Here is a list of my Top 10 favorite shows that I've seen!

01

Come From Away

An uplifting musical about the 38 planes that landed in Gander, Newfoundland after 9/11, the people on them, and the people who welcomed them to their town with open arms and care. 

 

02

The Ferryman

Set in 1981 in Northern Ireland, The Ferryman follows Quinn Carney and his family at harvest time when their annual celebration is interrupted by an unexpected visitor who throws a knife into the celebration, bringing with him details about the death of Quinn's brother, Seamus Carney.

03

Merrily We Roll Along

Following a group of friends in showbiz, Merrily is about friendship, the ins and outs of show business, the American Dream, and what happens when they are all at odds with each other. Featuring music by Sondheim, including "Now You Know" and "Opening Doors," this show has become one of Sondheim's most beloved works. 

 

04

Girl from the North Country

This musical follows a down on their luck community in Duluth, Minnesota during the Great Depression, with their story beautifully told using songs from Bob Dylan's wide catalog. Achingly beautiful and heartbreaking, it truthfully tells a story of humanity while the music of Dylan lights up the stage. 

 

05

A Bronx Tale

Fittingly dubbed "a combination of Jersey Boys and West Story" and based on Chazz Palminteri's one man play which inspired the movie, A Bronx Tale takes the audience to the streets of the Bronx in the 1960s, and shows the story of Calogero, who is caught between his father whom he loves, and the mobster he wants to be like. 

 

06

Moulin Rouge! The Musical

The musical adaption of this classic movie musical follows Christian, an artist who arrives in Paris and falls in love with Satine, a dancer at the Moulin Rouge. However, Satine has been promised to the Duke so the next production at the Moulin Rouge can be funded. The pair continue to meet in secret and fall in love while Satine hides a fatal secret from both Christian and the Duke, 

07

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 

The eighth chapter in the story of the now famous wizard, this play is a companion to J.K. Rowling's novels and tells the story of Harry's son Albus as he prepares to head off to Hogwarts, and the story of his unlikely friends and life under his father's legacy. 

08

Smokey Joe's Cafe

The revue features 39 pop standards that range from rock and roll to rhythm and blues, all written by Leiber and Stoller. It celebrates the humor, passion, and heartbreak of every day life.  

09

A Chorus Line

Now a classic Broadway show after its debut in 1975, A Chorus Line gives the audience a glimpse into the minds and hearts of those in the ensemble, created by Broadway dancers who were unhappy with the state of Broadway in the 70's. Poignant, beautiful, and touching, it will leave your mind opened and your heart forever changed. 

10

Head Over Heels

The new musical featuring the songs of the GoGo's, Head Over Heels is a celebration of love in all forms as it follows a royal family on their quest to save their beloved kingdom, only to discover what they need to save it is inside their hearts.
