Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Why See Candide?

One Night Only

A flurry of stars including John Lithgow, Patrica Racette, Erin Morley and Paul Appleby join the Orchestra of St. Lukes for a one night only benefit concert of Bernstein's vivacious Candide, in celebration of the legendary composer's centenary. A biting satire adapted from Voltaire's novella, Candide is a rollicking adventure following one man's quest to find the best of all possible worlds.

Known for its clever fusion of Broadway pizazz and operatic flair and including the shining standards 'Glitter and Be Gay' and 'Make Our Garden Grow' among many more, it is a cherished classic that continues to dazzle audiences over six decades from when it first premiered!
