TT: So you want to see a show?

Here's my list of recommended Broadway and off-Broadway shows, updated weekly. In all cases, I gave these shows favorable reviews in The Wall Street Journal when they opened. For more information, click on the title.

Tickets to all of these shows were available at the box office last week.

Because of the recently settled stagehands' strike, many Broadway shows are offering heavily discounted tickets to certain performances. For information, go here.
