Flocks of tourists travel to New York City, affectionately known as the Big Apple to some, for the incredible shopping, the historic and cultural attractions, to feel the hustle and bustle of one of the worldâ€™s busiest cities, as well catching a show or two on or off Broadway.
As the highest level of commercial theatre known within North America, Broadway highlights theatrical productions geared towards music lovers; those who enjoy seeing a phenomenal story told; sometimes to mystery fans; as well as some shows that are even geared towards families or Disney enthusiasts. Should you find yourself in and around the NYC area and the Theatre District during your travel adventures, there are a plethora of Broadway performances you can catch, any time of the year.
Still, there are a handful of productions that are here today, and soon to be gone by the end of 2018 as some of the best Broadway shows that enjoyed a successful run that currently winding down to a close.
6. Angels in America
A two-part play that is actually presented separately (and entitled) with the Millennium Approaches and Perestroika respectively, Angels of America is a Broadway production that has won a number of awards including the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
A complex piece of work that mixes in metaphors and examines homosexuality and AIDS in the United States circa the 1980s, this production contains multiple parts for a handful of actors with major and minor characters playing the roles of deceased individuals (i.e. ghosts) or the supernatural (i.e. angels).
Currently starring Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane in the lead roles, those who want to catch this play better get moving, as production closes on July 15 of this year.
