With Tony nominations coming soon, it’s a good time to review the new musicals from the 2015-2016 season.

Which of your favorites will pick up the most nominations? Here's a look at this season’s new Broadway musicals.

In Amazing Grace, Josh Young led the cast as a slave trader who grew beyond the bounds of his upbringing to create the world-renowned hymn that gives the show its title.

Hamilton. There isn't much more that can be said. Who would have guessed that a hip hop driven show about American founding fathers would be become an instant classic? Lin-Manuel Miranda has created a Broadway sensation with more crossover appeal than any show in a generation.

On Your Feet! tells the true story of Miami native and Latin pop superstar Gloria Estefan and features her biggest hits. Ana Villafañe, a star in her own right, steals in the show.

Allegiance is based on the experiences that George Takei lived through when his family was forced into a Japanese internment camp during World War II.

School of Rock – The Musical puts energetic funnyman Alex Brightman in the role that Jack Black made famous in Richard Linklater's 2003 film. The show’s Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater rock songs are played by a band comprised of kids!

Disaster! lampoons the over-the-top flicks of the 1970s that featured airplane crashes, towering infernos, massive earthquakes, shark attacks and all manner of deadly mayhem.

Bright Star features bluegrass and American roots music from Steve Martin and Edie Brickell and was inspired by a true story of a baby who survived being thrown from a train in a suitcase.

American Psycho takes the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel from the page to the stage and features more blood and ripped abs than you can shake a stick (or bone-white business card) at.

Waitress features songs by pop singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles and stars Jessie Mueller as a unhappily married woman who is inspired to seek out a new life when she discovers she is pregnant.

Tuck Everlasting is based on the 1975 kid-lit novel of the same name and features songs by Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen in their first Broadway show.


It was recently announced that Shuffle Along will be eligible as a new musical. The production, as of yet, has not released footage.
