Many of us choose theatre trips as gifts or make sure we include the theatre as part of the holiday traditions we have chosen several to recommend around the world, we think you will love.
New York – Head Over Heels
Head Over Heels (starring Peppermint) is the bold and fierce new musical comedy from the visionaries that rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening.
Set to the iconic music of the 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, it includes the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth,” and many more! It’s a hilarious and sexy celebration of love in all its infinite varieties, told through the story of a royal family that must embark on an extravagant journey to save their beloved kingdom and find love and acceptance.
Chicago – The Adventures of Robin Hood
Three actors. Twenty characters. One timeless tale.
A corrupt sheriff plagues the commoners of Nottingham. His skyrocketing taxes are preventing the needy from being able to feed themselves! Who will stand up to the injustices and bring hope back to the people? Follow Robin Hood and his Merry Men as they take you on a journey of action, danger, and of course, archery.
This medieval legend with a modern twist places a cast of three at the center of the story, reimagining the tale with enthusiasm, tenacity, and vigor.
London – Everybody’s talking about Jamie.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie opened to critical acclaim at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017, and is now running at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End.
Once upon a time, there was a 16-year-old boy who had a secret he wanted to tell… So, he approached a documentary filmmaker as you do, and asked if they would help him tell it. The resulting documentary was seen by a theatre director and it inspired him to create a musical. A producing regional theatre backed him. He then bumped into a famous musical theatre star who introduced him to a well-known pop composer who was working with a lyricist and book writer. The theatre put on the production. A major producer saw it and offered them a West End theatre.
So now all you need to do is go and grab a ticket!
