Broadway, New York! A haven for the world’s most exquisite musicals and it never disappoints!
While the usual classic blockbusters such as Moulin Rouge, Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Oklahoma, Chicago continue dazzling our screens and lives with drama, passion and music, we made a list of must-see musical theater productions that you may accidentally miss in the glitz!
Here are our top musicals for the 2019-2020 season:
Sis Loves Me
OK, this is not any form of a musical but we really need to mention this brand. Sis Loves Me was launched back in 2016 and it features only the very best of socially controversial fantasies of step siblings having… sex. Living under the same roof tension between step sisters and brothers is out of this world, so thing goes the very wrong way quickly. With over 200 episodes released you can be sure it will keep you busy for quite some time!
Freestyle Love Supreme
This exciting hip-hop themed comedy musical is a long-awaited production… almost 15 years of bated breath can now be exhaled in relief and hopefully, some ecstasy.
Producers Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anthony Veneziale’s combined brilliance makes Freestyle Love Supreme a definite must-watch. Apart from its contemporary, freestyle quality, we recommend it for the interactive improvisation element.
Cues and inspiration from the audience will be turned into songs and performances, making it a night for everyone to remember.
The season for this magical journey, however, lasts for only 16 weeks, beginning October 2, 2019. So, don’t miss it!
The Lightening Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical
There was the book and now this is the musical extravaganza that they rightly say, “hits the spot”!
This fascinating mythology-based Disney-Hyperion by Rick Riordan, doesn’t spare any plot twist or element of entertainment to shock and amaze audiences.
What do you expect when Poseidon’s son himself goes in search of none other than Zeus to halt a war of the Gods?!
As a bevy of 7 actors play nearly 50 different roles, there’s no other place you’d rather be than be witnessing this pulsating action.
The Lightening Thief has an original rock musical score to go with the thrilling theme and like our earlier recommendation it also will be running on Broadway for 16 weeks beginning October 16, 2019.
Jagged Little Pill
Revolving around the enigmatic woman and her award-winning album, these musical addresses the various facades of human nature and family values in a gripping and moving manner.
Everyone who loves Alanis Morrissette and others who fancy a good family satire, should watch Jagged Little Pill with all their hearts.
Though you will catch familiar tunes from the album during the musical, you will also be surprised with a few brand-new ones.
All music elements are handled by Tom Kitt while the immaculate choreography is by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
So, if you got one hand in your pocket, the other one should be booking tickets for this show! Season begins December 5, 2019.
Currently causing a buzz, Grand Horizon is one to look out for in the upcoming months.
This family drama musical is based on a wife’s change of heart after 50 years of marriage. A topical phenomenon handled by superior acting talent is going to be a treat to watch.
Written by Bess Wohl and directed by Leigh Silverman, Grand Horizons will be hitting Broadway on January 23, 2020.
Other musicals we recommend in the upcoming season include Company, The Rose Tattoo, Six and How I Learned to Drive.
