Directed by Bill T. Jones and co-produced by Jay-Z and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, 'Fela!' is one of Broadway's most raved about musicals. Based on the life of Afrobeat music pioneer and activist Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, the musical has not one but two tour de force performances from both Sahr Ngaujah, who originated the role of Fela when it was off-Broadway, and Kevin Mambo, who shares the role with Ngaujah.

Fences
Directed by Kenny Leon, this Broadway revival of August Wilson's 'Fences' stars two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Viola Davis in a story set in 1950s Pittsburgh. The drama follows Troy Maxson (Washington), a former baseball player in the Negro League, who is now reduced to collecting trash. Troy must deal with his headstrong football-player son who has a chance to go much further than he did, as well as his wife, Rose (Davis), who re-evaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with the baby he fathered with another woman. Early word is that Washington is a shoo-in for a Tony Award.

Hair
The musical that created history by bringing rock and roll to the theatrical stage, 'Hair' defines the '60s generation by examining a group of young adults struggling for generational and personal identity in the throws of the Vietnam War.

Corbin Bleu from 'High School Musical' is currently in the cast.

Memphis
'Memphis' is a musical about a music-loving mixed-race couple struggling to survive during the early civil rights era. The show puts on plenty of gospel, R&B, rock and soul to tell the story of a white radio DJ and the black singer who becomes his muse in the segregated South of the 1950s. 'Memphis' stars Chad Kimball as DJ Huey Calhoun, with Montego Glover as singer Felicia Farrell.

The 10 Shows To See On Broadway This Season

Race
Acclaimed playwright and Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet's latest Broadway play, 'Race,' is a new production that stars Emmy winner James Spader, David Alan Grier, Kerry Washington and Richard Thomas.
