4 Broadway Shows I'm Dying to See in 2020

January 6, 2020 New York, NY, USA

Going into 2019, I sarcastically wrote "see all the shows" as my resolution...and promptly forgot about it. It was only when We got back together for NYE 2020 that I saw the things I'd written in jest the year before and realized...hey! I did it!

In 2019, I saw 30 shows.

I'm not loaded, I promise. Some shows were from a season subscription while others were free press tickets, a Broadway trip I won, or discounted Goldstar tickets.

It was a great year for theatre and while I don't know that I can top that count in 2020, I do expect it will be another great year.

Lots of new shows and revivals alike are lined up for their Broadway opening this year, and 4 in particular have caught my eye:

(Pro tip: go in spring just before the Tony's. Most shows will be open and you won't have to worry about ticket prices surging or shows closing after all the publicity)

Jagged Little Pill

Are you a true 90's kid if you aren't obsessed with this album? This is a jukebox musical featuring an original storyline with the music of Alanis Morissette, mostly from the titular album.  I've been stalking this show since it's pre-Broadway run in Boston. It opened in December, and I can't wait!


I was only 10 when Princess Diana lost her life and knew little of her. I'm excited to see her story on stage. Will this be gone in a season or the new Evita?

An added perk for me is the participation of director Christopher Ashley who directed my all-time favorite show, Come From Away!


This show was a smash on the West End and it's making its way stateside in 2020. It's a modern retelling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII with a pop twist, and exactly the type of creativity I've been yearning for more of on Broadway.

While movie adaptations and jukebox scores have their place and can be amazing, one can only take so many at a time!

The Music Man

One of two revivals on my list, how can you possibly say no to a fun, classic show that features Hugh Jackman as the lead?

While I'm bummed that this show is forcing successful fan favorite Beetlejuice out of it's home theatre, I don't think that will be enough to discourage fans of the musical or Jackman from seeing this anticipated revival!

  1. I've yet to see a musical live on Broadway and it's something on my bucket list. Maybe 2020 will be the year!
