The Griswolds‚Äô have been to Wally World, they‚Äôve visited family for Christmas, and they‚Äôve nearly destroyed Europe on their vacations. And now, they‚Äôve loaded up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster and are hitting Broadway in the new musical at the 5th Avenue Theatre, ‚ÄúThe Griswolds‚Äô Broadway Vacation‚ÄĚ. Are the Griswolds ready for Broadway? No. And by the Griswolds‚Äô I mean the characters as well as this show. But just like the Griswolds the show does grow and with a little bit of work (or a lot of work) they and it just might make it on the Great White Way.
