What's that you say? Isn't there still twenty-five more days left in 2016? Yes there is. However that doesn't mean we can't look forward to the coming year right? Now as the title of my blog says, there are seven new musicals set to open next year. Seven! That has to be a record right? Actually it's not as uncommon as you might think. Spring has always been the time when most new musicals, as well as new plays, and revivals.
Why you ask? It's quite simple actually. The closer a show opens to the Tony Award nominations, the fresher the show is in the minds of the people nominating those shows. Makes sense to me. But enough about the nominations. After all that is still over four months away. Plus you came here to find out what shows are still set to open this season right? So let's get to it. Here is a list of those shows.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Come From Away
Quite the lineup don't you think? Now of those seven shows, three of those are based on movies. Now I know what you're thinking. Wasn't Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a movie as well? It was. However this version from what I have heard, is based more on the Roald Dahl book. Which by the way was one of my favorite books as a child. Here's hoping the show is just as good.
Now while I have never seen the movie Groundhog Day I have been told that it is one of the funniest movies ever made. Not surprising since it stars Bill Murray and is was written and directed by the later Harold Ramis. Who knows? Maybe I'll get around to seeing it before it opens next Spring. I might even check out Amélie and Anastasia too. Stranger things have happened.
Now for those of you who want more information about each of these shows, simply click on the shows link, and you can read a synopsis about the show, as well as how you can purchase tickets to see it. Oh wait. You didn't know we sold tickets for all of these shows? Well we do. In fact we sell tickets to every play and musical both On and Off-Broadway. Here's to an exciting Broadway season everyone. Until next time theatre fans.
