Every now and then we would like to take some time to give our readers a heads up as to what’s “new” on Broadway. Here are ten upcoming Broadway shows that are scheduled to open on the famed New York thoroughfare.


1. Come From Away

This new musical is set to open for previews at the Schoenfeld Theater on February 18, 2017. The official opening is scheduled for March 12th of this year. Chad Kimball heads the cast, which also includes Jenn Colella, Joel Hatch, Rodney Hicks, and Caesar Samayoa.

The plot surrounds the relationships built between a plane filled with passengers on September 11, 2001. These travelers find themselves rerouted to Gander, Newfoundland with more than six thousand other people who bond in an astonishing situation. Written by Canadian natives Irene Sankoff and David Hein this Broadway show scheduled to open next month is directed by Christopher Ashley.

Ashley and company held the world premiere of this moving musical at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2015 and then moved on for a short run in the Fall of that same year at the Seattle Repertory Theater, where is shattered the box-office ceiling.


2. Sweat

A drama written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage, Sweat, tells the tale of several friends who work together in a factory and, basically, grow up together. Yet, a failing economy, strikes, and layoffs instigates unrest in the close-knit group. By the end friend is fighting friend and some are just doing what they can to get by.

Opening for previews on March 4th at Studio 54, the cast includes Carlo Albán, James Colby, Khris Davis, Johanna Day, John Earl Jelks, Will Pullen, Miriam Shor, Lance Coadie Williams, and Michelle Wilson. This drama, based in a Pennsylvania town when the millennium turned, has been playing sold out shows at their Off-Broadway location, Public Theater. Oregon’s Shakespeare Festival and D.C.’s Arena Stage got together to commission the work from Nottage.


3. Miss Saigon

The next work destined for Broadway soon is one that has already seen success on this famous street. This tale written by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Alain Boublil, and Richard Maltby, Jr. is being directed by Laurence Connor. Jon Jon Briones and Eva Noblezada lead the cast in this legendary story of love lost at war in Vietnam.

1975 is the year and Kim, a young woman who is being introduced into the world of entertaining gentlemen, meets Chris, an American soldier in Vietnam. It is based on a classic opera with the same theme, Madama Butterfly. It is scheduled to open for previews on March 1st at the Broadway Theatre and is set to run until January 15th of next year.


4. Amélie

Opening for previews on March 9th at the Walter Kerr Theatre, this next production headed for Broadway was composed by Dan Messé, who also wrote music to accompany a production of Twelfth Night for Shakespeare in the Park. The unique thing about this is that he did it with his own folk-rock group called Hem. The world premiere of this work was at the Berkeley Rep in August of 2015.

The cast includes Phillipa Soo and Adam Chanler-Berat. This is a retelling of the Audrey Tautou film from 2001 of the same name. It tells the tale of a cautious server who has a crazy dreams.


5. Present Laughter

Next we have a comedy that was first produced in the 1940s. The story surrounds an actor who only thinks of himself. He is in the middle of his life and qualms his own fears with drinking and sleeping around. This actor lives the stereotypical entertainer’s life isn’t aware of what kind of trouble his type of lifestyle can attract.

Starring Kevin Kline, Kate Burton, Kristine Nielsen and Cobie Smulders this work first premiered in the 1940s. Kline has not hit a Broadway stage in ten years, so his return is highly anticipated. This revival is directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, who won a Tony Award for Hand to God.

Present Laughter opens for previews on March 10 at the St. James Theatre for a limited time.


6. The Play That Goes Wrong

Opening for previews at the Lyceum Theatre on March 9th, this tale, written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, tells the tale of a Drama Society determined to put on a spectacular production of a murder mystery. The title indicates the journey and outcome of this endeavor. After three prosperous years performing on London’s West End, the cast will be heading to New York to take over Broadway.

Mark Bell is directing and J.J. Abrams is a vital part of the creative team. Cast members heading over the pond include Matthew Cavendish, Bryony Corrigan, Rob Falconer, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Greg Tannahill, and Nancy Zamit.


7. War Paint

Our next show destined for the Broadway stage is a musical with a plot line that reflects the professional competition in the world of female cosmetics between Helena Rubenstein and Elizabeth Arden. The title roles are played by two Tony winning actresses, Patti LuPone as Rubenstein and Christin Ebersole plays Arden. This show had its previews at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago last year.

The two women who make up the story are giants in the beauty world. It is in their offices where trends, and bar, in beauty is set. Their rivalry forced each to climb higher in an industry that had been previously dominated by men. They didn’t help each other along the way though; they were nothing less than merciless.

War Paint opens for previews on March 7th at the Nederlander Theatre.


8. Oslo

On March 23rd previews for this drama will begin at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Written by J.T. Rogers, this is the story of meetings that happened secretly between Israel and Palestine. It is being transferred to Broadway after it was a hit at its Off-Broadway location.

Starring Jennifer Ehle, Daniel Jenkins, Jefferson Mays, and Daniel Oreskes, this production is directed by Bartlett Sher, who also worked on The King and I and South Pacific.


9. Groundhog Day

Based on the cultish film of the same name starring Bill Murray, this musical adaptation is set to open for previews at the August Wilson Theatre on March 16th. The plot surrounds a sarcastic news reporter who is forced to cover the Groundhog Day festivities in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. While there he is doomed to repeat the day over and over and over again until he learns something about himself.

Tim Minchin and Danny Rubin created the music and lyrics to go along with the story and Andy Karl will be taking on the lead role. Matthew Warchus directs this work, which was staged last summer in London.


10. Indecent

April 4th, at the Cort Theatre, this “play with music” will open for previews with a cast that has yet to be revealed. This is the Broadway debut for Paula Vogel, who is a Pulitzer Prize-winner for How I Learned to Drive. The story surrounds another Broadway production.

The God of Vengeance, which debuted on Broadway in 1923, was seen as an influential piece of Jewish culture, by some that is. Others didn’t see it quite that way, and instead saw it as treasonous slander.
