award performances performed live on stage, here is a list of all the shows currently playing on Broadway that have won Tonys for Best Musical, Best Revival of a Musical, Best Play or Best Revival of a Play.

Hamilton

5 out of 5 stars
Theater Musicals
Open run

Composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda forges a groundbreaking bridge between hip-hop and musical storytelling with this sublime collision of radio-ready beats and an inspiring immigrant slant on Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. A brilliant, diverse cast takes back American history and makes it new.

The Book of Mormon

5 out of 5 stars
Theater Musicals Eugene O'Neill Theatre, Midtown West
Open run
This gleefully obscene and subversive satire is pure heaven for those who love tweaking religion but can also enjoy a well-crafted musical. Writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park) and Robert Lopez (Avenue Q) find the perfect blend of sweet and nasty for this tale of mismatched Mormon proselytizers in Uganda.

The Phantom of the Opera

3 out of 5 stars
Theater Musicals Majestic Theatre, Midtown West
Open run
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic, bombastic musical goes on. Directed by Harold Prince, The Phantom of the Opera is lavish and engaging enough to draw tourists more than two decades into its run. Although the score often strikes a cheesy 1980s synth-pop note, the spectacle and romance remain more or less intact. James Barbour currently plays the Phantom.

Chicago

3 out of 5 stars
Theater Musicals Ambassador Theatre, Midtown West
Open run
This John Kander–Fred Ebb–Bob Fosse favorite, revived by director Walter Bobbie and choreographer Ann Reinking, tells the saga of chorus girl Roxie Hart, who murders her lover and, with the help of a huckster lawyer, becomes a vaudeville star.

"I'll understand if I'm not your kind of woman," sings Rachel Bay Jones as Catherine in Pippin. "Anyone can make one terrible mistake." Let us therefore, however grudgingly, give the same latitude to the Tony Awards this year for the single most egregious oversight in the 2012–13 nominations...

Every year, the race for Tony Awards in play-acting categories is always a fascinating study in contrasts. Is hard-hitting drama more deserving than daffy comedy? Does the size of the role matter? How much does celebrity—or lack therof—affect the contest?
