Looking to take in a show but overwhelmed by the amount of choices? Look no further. "On Stage" host Frank DiLella will be curating a list of “must-see” shows every week, directing you to the best of Broadway, off-Broadway and beyond. Here's his picks for this week.
“Parade” at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre
First up on the Broadway stage, the highly anticipated revival of “Parade” begins previews on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
The musical played to sold-out crowds at City Center in the fall, and is moving to The Main Stem for a limited run with stars Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond.
The show centers around the true story of Leo Frank, who was wrongfully accused of committing a crime in Marietta, Georgia in 1913.
“Parade” features a score by musical theater great Jason Robert Brown.
NYC Off-Broadway Week
Moving to off-Broadway, NYC Off-Broadway Week is happening now through March 5.
Take advantage of the two for one tickets for shows like “Without You” about Anthony Rapp’s time creating “Rent” with the late Jonathan Larson or “Titanique,” which is the “Titanic” Celine Dion parody musical.

“The Illusionist’s Table” at The McKittrick Hotel
Heading now on over to The McKittrick Hotel. If magic, fine dining and whisky tasting sounds like your thing, you will not want to miss a hang at “The Illusionist’s Table.”
Host Scott Silven promises mind-bending illusions and mystical mentalism, not to mention “your dreams will be revealed,” according to the show’s press notes.
Jennifer Holliday at 54 Below

Expect the glamorous diva to perform her signature tune “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” and much more.
