“Josh Recommends” By Josh Garrick: HELLO DOLLY!!! LIVE at the Garden Theatre 

The good folks at the Garden Theatre have jumped through hurdles to let theater lovers -- like us -- into a live theater experience. And they've done it with one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time: HELLO DOLLY. I don't think I've ever met a person who doesn't love this musical. It's the lovable and award-winning Jerry Herman at his “music and lyrics best.”

Hop over to skid row to be enchanted by Stratford Festival's production of Little Shop of Horrors.

Lillie Forteau's picture

You need to see Beautiful–The Carole King Musical. Why? Whether you think you know Carole King’s songs or not, you’ll be surprised at how many of her songs are familiar ones you love. This musical focuses on this singer-songwriter’s career, and her journey through the hardships of life, ups and downs, and the changing scene of songwriting. Her journey (still unfolding!) can be seen through the beautiful, powerful, thoughtful songs she wrote.

I don’t think there was a time in my life when I didn’t know what Merrily We Roll Along was, unlike most people. Not a Day Goes By when we don’t listen to, hum, or sing all or part of the soundtrack.

Beyond the Rainbow: The Judy Garland Musical at Farmers Alley Theatre

Beyond the Rainbow, naturally, is a song-based glimpse into Judy Garland’s life - her turmoil, struggles, loves, and addictions. It is thoughtful, clever, and, at times, even comical. To say that this is the most unique, insightful musical would be spot on. There is truly nothing like it.

We Just Can't Wait...Why You Need to See the Lion King On Tour

We shouldn’t have to convince you to go to this musical. The Lion King has been on Broadway for over 20 years. If you haven’t seen it yet, WOW. Just...wow. To top all of the talent off, it has the most stunning costuming – things you can’t have imagined that will stick with you for life.

It Doesn't Matter How Many Times You've Seen the Movie - Here's Why You Need to See Sound of Music on Tour

Surely you have at least heard The Sound of Music, whether it was on the big screen, a high school production, or from someone singing the classic notes of "yodel eh he hooo!" on the street. And you probably think it was the best thing ever, and NOTHING could beat out the (insert favorite version here). But you are quite wrong. The Sound of Music on Tour is well-paced, well-acted, well...clothed. With, of course, phenomenal singing. We were stunned at the opening song, moved to goosebumps and shivers (and not because it was cold).

#StandForLove. 

Have you seen Kinky Boots yet? Maybe not - it's only been on Broadway for 5 years, and it's already a global sensation. This musical, which has a rich history, started out as a BBC documentary based on a real story. A long and winding road led to a movie, and then this Broadway smash musical. It's an important story of history, family, friends, and finding and staying true to yourself. Kinky Boots is on tour - get your tickets, as this is a show worth seeing.
