High School Musical alum Vanessa Hudgens is everything and more in "Gigi"! The actress was born to take on the broadway stage and she's doing so at the Neil Simon Theater.

The show will be running through June so make sure you buy tickets while you still can at gigionbroadway.com!

2 An American in Paris
With 12 Tony Award nominations (including Best Musical), "An American in Paris" is a total must-see! It's the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

3 Jersey Boys
I haven't gotten around to watch this show, but it's definitely on my to-do list for this summer. "Jersey Boys" is the behind-the-scenes broadway musical about Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, which means amazing music is pretty much guaranteed! If you watched the movie and loved it, you'll watch this musical and think it's too good to be true. Find tickets on jerseyboysinfo.com.
4 Matilda the Musical
It's Matilda like you've never seen her before: on Broadway! Winner of 50 international awards, including the Tony Award, and one of the biggest hits on Broadway, this show is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and make her own destiny.

5 The Way We Get by
Former Mean Girl Amanda Seyfried will star in an off-Broadway play this summer! This is another one on my must-watch list because, well, I'm a fan of all things Amanda Seyfried. It's a story about love and lust and is at the 2econd Stage Theatre and will run through June. Buy tickets at 2st.com!
You can't do Broadway without going to see "Wicked"! Seriously, it's a magical show. You'll find yourself singing these songs for weeks after the show and you won't even mind it. Find tickets on wickedthemusical.com and add "Watch Wicked" to your summer Broadway bucket list!
7 The Book of Mormon
Headed near the Eugene O'Neill Theatre? Find some time to check out "The Book of Mormon"! It follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to try to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. You're sure to have plenty of laughs! Find tickets on bookofmormonbroadway.com.
