Broadway Shows in May 2024

Early summer on Broadway is an exciting time to book a long-running hit musical or a brand new prestige drama. Top picks include Tony Award winner MJ, which explores the creative drive behind the King of Pop Michael Jackson, or heartwrenching drama Mary Jane starring Rachel McAdams. We also recommend looking at shows Off-Broadway in May, when the Lucille Lortel Awards winners are announced at the start of the month. This prestigious ceremony celebrates the best plays and musicals at New York theater’s smaller venues, where shows like Little Shop of Horrors and Titanique are huge crowd pleasers.

As more new shows are announced for the coming season, we also recommend looking at tickets for Broadway shows in June and July.
