Broadway Shows in June – Reviews

Marvin’s Room

Marvin’s Room is one of the exciting new Broadway shows in June 2017. The show follows two estranged sisters, Lee and Bessie, who never quite got along. While Lee struggles with life as a single mom to a particularly troublesome son, Bessie also has her hands full. She cares for their geriatric father and his soap opera-obsessed sister. However, the sisters have to rally together and reunite after almost two decades when Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia. Can they help one another and see eye to eye while they still have time? The show is a touching addition to Broadway this season.

1984

After playing successfully in the UK, 1984 is opening amongst Broadway shows in June. Telling the story of the wildly successful dystopian tale by George Orwell, it should certainly be a Broadway success. The show tells of the tyrannical ruling of a party that blocks individualism and independent thinking. This is all overseen by the ever-watching Big Brother. 1984 is still studied in classrooms around the world today and often speaks to modern discourse on government and rulers.  The play was critically acclaimed in the UK and seems to be on track for another great run in New York.

Sunset Boulevard

The fantastic Sunset Boulevard is sadly closing in June 2017 after a brilliant Broadway run. It should certainly be one of the most popular Broadway shows in June. Starring the inimitable Glenn Close, Sunset Boulevard follows fading Hollywood actress Norma Desmond. Norma desperately wants to find fame again and seems to survive only by reading her adoring fan mail. Close is stunning in the lead role and performs with gusto. Additionally, there are rousing musical pieces to keep the momentum going in this beautiful production. Broadway fans should make sure to see Sunset Boulevard before it ends its Broadway run in June.

Waitress

Waitress is a sweet musical following Jenna, a sympathetic Southern waitress. The story was already popular in its 2007 film adaptation, and now it has made its way to Broadway. Jenna finds herself pregnant and trapped in a relationship with Earl, a moody layabout who doesn’t appreciate her. It seems that she may be doomed until an unlikely new face enters her life. She begins creatively naming her pies and developing a relationship with this new love interest. This sweet story is also uplifted by the jaunty soundtrack by musician Sara Bareilles.

On Your Feet

Fans of Latin music will adore On Your Feet, which tells the life story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan. Musical Broadway shows in June will have a hard time measuring up to this stonker! On Your Feet is energetic and uplifting, exploring the Estefans’ love for one another and belief in the American Dream. Above all, of course, the pair were committed to creating music that could be enjoyed all around the world. On Your Feet combines a compelling true story with some of Emilio and Gloria’s greatest hits. Indeed, audiences will be bopping along to the catchy songs from the moment the curtain rises!

Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen is a funny and touching musical about social anxiety and the allure of popularity. The show follows its title character, Evan, a socially anxious and unpopular high schooler. As recommended by his therapist, Evan writes himself a letter about how this new school year might be better. The letter ends up changing his life, although not in the way his therapist intended! Through a series of missteps, Evan finds himself embroiled in another family’s tragedy with an unlikely route to sudden popularity. With humor and heart, the show explores his inner and outer journeys from social invisibility to acceptance. If you’re looking for a mixture of laughs, music, and heart, you’ll adore Dear Evan Hansen.

– Broadway is the perfect place to go when you’ve had enough of Central Park. When the summer days are so long, why not spend some time seeing a Broadway show? From new releases to old classics, there’s a vibrant selection of Broadway shows in June 2017.

    Duration: 2 hours 45 minutes (1 intermission)
    Starring: Jennifer DiNoia, Kara Lindsay, Michael Campayno
    Wicked celebrated its tenth anniversary on Broadway.

    A typical performance runs for approximately two hours and 30 minutes, plus a 15-minute intermission.

    Wicked is as Wicked does, and after ten years on the stage, Wicked is doing better than ever on Broadway! If you’ve ever wondered if the witches in the Wizard of Oz had a back story, this is the show for you.

    With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and story by Winnie Holzman, Wicked has been raking in Tony Awards since its Broadway debut in 2003 and has developed a fan base that borders on fanaticism. No matter which performance you choose, you’ll find yourself in the company of many theatre goers who know the words to all the wonderful songs. Chances are you won’t be able to get the words of “No One Mourns the Wicked” out of your head for weeks after you leave the theatre.

    Theater: Richard Rodgers Theatre
    Duration: 2 hours 55 minutes (one intermission)
    Starring: Javier Muñoz, Brandon Victor Dixon, Lexi Lawson

    Cast:

    Alexander Hamilton – Michael Luwoye
    Aaron Burr – Daniel Breaker
    Eliza Hamilton – Lexi Lawson
    Angelica Schuyler – Mandy Gonzalez

    John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton – Anthony Lee Medina
    Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds – Alysha Deslorieux
    Hercules Mulligan/James Madison – J. Quinton Johnson

    As unlikely as it seemed when it debuted on Broadway, Hamilton manages to bring American history to life in song and music and audiences can’t get enough of it. In less than a year, Hamilton became the most talked about musical on Broadway, packing the house and filling the front row seats with celebrities and, on occasion, President Obama, who gave the cast a standing ovation. This mash-up of hip-hop and history entrances even those who were bored witless in school when the teacher droned on about the Revolutionary War or American history. A real American drama, it is the story of a man who would become George Washington’s Secretary of State and one of the Founding Fathers who helped frame the U.S. Constitution.

    Theater: Eugene O’Neill Theatre
    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes (1 intermission)
    Starring: Nic Rouleau, Christopher John O’Neill, Kim Exum

    The Eugene O’Neill Theatre is a Broadway theatre located at 230 West 49th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

    The Book of Mormon is a hugely successful musical written by South Park creators Trey Park and Matt Stone. The music is co-created with Robert Lopez who previously worked on the off-Broadway success Avenue Q. It is a raunchy, risqué, and all around hilarious musical that will have you in stitches from start to finish. The show follows two young Mormon missionaries who decamp to Uganda in an attempt to convert the locals. They quickly find that there are far more pressing issues to be dealt with, such as AIDS and poverty. The Book of Mormon is one of the best Broadway shows in June, but it’s not for the faint-hearted. However, fans of risqué comedy will adore this critically acclaimed theatrical romp.
