Wicked Becomes Eighth Longest-running Show on Broadway

12th September 2017 | Category: Theater

We are thrilled to announce that “Wicked” became the eighth longest-running show on Broadway with its 5,759th performance at the Gershwin Theatre this August.

The musical is surpassing “Mamma Mia” after its great success and popularity gained since the 2003 premiere. The number one is “Phantom of the Opera”, followed by “Chicago”, “The Lion King”, “Cats”, “Les Miserables”, “A Chorus Line” and “Oh! Calcuta!” in seventh place.

It is not the only chart this musical went up this year. In July 2017, Wicked surpassed “The Phantom of the Opera” as Broadway’s second-highest-grossing show, now trailing only “The Lion King”.

If you still haven’t seen this cultural phenomenon, now is your chance to buy the tickets here and enjoy Broadway’s biggest blockbuster. According to critics, if every musical had the brain, heart and courage of “Wicked”, Broadway would be a magical place. Don’t miss it!

Wicked: the Untold Story of the Witches of Oz with the music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, won 3 Tony Awards, 7 Drama Desk Awards, 4 Outer Critic Circle Awards and a Grammy with its original production. This Broadway musical looks at what happened in Oz from a different angle, shedding a new light on the original characters and plot of “Wizard of Oz” we all liked when we were young.

A young woman, Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery, misunderstood and with an extraordinary talent. She meets a bubbly blonde Glinda and their initial rivalry turns into the unexpected friendship. Elphaba’s dream was to meet the famous Wizard of Oz and do well but soon, she realized he is merely a charlatan and has no powers.

He only tried to use her and after she refused, the Wizard and his secretary spread rumors about her being dangerous and not to be trusted. Glinda stayed by Wizard’s side since he promised to make her dreams come true. Following the Wizard’s lead, the world decided to put prejudicial labels on them, calling Glinda the good and Elphaba the wicked witch.

Join Elphaba on her magical journey in a fight against evil and purchase tickets for all venues here.

Don’t miss Uma Thurman’s Broadway Debut in The Parisian Woman

6th September 2017 | Category: Theater

Pulp Fiction Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman will make her Broadway debut this fall in a political drama “The Parisian Woman”, a new play written by Academy Award and Emmy Award Nominee Beau Willimon, the creator of “House of Cards”.

Willmon’s inspiration for “The Parisian Woman” comes from the 1885 controversial play by French dramatist Henri Becque’s “La Parisienne”. The play is directed by Tony Award winner for “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Pam MacKinnon. The play commissioned and developed by The Flea Theater in New York City, and was originally produced by South Coast Repertory. The previews begin on November 7 and the opening night is scheduled for November 30.

Tickets for all venues are available here.

Uma Thurman, A-list movie star, plays Chloe, a socialite armed with charm and wit, who comes to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future in Washington D.C. where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election.

“It’s contemporary, it’s sharp, it’s witty and it’s a grown-up piece of material,” Ms. Thurman said in an interview about her act about a woman who is asking her lover to help her husband get a high-level government position. “I think it moves beautifully, and I felt like it was a good part for me.”

Ms. Thurman said she had been looking for years for an opportunity to return to the theater stage since her 1999 Off Broadway appearance in an adaptation of Moliere’s “The Misanthrope”.

“I’ve given my whole life to performance; many of the pieces I’ve done have been very dramatic and rehearsed,” Ms. Thurman said. “That’s the part I’ve enjoyed the most — the exploration of language, the theatricality — and I’m looking forward to something of real depth and complexity.”

Besides Uma Thurman, many great names will be seen here. ParTony nominee Phillipa Soo and Marton Csokas have joined the starry lineup. Josh Lucas appears as Tom, the husband, and Tony winner Blair Brown as Jeanette Simpson, mom to Soo’s character.

Don’t miss this exciting, sharp and fabulous play and witness the hard work of some of the greatest names of the theatre.

Tickets for Uma Thurman’s show can be purchased here.

Hamilton: The Hottest Broadway Musical on Tour

15th June 2017 | Category: Theater

For those who haven’t been that lucky to witness the Hamilton sensation so far, the Hamilton national tour gives them the opportunity to watch the show in their own cities. The Broadway’s hottest play could not be seen outside New York and Chicago before the beginning of this tour, and there is no filmed version of it, but it did not prevent Hamilton from becoming a worldwide phenomenon.

More than 100,000 people wanted to watch the musical since the preview plays started on 10 March in San Francisco and all tickets were sold out immediately as predicted. Hamilton will be played in San Francisco till 5 August and then it will move to Los Angeles from 11 August until 30 December. Hurry up to get the tickets here.

Considering the attention this show received on the tour which started in March 2017, this historical musical is set to kick off the second national tour launching in Seattle in February 2018 and is also scheduled for stops in San Diego, Boston, Denver, Portland and more.

Ever since the show’s opening in New York in 2015, this two-act hip hop musical about one of the Founding Fathers and the American Revolution, has won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, won 11 out of 16 record-breaking Tony Awards nominations, as well as seven Drama Desk Awards out of 14 nominated categories. With its non-white cast, it portrays a different, non-conventional picture of founding of America than the history textbooks show.

The music, lyrics and book were written by the Tony award winner Lyn Manuel Miranda. He got his inspiration from Ron Chernow’s 2004 Alexander Hamilton biography he accidentally read at an airport. After only few chapters he decided to bring it to life on stage. He breathed life into this revolutionary tale about taking your shot, speaking your mind and turning the life upside down. Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail directed this musical about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe Aaron Burr. A film adaptation of this show, which achieved both critical acclaim and box office success, is in the works.
