From Andy Blankenbuehler, the Tony Award-winning choreographer of Hamilton and Broadway's hottest new director-choreographer, comes Bandstand -- the new musical that explodes with some of the most high-octane, heart-stopping and best dancing on stage today. It's 1945. As America's soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer and songwriter, returns to rebuild his life with only the shirt on his back and a dream in his heart. When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation's next great musical superstars, inspiration strikes! Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, each an astonishing musician. Together, they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. Along the way, they discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice and finally feel like they have a place to call home. See Bandstand on Broadway at Bernard B Jacobs Theatre in New York City.

In February 1923, audiences witnessed Broadway's first lesbian kiss at the English-language premiere of God of Vengeance, a play by Yiddish writer Sholem Asch. Days later, the NYPD Vice Squad arrested and prosecuted the entire cast on obscenity charges. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) turned this true story into an acclaimed off-Broadway production. And now, after a 40-year career, she'll make her Broadway debut when it comes to the Cort Theater with the celebrated Off-Broadway cast, including stars Katrina Lenk (Once) and Adina Verson (Him). Timely for its depiction of the challenges faced by new American immigrants and hailed for its klezmer-inspired original score, Indecent was named a Critics' Pick by The New York Times, which called it "a superbly realized, remarkably powerful new play."

Pioneering modernist artist Georgia O'Keeffe was as much her fashion as she was her art -- Her iconic, slick androgynous style made a bold statement in what was once a male-dominated field, helping O'Keeffe communicate power and presence. The Brooklyn Museum's A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism takes a look at selected portraits of O'Keeffe's enlarged florals, New Mexico landscapes and New York skyscrapers, but alongside pieces of her actual clothing. The Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern exhibit will interplay these two mediums to truly understand how the Mother of American Modernism used her identity to further define her artistic values.

Three-time Tony Award nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony Award winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit) star as some of the most unforgettable characters in the theater canon in Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes. In a post-Civil War Southern community, Regina Hubbard Giddens and her family can only be described as ravenous, with an uncanny ability to manipulate each other in ways that rival the mega-corporations of today. Driven by insatiable greed, the Hubbards will steal, plot and sacrifice all family ties as they attempt to invest in one of the first cotton mills to industrialize the New South. Reputedly based on Hellman's real-life family, The Little Foxes is a cynical yet powerful drama of deadly ambition and revenge. Tony Winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) directs this modern classic at New York's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Comedy trailblazer Janeane Garofalo, Emmy-winning actress Lili Taylor and Tony-nominated theater and screen veteran Celia Weston star in the Broadway premiere of Marvin's Room, Scott McPherson's award-winning, wildly funny play about the laughter that can shine through life's darkest moments. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son Hank. Her estranged sister Bessie has her hands full with their elderly father, his soap opera-obsessed sister -- and a brand-new life-or-death diagnosis. Now the women are about to reunite for the first time in 18 years. Can these almost-strangers become a family in time to make plans, make amends and maybe make a trip to Disney World? Marvin's Room explores an unsentimental reality with hope, compassion and a dose of wonderfully absurd humor. Watch the family bonds get put to the test when Anne Kauffman directs this Roundabout Theatre Company production at New York's American Airlines Theatre.

Don't worry if you can't get a seat close to saxophonist Peter Valera. When he is busy blowing the blues, Valera is liable to leap off the stage and wade into the crowd, moving as fast as the music pouring out of his horn.

Backed by the soulful Jump Blues Band, Valera doesn't so much play the saxophone as let it sing, unleashing a range of emotions and experiences too rich and wonderful for mere words to convey. Experience it yourself when this remarkable musician -- who just released his first record Jump Blues -- heats things up at Lucille's Grill at B.B. King Blues Club.

For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily "a listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to both '60s girl group The Supremes and the beloved musical Dreamgirls its almost surreal accuracy. For Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them -- something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music.
