So me and Mr. MaML will be going to NYC for our anniversary. I love love love theatre and wanted to know which plays you’ve seen and loved. For me personally I’ve seen Wicked (number one of all time), Colour Purple, Miss Saigon, Phantom, Les Mis, Cats (that’s aging me) and Fela
I’ve seen the movie versions of Chicago (didn’t care for it), Rent (loved) and Hairspray so I probably won’t want to see any of those!
Any suggestions or experiences?

Something Rotten!!!!!!!!!!!!! We got our tickets at the TKTS booth and it was amazeballs!
I ALWAYS watch Phantom when I go.
We got lucky and won the Book of Mormon lottery (they have a draw every day at around 5-5:30, can’t remember). That was pretty great, too, but I enjoyed Something Rotten, more!

I just saw On Your Feet a few months ago and loved it. My all time fav is Hairspray. I heard that it’s coming back to Broadway so I can’t wait.
I know Hamilton is getting rave reviews. I may see that in the fall. It has Lin Manuel in it who I loved in In the Heights (he wrote that one). A lot of good ones are no longer showing.
Darling Husband and I go a few times a year (going again in April) and looking for something to bring him to So I was looking around myself today. I’m thinking either on your feet, something rotten or Beautiful.

Hamilton! Yes! I saw the opening number on the Grammys and I loved it! I may just see that, thanks for the reminder 🙂

Husband and I both met because of theatre, so it’s safe to say we’re enormous theatre geeks (He an actor, I the techie) and I’ve gotta say, go see anything you can! We recently saw Avenue Q and it was fantastic. Wicked is another one of my favorites as well. We’re waiting for some Monty Python plays to come around to our local theatres, and Rocky Horror Picture Show is my favorite.
It’s on my bucket list to see something on Broadway.

So I just looked up the tickets to Hamilton.. they are sold out straight until the end of the run? What’s even worse is people are reselling their tickets for 575 USD and up? what the efff…..

Kinky Boots is fabulous! Music by Cindi Lauper, very uplifting and wonderful story. And drag queens. Yay.

Forbidden Broadway! It is a parody of Broadway favorites; when I saw it it parodied different shows than they are doing now, but it was amazing!

Hamilton is the hottest show on Broadway right now. I bought my tickets for March back in October. You can sign up to get notifications as to when tickets are released and jump on them ASAP!

So jealous! It has been far too long since I have seen a proper NYC show. I just checked whats out right now and asked a good friend who is a sound tech out there, he says Book of Mormon is great, very funny. I hear Aladdin is amazing. It sounds like you enjoy the classics. You must see Fiddler then. Beautiful musical about such an interesting turn of culture. Lion King is very inovative with the costume designs by Julie Taymore. Kinky Boots has had great reviews, hope to see it soon. Don’t know about the rest

Yeah, good luck on getting Hamilton tickets :(. They do a lottery every day, that’s probably your best bet (not a GOOD bet, but your best bet).

We def will catch SOMETHING 🙂
yea, I don’t think the hubbs will co-sign kinky boots lol.. thanks though!
I’ll have to look that up!
ugh, I just signed up.. this makes me so sad!
Yea, I may see Lion King as a close second to be honest.. I’ve never seen it ! I;ve seen great things about it though…
I may try the lottery! I really want to go badly!!!

I saw the Broadway version when it was in Las Vegas (for about 5 minutes), it was so unique and such a creative take on the movie. But I am a costume nerd and really respect Julie Taymor.
TKTS in Times Square usually has great deals. Especially if you still have a student ID card

If you do win, I’ll never forgive you, lol. I’ve been ~subtly hinting~ that tickets as a wedding present wouldn’t go amiss….
(I do also second Lion King and Something Rotten, btw. Kinky Boots looks awesome, your husband’s gonna miss out. And of course yes to Fiddler!)
