On and Off Broadway: Our Favorite New Shows

Courtesy of the Corner Shop

Two new performances to add to your calendar this year.

ON: England’s most gripping chapter of political intrigue comes alive in Wolf Hall, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s muscular adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s prize-winning bestsellers about Henry VIII. The West End success, a two-part tour de force, comes to Broadway’s Winter Garden Theater on March 20.
At 1634 Broadway; wolfhallbroadway.com.

OFF: For his musical In the Heights in the mid-2000s, Lin-Manuel Miranda used rap and salsa as the basis for an unlikely Broadway hit. He’ll take a similarly unorthodox approach to the picaresque story of the first secretary of the treasury in the highly anticipated Hamilton, opening January 20 at New York’s Public Theater.
At 425 Lafayette St.; publictheater.org.
