Broadway Shows in May 2025

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-winning musical MJ, which explores the creative drive behind the King of Pop Michael Jackson, with many more shows to be announced and available to book soon. 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.
