Three to See: June

June 2nd, 2016 Comments off

There’s a hush that’s fallen upon Broadway this summer as a number of this year’s musicals have shuttered (so long, Tuck Everlasting, American Psycho, and the soon-to-close Finding Neverland). But there’s still plenty to see this month and we’re casting our net beyond the Great White Way to showcase new and noteworthy productions worth seeking out.

Shakespeare in the Park is back, this time with an all-female production of one of the Bard’s classics. Tony nominated director Phyllida Lloyd directs Cush Jumbo, Janet McTeer in a cast of 15 as they reimagine Shakespeare’s original screwball comedy.

There’s nothing quite as iconic in New York City than Radio City Music Hall, and within that legendary venue you’ll find the Radio City Rockettes. This summer’s limited-run production features direction and choreography by Emmy Award winner Mia Michaels and book by Drama Desk Award winner Douglas Carter Beane and promises to showcase the Rockettes as never before.

Broadway Bares XXVI
It’s hard to believe that this sexy fundraiser is already in its mid-twenties. This year’s theme, “On Demand,” promises to deliver the best of Broadway stripped down to, well… practically nothing. Proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
