What to See Next - as of August 8, 2018

Show-Score | Aug 8, 2018

We're keeping track of everything new and notable on Broadway and Beyond, so you don't have to. 

Beyond Broadway

      • Wrapping up a remarkable 17-month Off-Broadway run this month with a ShowScore of 83 is master illusionist Derek DelGaudio’s “In & Of Itself.” A mix of storytelling and magic, it offers heady delights as it explores the nature of identity itself.


      • Only two weeks left to catch Anika Noni Rose burning up the stage in “Carmen Jones” at CSC. Brantley called it “smashingly effective,” and with a ShowScore of 87, our users clearly agree. Aside from a final benefit performance, the show is sold out through the remainder of its run, but rush tix are available. 


      • If sheer spectacle is what you fancy, look no further than HERE Arts Center, where legendary puppeteer Basil Twist is reviving his “Symphonie Fantastique,” a wondrous melange made of very eclectic ingredients: abstract puppetry, a virtuosic pianist, and a 1,000 gallon water tank.


      Broadway

        • Even the nicest clambakes have to end. “Carousel” announced that it will be closing September 16. If you haven’t seen the Tony-nominated revival yet—or want to take one last ride—go ahead and snag those last few tickets. 



        • New show alert! “Network,” starring Bryan Cranston, just announced that it will be coming to Broadway in late 2019. It’s hopping across the pond from an award-winning run in London and has a strictly limited engagement. Oh, and it’s directed by none other than Ivo Van Hove.


         Stay tuned for next week's recommendations of what to see on Broadway and Beyond!
