How do you prefer your musicals? Light and funny? Deep and dark? Kooky and weird? This fall on Broadway and off Broadway, there's a new musical for everyone. From historical dramas to teenage coming-of-age tales to musical adaptations of classic and cult classic films, you're guaranteed to find a musical you love in New York.

New Broadway musicals are some of the most exciting parts of the New York theatre season, because they're the competitors for some of the top Tony Awards at the ceremony each June. And new Off-Broadway musicals could someday be classic Broadway musicals. You can check them out while they're still in an intimate venue and brag that you were among the first to experience their greatness. Learn about all the new musicals coming up in New York soon, and get your tickets now.

New Broadway musicals

Long-running Broadway shows are everyone's go-tos, but why not experience a new Broadway musical? You could be seeing the start of a long and prosperous Broadway run. There's a musical to fit everyone's taste, as this season's Broadway musicals feature classic Broadway, pop, rock, and even K-pop music.

& Juliet

If you're a fan of pop songs from the '90s to today, get thee to & Juliet! This new musical combines the hit songs of Swedish pop songwriter Max Martin with Shakespeare. David West Read (a writer on Schitt's Creek) created a new narrative about what if Juliet had survived at the end of Romeo & Juliet. How does Shakespeare fit in with "...Baby One More Time" and "I Want It That Way"? Surprisingly well — the show has been a massive hit in London's West End and was nominated for nine Olivier Awards.

& Juliet is at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre

Almost Famous

This new musical is based on the beloved Cameron Crowe film of the same name, about a young Rolling Stone journalist who shadows a rock and roll band and the colorful characters he meets in the process. Crowe had a close hand in the musical adaptation. He wrote the book and lyrics, and Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (of the Pulitzer-winning musical Next to Normal) wrote the music. The musical has gotten so much positive buzz from its pre-Broadway tryout in San Diego, California, that Crowe even directed a music video for one of the songs in the show.

Almost Famous is at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

Kimberly Akimbo

Kimberly Akimbo first premiered off Broadway in 2021 and was an immediate critical hit and awards darling, with many calling it "the best new musical of the year." That's great praise for a fully original show about a teenage girl with a rare medical condition that makes her looks like a 72-year-old woman. Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire adapted the musical's book from his 2003 play it's based on, and Tony Award winner Jeanine Tesori (of the musical Fun Home) composed the score. Tony Award winner Victoria Clark plays Kimberly, and it's a transformative performance you have to see to believe.

Kimberly Akimbo is at the Booth Theatre.

Jason Kim writes the book, and there are songs by Helen Park and Max Vernon. If you love K-pop music, you'll be humming the new songs from KPOP for days.

Bad Cinderella

Cinderella got a makeover, and not just from a godmother. Bad Cinderella, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a book by Oscar winner Emerald Fennell, gives a facelift to a classic fairytale. In this musical, Cinderella is a loud-mouthed maid who rebels against her town's "perfect," beautiful image — until she changes her look in the hopes of winning love. Along the way, though, she learns inner beauty is much more important.

A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical

If you're a fan of the musician Neil Diamond, or have parents or relatives who are, then head over to A Beautiful Noise. It is about the life and internationally successful career of Diamond and features his hit songs, such as "Sweet Caroline" (try to not sing along!). Broadway star Will Swenson (who was last seen in the hit Off-Broadway revival of Assassins) plays the young Diamond. Expect a joyful, energetic time at A Beautiful Noise.

A Beautiful Noise begins performances at the Broadhurst Theatre on November 2.

Some Like It Hot

Get ready for some laughs at the musical adaptation of Some Like It Hot, considered by many as one of the funniest films of all time (and the film that made Marilyn Monroe a star). The musical is set in the 1920s and is about two men hiding out after witnessing a crime. They pretend to be women in order to escape town with an all-female band. Hijinks ensue. Comedian Amber Ruffin (of The Amber Ruffin Show) co-wrote the book with Matthew López (of the Tony-winning Best Play The Inheritance). Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (of Hairspray) wrote the songs. On top of all that, Tony winner and physical comedian Christian Borle leads the cast alongside J. Harrison Ghee. So expect hearty belly laughs and catchy songs — you can listen to one of them here.

Some Like It Hot begins performances at the Shubert Theatre on November 1.

Shucked

Shucked is a corny new Broadway musical — that is, it's all about corn. A small town is in jeopardy, a couple delays their wedding to save it, and corn is the only thing that brings them and all the townspeople together. Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, who have written music for Reba McIntire, Kacey Musgraves, and more, have teamed up with Tony-winning bookwriter Robert Horn on this ear-pleasing new show.

New York, New York

Be a part of it. New York, New York, titled after Martin Scorsese's 1977 film, is hitting the stage — where else? — in New York come spring. The show, like the film, is set in post-World War II New York, but has an entirely new plot that has yet to be revealed. However, classic Kander and Ebb songs, including the iconic "New York, New York" theme, remain, plus some new tunes by Kander and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Once Upon a One More Time

You'll wanna go to the Marquis Theatre for Once Upon a One More Time come May 2023. Hear the biggest hits of Grammy-winning pop royalty Britney Spears in a new story about classic fairytale princesses — Snow White, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and more — discovering they're stronger than yesterday even without a prince or happily ever after. After you see this fun new musical once, you'll find yourself saying, "Oops, I did it again!"

Back to the Future: The Musical

Go by foot, subway, or time-traveling DeLorean to Back to the Future: The Musical, opening on Broadway in summer 2023. Step into the world of the beloved '80s movie and go back in time with Marty McFly, who almost ruins his parents' first meeting and has to get them back together. In addition to original music, this award-winning musical, which premiered in London, features the movie's famous hits like "Johnny B. Goode" and "The Power of Love."

Titanique

If you're the kind of person who's watched the film Titanic multiple times and debated whether Jack and Rose could have fit on that door, then Titanique is the musical for you. It's a parody of the hit film, retold through the eyes of Celine Dion (hilariously played by Marla Mindelle, the co-writer of Titanique). It also features Dion's hit songs in a campy and loving homage. If you ever wanted to see the characters of Cal and Jack in Titanic do a lip sync battle, take a voyage to Titanique! Learn more about the Titanique cast and why to see the show.

Titanique runs at the Daryl Roth Theatre through February 19.
