Broadway choice for July 23 matininee

I am in my 60s staying in NYC this summer. I was heading over to Brooklyn to TKTS and wanted some help. My three choices If / Then, Motown or Pippin.

If/Then is a bit esoteric (it's by the same folks who wrote Next to Normal.)

Motown is a slight musical but it's got all that great Motown sound

Pippin is a fun musical about living life to its fullest.

I'd probably do If/Then as I haven't seen it & then Pippin. I did Motown once, It was great fun but I only need to see it once.

If you go to NYC & Co, you'll probably find the same three shows on their Broadway discount flyer & then you can take it directly to the box office & avoid the TKTS line in the heat.

Do you realize for a matinee you'd have to go the day before the performance for Brooklyn TKTS? The only reason IMO, to use the TKTS booth is to see something that doesn't have a posted discount you could buy in advance. If you like Carol King music, I would try for Beautiful which is not discounted. Otherwise, if you want one of the 3 you list, I would just use a discount from


Or theatermania.com or playbill.com

As to which one, that's really. personal taste. Watch some cideo from each of them and see which appeals to you most.
