Some people say Broadway has it all: glamour, humor, tragedy, romance and more. If ticket sales are any indication, these people are right and 2014 marks one of the most successful runs of Broadway shows in history. From the irreverent humor of The Book of Mormon to the family-friendly charm of The Lion King, Broadway offers something for everyone. The venues are gorgeous, the cast members talented and the stories are enthralling, but tickets are going fast.
Turn to HeadlineTickets.com to reserve seats for all that New York's iconic theater district has to offer starting with three of Broadway's most-loved darlings: Wicked, The Lion King and The Book of Mormon.
The Lion King - Currently showing at the Minskoff Theatre on West 45th Street in New York, Tony Award winning The Lion King is a spectacle to behold. The scenery features a lush view of the sweeping Serengeti populated by an animated cast of African wildlife like gazelles, giraffes, birds and of course, the star of the show, Simba the lion cub. Elton John's stirring music is the perfect accompaniment to Tim Rice's beautiful lyrics, and it's all brought to fruition by a brilliant cast including Aaron Nelson as Simba, Alton Fitzgerald White as Mufasa, Chantel Riley as Nala and Gareth Saxe as Scar.
Wicked -- This is a bold reimagining of Frank L. Baum's classic tale, The Wizard of Oz, but this one offers a few modern twists. Featuring the origins of the land of Oz, the Wicked Witch (Elphaba) and Glinda the good witch, this is one of the current Broadway shows fans dare not miss. Helmed by director Joe Mantello and featuring the stunning music of Stephen Schwartz, Wicked tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a young Glinda and a young Elphaba while showing the audience an untold side of Oz. The cast includes Jenni Barber as Glinda the good witch, Christine Dwyer as Elphaba (the wicked witch), P.J. Benjamin as The Wizard and Justin Guarini as Fiyero.
The Book of Mormon -- Fans of outrageous humor, will enjoy The Book of Mormon from the minds of South Park creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Avenue Q co-creator, Robert Lopez. One of the most popular Broadway shows in the district, The Book of Mormon tells the story of two missionaries on a mission to convert citizens in Uganda to the Mormon faith. Described as an "old-style musical with a modern sensibility," the show features music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez along with stellar performances by Nic Rouleau as Elder Price, Ben Platt as Elder Cunningham and Matt Loehr as Elder McKinley.
These three Broadway shows are just a sample of the high-concept productions currently showing on Broadway. When other vendors have sold all of their seats, HeadlineTickets.com provides fans with a way to catch a piece of the action.
