Broadway is best known for its musicals. From The Lion King to Chicago to The Phantom of the Opera, Broadway musicals make up some of the longest-running shows in New York history and attract audiences from all over the world. But every long-running, world-famous, award-winning musical once began as a fresh new musical on Broadway for the first time. New Broadway musicals are just as important to the theatre landscape — they showcase talented new writers, tell new stories, and soon become the frontrunners for each year's Tony Awards.

There are plenty of new musicals in New York this fall, and you can be one of the first people to see them on Broadway by getting tickets now. There's a musical for everyone's taste, whether you like pop, rock, K-pop, or jazz music; whether you want to hear original songs or the greatest hits of a beloved songwriter; whether you want a classic flair, a contemporary one, or both at once. Check out the new Broadway musicals this fall, and get your tickets now.

Sunset Boulevard

Fresh off an acclaimed London premiere, Sunset Boulevard starring Nicole Scherzinger is getting its close-up in New York. The Pussycat Dolls star now plays the celebrated role of Norma Desmond, a once-beloved actress who goes to unthinkable lengths to avoid the reality that her star is fading.

A Wonderful World: The Louis Armstrong Musical

Relive the iconic music of Louis Armstrong at this new musical, which features hits like "A Wonderful World," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "La Vie En Rose," and more.
