i get a kick out of you

Just a little bit ago, Cleveland's own Playhouse Square announced the line up for their 2012-2013 Broadway series. I don't know if I've mentioned this yet or not, but I am a total theater junkie. I did theater in high-school, have had two stage plays of my own produced, and loved Wicked so much I got a "Defy Gravity" tattoo. That last one takes nerd to a whole 'nother level, people.

There's just something so magical about seeing a live show. Of getting all dressed up and the excitement and anticipation as you're waiting for the curtain to rise, getting goosebumps as the Overture starts. I love movies and all but I love musicals.


So, without further ado, let's take a look at this year's shows!

Anything Goes [October 2-14, 2012]
Um, I freaking adore Anything Goes. I was in the chorus my junior year of high-school and of all the plays I did while at HHS, this was by far my absolute favorite (and not just because the set was phenomenal). I still remember every line from the title song and who doesn't love tap dancing on a big cruise liner?

Beauty and the Beast [November 6-18, 2012]
Pretty sure this is the first Broadway show I ever saw actually on Broadway and it'll be in town during my birthday! Double yay!

Priscilla Queen of the Desert [January 15-27, 2013]
Drag Queens. Need I say more?

Sister Act [March 5-17, 2013]
Singing nuns? Sign me up.

War Horse [April 9-21, 2013]
You know a play has street cred when Spielberg directed the movie adaptation.

Guys & Dolls [May 1 - June 23, 2013]
Gambling, drinking, and dancing, oh my! Another show I did in high-school and loved.

Book of Mormon [June 18 - July 7, 2013]
Hell. To. The. Yes.

With the Broadway Series I usually just pick and choose, but this season is so strong I am highly tempted to buy a subscription. Oh Playhouse Square, you really are the top.

Love from the ashes,

  1. Wow, that is a fabulous line up, especially Book of Mormon. I remember the Anything Goes set (from watching it, I didn't catch the theatre bug til college), and it was impressive! I did Guys & Dolls when I was 12 weeks pregnant with G, and those songs still make her sing and dance like nobody's business.
