Help with choosing Broadway Show

I am taking my husband to NY for his birthday and this is his first trip. I want to see a show although my husband is not into the theater. Can anyone suggest a fun show for us to see that he might enjoy? Thanks for the suggestions!

I wouldn't spend all that money for a show if he is not into theater. Find out when Book of Mormon is playing. Enter the lottery. Go across the street to E & E's Grillhouse for a drink. Come back and see if you won. If you did, go back to the bar for a casual dinner. If not, either settle in for a full dinner or walk over to TKTS and see what is available.

Hard to say without knowing your interests, etc. We saw Annie and Wicked and loved both. Wicked, though, was a whole different level with the set and the special effects, plus Annie was a lot of screaming kids so I don't think it fits the bill for you.

Dying to see Book of Mormon, it's next on my list.

There really is nothing like the Lion King from my experience. It has that WOW effect.
