Theater: What to Watch Before Winter is Over

While spring may be the busiest time in the world of New York theater, this winter has provided stage-lovers with plenty to see. 

Three major star-powered Broadway revivals opened in January, and there are a handful of off-Broadway performances worth note.

Adam Feldman, theater critic with Time Out New York, says for a great night of musical theater, you can't do much better than some of the city's cabaret shows.

"I think of them often as theatrical one-man shows," he said. "The newest place in town is very theatrically oriented. It's called 54 below, it's downstairs from the old  Studio 54, and this month, mid- February, Patti LuPone is going to be there for 2 weeks."

Elisabeth Vincentelli, theater critic with the New York Post, says one show to catch before it closes is the musical Annie. "I think Annie is often taken for granted, you know, the cute show with the orphan, but this one is really beautiful production, it's really elegant" she said.
