A Night Out at the Theater: The Theatrical Sensations Currently Sweeping the Globe

Whether you grew up doing musical theater as a child, or whether you’ve come to the theatrical bug later in life, there’s something about a well-produced play or musical that the whole family can get behind. The average Broadway show costs between $10 and $16 million dollars to produce, so there’s a lot of incentive to make these shows accessible for all ages and demographics.

Whether you’re coming because of the title (many of the most popular shows today are based on movies) or the name of the leading star, these hit shows will suck you in, and leave you wanting more.


Lin-Manuel Miranda’s astronomically popular show Hamilton is a rap musical based on the lives of the U.S.’s founding fathers. At first glance, there’s no reason why this show is as popular as it is. It’s based on history, using a unique musical style, and its first production was full of up-and-coming actors with very little name recognition.

Since it first came to New York in 2015, it has remained the most sought-after ticket in the city. The production has won a Pulitzer Prize, Grammy Award, Drama Desk Award, and a remarkable 11 Tony Awards. Currently, there are productions on Broadway, Chicago, London’s West End, and touring around North America.
