SYNOPSIS: After being delayed by the pandemic in 2022 after a buzzy Chicago run at the Shakespeare Theater, the musical adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks romance novel and iconic 2004 romance film starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams is finally coming to Broadway. The new version of this much-loved tale jumps through time to tell the story of the enduring love between the characters Allie and Noah. In the live show, different actors play the various versions of Allie and Noah through time and this adaptation takes place not during the 1940s but in the 1970s. Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson penned the music and lyrics and the book is by Bekah Brunstetter from TV series “This Is Us.” But most importantly, yes, they make it rain on stage.

WHERE: Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre

VARIETY REVIEW: “The huge fanbase of the romance novel and the 2004 hit film might initially boost the box office, but it will take more than recreating that iconic rainstorm to win over other theatergoers looking for more than clichés, tropes and triggers.”

SYNOPSIS: Another book to movie to Broadway production. Based on the historical novel by Sara Gruen that was later turned into a Hollywood feature starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattison, the musical stars Grant Gustin (“The Flash”) and Isabelle McCalla (“Aladdin” and “The Prom”). Set during the Great Depression, the story follows veterinary student Jacob Jankowski (Gustin) who winds up as an animal caretaker at a traveling circus.

Each night, 17-year-old Ali (Maleah Joi Moon) shares a meal with her mother, Jersey (Shoshana Bean), in their Hell’s Kitchen apartment. This nightly ritual, insisted upon by Jersey, is meant to shield Ali from the dangers of 1990s New York City. But despite the protective dinners and warnings, Ali yearns to break free and experience the world, love, art and more. The show features several Keys chart-toppers including “Fallin,” “If I Ain’t Got You,” “No One,” “Girl on Fire” and three new songs.

WHERE: The Public Theater

VARIETY REVIEW: “The minimalism of the stage and Ali’s earnest narration make the viewers feel a part of the production rather than just spectators. In addition to Moon and Bean’s sensational vocal range, ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ illustrates how tender mother/daughter relationships can be.”
