Galentine's Day

Galentine’s Day the Broadway Way

While we have plans in store for Valentine’s Day, we have not forgotten about Galentine’s Day! From the mind of Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day is the day to set aside romantic love and celebrate the platonic love in your life.

Check out these five Broadway musicals that we think are perfect for uplifting those around you, reveling in being single, or just having plain fun this Galentine’s Day.

Chicago

Forget your troubles for the evening and head “where the gin is cold but the piano’s hot.” Celebrate Galentine’s Day with murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly through the lively score and the popping “Cell Block Tango” at the Ambassador Theatre. Who knows, the sentiment Velma Kelly sings of “no, I’m no one’s wife, but oh, I love my life,” could be exactly what you need on this day! And right now, you can catch the fabulous Jinkx Monsoon in the role Matron “Mama” Morton!

Gather your group of queens and head to watch Broadway’s queens perform live in SIX. Featuring an all-female cast and band, stopping at the Lena Horne Theatre on Galentine’s Day is the ideal way to spend the day. With a Tony Award-winning musical score you won’t be able to get out of your head, SIX will make you want to finish off the night by heading to a karaoke session with your queendom, inspired by the SIX pop queens.
