We’re all pretty familiar with a girl named Dorothy, her little dog Toto and the story of Oz. But with over 50 major awards under its cloak, the story of Wicked pulls back the emerald curtain and tells the story of a smart, brave and green-skinned girl named, Elphaba, asking “how did she become so… wicked?”
This one sells out quick, so be sure to book early.

One of Disney’s biggest films in recent years has now become a Broadway hit. Frozen follows the tale of two sisters separated by an icy secret, laced with catchy tunes (good luck letting go of Let It Go), big dance breaks and a joyous final act. See the magic this September at the St James Theatre.

Perhaps the most surprising entry to the Broadway circuit is the musical adaptation of Nickelodeon’s prized cartoon, SpongeBob Squarepants. Revisit our favorite underwater town, Bikini Bottom, as Spongebob and his ragtag friends attempt to save it from absolute destruction. The show features original music from artists such as Steve Tyler, John Legend, Sara Bareilles, Cyndi Lauper and the late, David Bowie.
Catch the fun while you can!
