It is possible to look at this question in a variety of ways. Certainly each individual may have their own personal preferences. However, there is data published weekly that shows factors such as which shows are selling out on Broadway, the average ticket price, what percentage of the venue is filled up to capacity, and if the show is even selling out plus selling standing room only seats.
Based on these factors, the shows on Broadway that are currently the hottest selling tickets are the following:
There are other shows playing on Broadway as well, and they are also wonderful shows. The shows above have the highest ratings across the board from the factors described above.
The Book of Mormon
One of the biggest challenges to creating a Broadway musical based on the Book of Mormon is finding a decent enough actor to play the part of Lehi. While most actors would rather take the role of someone far less interesting, Tony Awards nominee Luke Kirby has no such qualms about portraying Lehi’s son Nephi. The Book of Mormon is a great story and one of the best parts of the Book of Mormon is that it contains a truly interesting and relevant message. So why shouldn’t you take a chance on casting Luke Kirby in your own musical?
Not long ago, Luke Kirby had just finished filming a Broadway musical called Anything Goes. In this production he played an American Indian hunter who is engaged in a battle with a white girl. His storyline was pretty typical and he was essentially attempting to protect his Native American tribe from a rival tribe. Unfortunately, for Luke Kirby, his daughter saw the movie and came to him asking for advice on how to get her boyfriend back. Apparently, this young lady was a Mormon. Luke Kirby was impressed with her for taking the time to call him after the movie and not calling before.
Luke Kirby is now very excited about his new role as Lehi in the Book of Mormon. He wants to prove that he is a good role model for young girls and encourage their faith. I have to admit that I am a little bit jealous of Lehi’s happy-go-lucky attitude. So, if you want to add a little something for my daughter, read some of the Book of Mormon and you’ll be surprised at how well Luke Kirby does at playing a likable and inspirational Native American. the Book of Mormon is seen live at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway in New York City.

The film was the creation of the legendary animator and director, Tim Burton. The script was adapted by New York based writer and producer Lee Eisenberg. Tim Burton has also received rave reviews for his movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. The whole concept of the Disney film was conceived by the Disney Company’s president and CEO, Michael Eisner. There is a popular saying that The Walt Disney Company is synonymous with “quality.” The Walt Disney Company does not only produce quality products, they are also incredibly creative in thinking of ways to deliver quality to consumers. Aladdin is a superb example of this.
The theatrical production that debuted at the New York City’s renowned Lincoln Center Theater has proven itself to be highly popular among the global level of audiences. It is a wonderful testament to the effort that Disney put into this film. If you’ve never seen the film, you really should do so. It’s definitely one of the best movies of the year. You may ask why you should watch it. Well, if you have kids or you just love to see some of the best animated movies ever made, then you’ll surely enjoy this one.
