Broadway Shows I Can’t Wait To See

Untitled Design

There are a lot of upcoming Broadway shows that I’m anticipating (I have so many trips to plan!). Here are just a few of them:

1) The Band’s Visit – I know it’s open already, but I haven’t had the chance to go. I’ve heard nothing but incandescent things about the cast, especially Katrina Lenk, and I love David Yazbeck’s music. I want to go and be blown away by it all.
2) Carousel Carousel is actually one of my least favorite musicals. However, I’m convinced that Josh Henry’s “Soliloquy” will be worth the price of admission alone.┬áSeriously. Can I pay to watch that?
3) Moulin Rouge – If you follow this blog at all, you know that Moulin Rouge is my favorite movie of all time.┬áThe musical is┬ápremiering in Boston this summer before heading to Broadway. I love the music, and I can’t wait to see how the story translates to the stage.
4) My Fair Lady – I’m intrigued by this one. I’ve never seen My Fair Lady onstage, nor have I really seen Lauren Ambrose in anything. But people rave about her, and I have seen a few things at the Vivian Beaumont. I hope Bartlett Sher pulls out all the stops. (Plus, Norbert Leo Butz and Diana Rigg? Sign me up.)
5) Once On This Island – This one I am actually planning to see this spring. I’m obsessed with this stellar cast and the idea of it staged in the round. I know next to nothing about this musical and can’t wait to learn.
