Tony Shalhoub in The Band's Visit
Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly!
“This show belongs to the Divine Miss M.,” EW’s Maya Stanton writes in her straight-A review of the revival. “It’s a performance only a diva could give.” If you need further convincing: Midler won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for this part.

John Leguizamo in Latin History For Morons
The Bloodline star delivers a wonderful performance with plenty of emotional weight in this one-man show which, EW’s David Canfield notes in his review, “features the performer as a version of himself, revising the way American history is typically taught to elevate the heroes of his own ethnic background, and to give his son the chance to feel pride in where and what he comes from.”

Amy Schumer, Keegan-Michael Key, and Laura Benanti in Meteor Shower
Jason Alexander in The Portuguese Kid
Elizabeth McGovern and Anna Camp in Time and the Conways
Jason Mraz in Waitress
The singer recently joined the delicious Broadway hit as Dr. Pomatter — but it’s not his first experience with Sara Bareilles’s material. When Waitress composer Bareilles recorded her own album of the songs, What’s Inside: Songs from Waitress, Mraz joined her on the duets “Bad Idea” and “You Matter to Me.”

Clive Owen in M. Butterfly
Owen, as EW’s Allison Adato writes in her review, “brings London stage chops and matinee idol polish” to his role as Rene Gallimard, a French diplomat ruined by a complicated affair with a Chinese opera singer (and, it turns out, a spy) in this revival of David Henry Hwang’s play — with a script updated by the playwright himself.
