Suggestion for a Broadway show you can't see in London

We'd like to see a broadway show when we go to new york (not till sept so got a while to decide).

We live in London so have seen several of the big shows like Mamma Mia, Spamalot, Billy Elliot etc.

What we'd really like is a show that's unique to New York, something we wouldn't be able to see in London. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Lincoln Center's revival of South Pacific is gorgeous. And Hair is getting lots of buzz!

Funny thing: the one show I saw when I was in London years ago was West Side Story! :)

(I enjoyed the British accents on the Sharks and the Jets!)

We saw West Side Story a couple of weeks ago and whilst it was good it was not fantastic. Be aware that tickets for the best seats are also more expensive than London.

Yes, I also saw the current WSS in NY and I agree, it's good but not fantastic. I do believe the London WSS (of years ago) was quite better! (British accents and all)
