For fans of musical concerts, the electrifying performances at the Jingle Ball paired with the empowering anthems of SIX on Broadway create a fun blend of contemporary pop music and historical storytelling that will make for an unforgettable experience.
The Jingle Ball in NYC stands out as one of the most anticipated winter events. This star-studded concert brings together some of the biggest names in music for an unforgettable night of performances. And while the Jingle Ball lights up the music scene, the Broadway musical SIX has been making waves in the theatre world. This contemporary musical reimagines the lives of Henry VIII’s six wives as pop divas, delivering a performance that’s as empowering as it is entertaining.
Both SIX and the Jingle Ball offer high-energy, entertaining performances that captivate audiences by showcasing a unique blend of music, talent, and creativity. Whether it’s the chart-topping hits performed by music’s biggest stars at the Jingle Ball or the empowering anthems sung by Henry VIII’s wives in SIX, both events are guaranteed to leave audiences with unforgettable memories. Plus, if you enjoy how SIX stands as a testament to feminine strength and resilience, you will love the Jingle Ball’s lineup. This year, the concert features several female artists who have made significant strides in music, including Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia Rodrigo and SZA.
For those in the mood for a musical journey imbued with a touch of nostalgia, the soulful jazz performances at Dizzy’s Club, coupled with the music-based storyline of Harmony on Broadway, make for an unforgettable pairing.
Located in the heart of New York City at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Dizzy’s Club is a jazz club that offers live music every night of the week.

Harmony tells the true story of the Comedian Harmonists, an ensemble of six talented young men in 1920s Germany who rose from unemployed street musicians to become world-famous entertainers. The musical beautifully captures their journey, the joy of their music, and the heartbreak of their story as the band faces the rise of Nazism.
