So I'll be in the city Friday and I'm there until Wednesday and I already have tickets to 2 musicals. I always try to get a play in and I've already seen, Lucky Guy, Vanya and Sonia, and Trip to Bountiful. I would only see Vanya again but I'd prefer to see something new. If anyone has any thoughts that would be great. I'm open to pretty much anything, a Trip to Bountiful I found a little dull but Cicely Tyson kept me interested. Any suggestions would be great!

I saw "Peter And The Starcatcher" Off-Broadway in May and enjoyed it.

I'd second Peter.

Peter and the Star catcher had an amazing design, but the story was really boring and hard to follow along with! I would recommend something else!!

I loved The Assembled Parties, it was easily my second favorite new play of the season after Vanya, but I know many disagree with me on this one. I thought it was funny and heartwarming, and Jessica Hecht and Judith Light are phenomenal. Tickets aren't too hard and to come by and are quite inexpensive since it's MTC.

I really disliked The Nance, but many have liked it, so that's probably an option as well, especially if you're a Nathan Lane fan.

I thought Macbeth with Alan Cumming was exciting and impressive, but it's far from a must see.

Off-Broadway, I know it's not a play, but look into Murder Ballad. I loved it and it's closing in a few weeks.


ETA: If you haven't seen Peter and the Starcatcher, that would definitely be my top choice!

I saw Peter and the Starcatcher 2 times last year while it was on Broadway. I loved it. Probably wouldn't see it a 3rd time though. And actually one of the 2 musicals I have tickets for is Murder Ballad. I'm so excited for it. The assembled parties looks interesting. Probably my top choice now. A lot of plays closed last week so my options are smaller I guess. Thanks for the suggestions so far and any more would be great!
