For the Holidays

Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn: The Broadway Musical (2016, Broadway)

Some of Irving Berlin’s most beloved and festive tunes are woven into the musical set at an inn that where they celebrate the holidays with festive performances. Broadway performer Jim leaves the city to start the inn, finding a partner and performer in the local schoolteacher Linda. Things begin to fall apart, however, when Jim’s friend Ted shows up and tries to lure Linda away with the lights of Hollywood.

MeshugaNutcracker! (2017)

The MeshugaNutcracker! is a full-length musical comedy that features the wonderfully silly sensibilities of the folklore of Chelm (the fictional town of fools) underscored by an invigorating, Klezmer-ized orchestration of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite”, now with original lyrics that celebrate Chanukah. Judah Maccabee’s triumphant saga and accounts of perseverance during the Holocaust as well as the celebration of the first Chanukah in the new state of Israel emerge with a genuine sense of wonder as the Chelmniks tell eight stories that pay tribute to the holiday. Add in dancing dreidels, singing sufganiot, and surprise guest stars and you have the perfect recipe for a holiday gathering. Some might call it crazy… we call it The MeshugaNutcracker!

She Loves Me (2016, Broadway) 

This musical chestnut, with a score by Bock and Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof), revolves around two coworkers in a Hungarian parfumerie. They despise each other on the job, but are (unbeknownst to one another) anonymous pen pals who have fallen in love through a letter-writing lonely-hearts club.  

Fun for the Family

Billy Elliot Live (2014)

Based on the beloved film and winner of 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Billy Elliot: The Musical Live from London’s West End is a celebration of one of the world’s most popular and successful stage shows. A modern-day fairy tale of a young boy who exchanges boxing gloves for ballet shoes, Billy’s story is set during the 1980’s miner’s strike in northern England, where his determination inspires an entire community. From the creative team behind the original film and music legend Elton John, this story of self-discovery, determination, love, and hope is brought to life in this funny, uplifting, and spectacular experience that you’ll want to experience again and again!

Cats (1998, London) 

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s poetry collection Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats remains one of Broadway’s longest running musicals. Watch as several felines assemble in a junkyard to make their pleas to come back in their next lives. A lively musical for the whole family.

Jesus Christ Superstar (2012, Live Arena Tour) 

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera about the final harrowing days of Jesus Christ is given a spectacular-sized treatment in this arena tour. Jesus Christ Superstar features many song favorites including “Heaven on Their Minds,” and “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”

Memphis (2011, Broadway)

This Tony-winning Best Musical taught audiences to “never let anyone steal their rock ‘n’ roll.” Memphis tells the story of a white disc jockey who wants to play black music on the radio. The musical is loosely based on the true story of Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips.

Jekyll and Hyde (2001, Broadway) 

Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse tackle Robert Louis Stevenson’s chilling classic novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, providing an electrically charged score that includes “This Is the Moment” and “Someone Like You.” TV and pop star David Hasselhoff takes the lead as the titular dual roles.  

Kiss Me, Kate (2003, London) 

When a theater company puts on a production of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, things get complicated when the arrogant director/lead must work opposite his short-tempered ex-wife. Art begins to imitate life as the musical begins to parallel the play they are putting on. Chock-full of Cole Porter classics, Kiss Me, Kate is a hilarious battle of the wits.

Les Misérables (2010, 25th-anniversary concert)

A long-running London and Broadway classic, Les Misérables has touched the hearts of millions. Songs such as “Bring Him Home,” “On My Own,” and “Stars” have become Broadway standards. Celebrate Les Miz’s 25th anniversary with this concert of the musical based on Victor Hugo’s epic novel about a man’s transformation through faith.

Sweeney Todd: In Concert (2001, concert) 

The tale of Sweeney Todd, the barber who was unjustly imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, and his cannibalistic plan for revenge, was turned into a Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. This concert version of the show relays the sinister (and tragic) plot, as well as the glorious score, including the songs like “A Little Priest” and “Not While I’m Around.”  

Oklahoma! (1999, Royal National Theatre)

The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical comes to life in Trevor Nunn’s captivating staging of the story of an Oklahoma farm girl who must choose between the cocky cowboy and the brooding farmhand who are courting her. The musical features a delightful score, including such Rodgers and Hammerstein classics as “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” and the rousing title number. 

The Phantom of the Opera (2011, 25th anniversary concert)

An enormous hit in London, and Broadway’s longest-running musical of all time, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is celebrated here with a gala concert for its 25th anniversary. The story of the opera ghost who mentors and manipulates a young ingénue is based on the Gaston Leroux novel of the same name.  

Star Power

Candide (2005, concert) 

Leonard Bernstein’s Candide is the story of a gentleman who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, clings desperately to the belief that he lives in “the best of all possible worlds.” This comic operetta, with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by, among others, Richard Wilbur and Stephen Sondheim, sparkles with performances by Patti LuPone and Kristin Chenoweth.

Falsettos (2017, Broadway) 

Nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon‑to‑be‑bar‑mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. Originally created under the specter of the AIDS crisis, this timely musical about middle‑class family dynamics manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.

Gypsy (2015, London) 

This glittering, exuberant new production of Gypsy, captured in 2015 before a live audience in London’s legendary Savoy Theatre, captures the energy and dazzle of the classic musical in a whole new light.  The recipient of eight Olivier Award nominations, this production stars Imelda Staunton in the iconic role of Mama Rose, with Lara Pulver, Gemma Sutton, Peter Davison, and Dan Burton offering outstanding supporting performances.  The Daily Telegraph calls it “a triumph for Imelda Staunton,” and The Times calls it a “stunning revival of one of the greatest Broadway musicals.”
