I am planning a trip to NYC to see "Spamalot" with my 13 year old son. There are at least 7 other shows I'd like to see (that I think he'd like)...

But I was wondering if anyone here has any 'must-sees' on the current Broadway stage. Any of you have any suggestions?

Hey Suzer - There is a lot of current stuff that I haven't seen, so cannot really comment on. But if he hasn't seen Lion King, that is a must! Also Hairspray, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Producers and Wicked. He should love any of them. Let me know when you are coming!

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was amazing - but it has some "off-color" humor...should be okay for a boy of 13 though. Great cast, and a very funny show (jonathan pryce, norbert leo butz and joanna gleason to name a few.) Spelling bee was awesome too. If your son a big fan of musical theater, The Light in the Piazza has been my favorite of the last few shows i've seen - but it might not be as entertaining for him. I'll keep thinking.... when are you going?

Thanksgiving. "Spelling Bee" has that song, 'M. U. E." which I'm afraid is too close to the truth for a 13 year old...he might die of embarrassment sitting next to his mother!

Anyone seen this recent "Threepenny Opera"? It might not be around still in Nov., but I'm wondering how bawdy it gets.

I think that regardless of the song, Spelling Bee would be okay...he might be embarassed for a minute, but they stage the song with humor. I also agree with Alice that Wicked is amazing!! You could also look into Jersey Boys if you like that kind of music. Three Penny Opera looks crazy - Alan Cummings and Cyndi Lauper!!! - but i'd still like to see it. I would also suggest looking into The Drowsy Chaperone - it just got a ton of nominations for the Tony's, but I don't know a whole lot about it.
