Broadway Shows This Coming Season

EventD8 - Broadway Shows This Upcoming Season - 05-08-2016 - V1Here is a shocking and controversial statement… There is more to Broadway than just Hamilton! Right now the hottest ticket in town is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical about Alexander Hamilton, one of our founding fathers. And it is absolutely impossible to get tickets. Those who saw the show off-Broadway or booked tickets early in the show’s run are extraordinarily lucky, as the show is now sold out for the foreseeable future. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t dozens of other shows on Broadway that are well worth your time and money! To get you ahead of the crowd, here’s the scoop on some of the major shows that will be debuting on Broadway in the 2016-2017 season. It might be a good idea to book your tickets now!

Cats
If you know anything at all about musicals, you know about Cats. It is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most popular and successful shows, running 18 years on Broadway. This upcoming season, Cats is back with a brand new production from the original director, Trever Nunn, and a brand new choreographer, Hamilton’s Andy Blankenbuehler! If you missed it the first time around, or even if you saw it a hundred times, you should book now. This new production is going to be a very hot ticket!

Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, a musical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace, debuted off-Broadway in a tent in 2014. After appearing on multiple critics best of lists, it is now triumphantly arriving on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre later in 2016. The show uses an interactive style of storytelling with the musical being staged around the audience. And for those who want a little bit of star power, Josh Groban will be playing the leading role! If you are a fan of history, literature, handsome pop stars, or just have a thing for Russia, this is a show you can’t miss!

Falsettos
Long before the Broadway success of The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee, writer and composer William Finn was the toast of Broadway for his semi-autobiographical musical Falsettos. Dealing with the delicate subject matter of being gay in 1980s America, this groundbreaking musical won multiple Tony awards. Now it is back with a brand new revival production from the original director James Lapine. This is sure to be a critical hit so it might be worth getting tickets early on so you can have bragging rights later!

Anastasia
The beloved childhood animated film is being made into a Broadway musical! The team behind the classic Broadway musical Ragtime (Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens, and Stephen Flaherty) reunite to tell the story of the possible Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, the youngest daughter of the last Czar. The musical will expand on the movie with brand new songs and characters. Hamilton proved that shows about history are hot on Broadway, so between that and the name recognition of the film, you can expect tickets to go fast!

There are a ton of incredible shows on right now on Broadway and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon! Worldwide Ticketcraft loves the theatre, from Broadway to community productions. If you are looking to give your latest production that extra edge, we are here with professional and affordable tickets for your venue that every audience member will feel privileged to hold!

On with the show!

The Magic of the Theater

The Magic of the TheaterCan you remember the very first time you saw a musical? The crowd, the lights, the stage, the actors… and of course the songs. All of it coming together into a spectacle that can leave audiences breathless with tears or standing on their feet cheering. For many people, that first taste of theater can set them on a journey they will follow for the rest of their lives. And there is one stop on that journey that everyone should make: Broadway.

Broadway has shaped the world of popular entertainment for over a hundred years and today is still going strong. Walk anywhere near Times Square in New York City and you can feel the draw of the theater, with giant flashing signs advertising dozens of shows. Every single night, thousands of people sit in those theaters and are entertained by some of the most talented performers in the world. A ticket to a Broadway show is literally a ticket to another world; a world of imagination and wonder. Just holding a ticket to the theater can give someone the feeling of possibility and excitement. And that goes far beyond just Broadway.

Brilliant theater is produced all over America. From professional regional theaters to high school productions, the spirit of performance is strong all over the country. Take amateur theater, for example. In many cases there is nothing amateur about amateur theater. The cast and crew of these shows put in months of rehearsal and every bit of their passion to create an experience that their audience will remember. In some towns, the local theater is at the very heart of the community. The musical productions, plays, and concerts that the town puts on are points of pride and works of love. Everyone in the town buys tickets, often weeks in advance! If you ever wonder where the singers, dancers, and actors of Broadway get their start, this is it. Once they cut their teeth on amateur productions, entertaining audiences gets into their blood.

And don’t forget about high school musicals! The productions, not necessarily the TV show or films. For students, the involvement in this kind of a production goes far beyond a local amateur musical. The kids play all of the parts, regardless of the ages of the characters. The sets are designed by students, the band is made up of students, the technicians are students… Heck, sometimes even the box office is run by students! All of this happens under the watchful eyes of teachers whose passion for theater can be infectious. Even if the students decide not to follow theater as a career, positive memories of their high school musical can follow them all their lives.

It is safe to say that, for the audience, everything starts with their ticket. A ticket is the very first impression a production makes. A polished, professional ticket can raise expectations that a really special performance awaits the ticket holder. At Worldwide Ticketcraft, we offer professional and affordable tickets for any kind of production that you are putting on. Musical, play, concert… You pick the ticket style, the graphics, the text, and we provide the tickets! After all of the weeks of rehearsal, costume and set design, lighting, booking the theater, you want your production to be a polished and professional as possible. And with our tickets, that is exactly what you will get.

One of the keys to the success of any production, no matter how big or how small, is to have professional, attractive show tickets.
