Michael Urie and Mercedes Ruehl star in Harvey Fierstein's iconic Torch Song. Hilarious and heart-wrenching, the story follows Arnold Beckoff's odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit. But a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect. Join Arnold on this all-too-human journey about the families we're born into, the families we choose and the we fight battles to bring them all home. After a smash-hit run off-Broadway, the Tony-winning play heads to the Hayes Theater.

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical

Buy Tickets $49 - $99 $49 - $119

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. It's no surprise that Beautiful -- The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. See this unforgettable show at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.

A Raisin in the Sun: Groundbreaking Classic Still Packs a Punch

Buy Tickets $5 - $15 $15 - $30

The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever. First produced in 1959 and adapted two years later into a now-classic film starring Sidney Poitier, A Raisin in the Sun is as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the limited return of this incredible story to their stage -- a story that follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a "white" neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers' many dreams. Three generations each yearn for different versions of a better life -- whether it's a business, or a spouse, or the right to live with long-denied dignity.

Now back in New York after a successful international tour, The Screwtape Letters is a provocative and "wickedly witty" (Wall Street Journal) theatrical adaptation of C.S.

Set in a remarkably stylish office in the depths of hell, the show centers on a senior demon named Screwtape -- played by acclaimed actor Brent Harris -- who also happens to be Satan's top psychiatrist. Earthly notions of morality get turned upside down as human souls are enticed to join "Our Father Below." “The Devil has rarely been given his due more perceptively,” said The New York Times, while The New Yorker calls it "a fine, funny, thoughtful production."

Although his parents were not together, his father, noted jazz musician Abdul Wadud, was an influence as well. “Music was just always around me”, says DeVaughn. “I can remember at a very young age, standing in my mother’s living room, listening to music and saying to myself, ‘I’m going to be an entertainer.’ It was that simple for me. I think I just always knew.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda, a guy who knows a little something about Broadway, says Mike Birbiglia's The New One is "as perfect a night as you're gonna get." And The New York Times says it's, "Genius. Sublime. Birbiglia is a seductive force ..." But in case you need more reasons to check out the comic's most recent collection of autobiographical musings, the show's gotten great reviews and is now at the Cort Theatre after a successful Off-Broadway run. Birbiglia's an award-winning monologist (Sleepwalk with Me, Thank God for Jokes) whose latest explores the appeal of sofas and the challenges of becoming a dad. And if he looks somewhat familiar, it's because he's also an in-demand actor with notable roles on Orange Is the New Black and Billions.

You'll also hear about some of the club owners and entertainers who earned millions and kept the alcohol flowing and the parties rolling right under the authorities' noses. Get the scoop on the playboy mayor of the late '20s, Jimmy Walker, and how his laissez-faire attitude made him known as the Night Mayor, and pay a visit to what might be the most famous speakeasy of them all.

Black Angels Over Tuskegee: A Story of Courage and Patriotism

Buy Tickets $29 $39.50

There are more World War II stories than you can count, but Black Angels Over Tuskegee tells a story you won't see in most of them. It's the ultimate underdog tale, the journey of six trailblazing black men who want to fly. At the time, the military was segregated, and the brave black pilots and their support team that became known as the Tuskegee Airmen faced not only the dangers of war but also racial discrimination from within and outside the military. Black Angels Over Tuskegee, now at St. Luke's Theatre, tells the true story of six men attempting to become Tuskegee Airmen. The play explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow laws, their intelligence, their patriotism, their dreams of an inclusive fair society and the brotherhood they found in each other as they persevered -- and excelled -- in the face of the enormous obstacles acting against them.
