I thought it would be fun to see what everyone has confirmed tickets to, and what they’re seriously considering seeing on Broadway between now and the end of the year.STILL trying to decide on Beetlejuice, but I did just buy my ticket to Hadestown!That gives me four confirmed shows on two trips to Broadway this year:- Phantom of the Opera- Kinky Boots- Moulin Rouge- Hadestown
This year, I've already seen Kiss Me Kate, Pretty Woman, Come From Away, The Other Josh Cohen, and Alice By Heart.My only confirmed ticket is Dear Evan Hansen in September. My mom is retiring this year, and my sister and I are surprising her with tickets. Yes, I am the grumbling 30-year old who thinks the other 2017 Best Musical nominees were better, while my 60-something mother really wants to see Dear Evan Hansen Should be fun, though.My partner and I are planning a trip in the spring to see Dave Malloy's Octet at Signature Theater. While we're there, I'm also hoping to see Tootsie, Hadestown, The Cher Show, and The Ferryman. My partner also wants to see The Prom, which I saw back in December. Will have to see how the slots work out.Jagged Little Pill doesn't have a theater yet, but I really enjoyed it in Boston and am looking forward to seeing it again. I'm having trouble getting excited about Moulin Rouge - I don't like what I've heard about the changes from the film, and the ticket prices are quite high.On the touring end, I'm seeing Hello Dolly tomorrow.
Have 2 visits to NY planned for this year. One is May 1st to the 5th, the other is in November, probably right before Thanksgiving.The May trip, I will be traveling solo. I have six shows lined up over 4 days, and they are Hadestown, Ain't Too Proud, Hilary and Clinton, To Kill a Mockingbird, Gary, and Kiss Me, Kate.November, I will be traveling with my girlfriend, and 3 of her sisters. (She has one other, who will not be joining us.) This will be her sisters' first visit to NY, so I will be showing all of them around. I plan to see some shows while I am there. Her sisters are not interested, but I am planning to take my girlfriend to a few. I definitely want to take her to Moulin Rouge, and I am also considering the Tina Turner show if that is playing by then, as I have heard good things from London.

Skipping NYC this year, for the first time in many years. Will be seeing the tour of Finding Neverland at the end of this month and the tour of Come From Away in Orlando in June. If Waitress tour offers lottery seats next week (it is selling badly so would be surprised if they didn't) will see that next week.
My upcoming shows that I already have tickets for...King LearMerrily We Roll AlongMy Fair Lady (4th time)Hadestown Beetlejuice All My SonsOklahoma!Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de LuneMoulin Rouge!
Have seen Choir Boy, Network, TKAM, and The Prom so far. Have tickets for Moulin Rouge as well. I am PRAYING I can make it this spring for Burn This, Gary, and Ink. All 3 look incredible in their own right. May catch Jagged Little Pill depending on the reviews.

Very impressive lists some of you have! I’m sooooo jealous. I do feel honored to be able to visit Broadway a couple of times a year and see these shows. All of my friends and co-workers get so fired up and energized when I talk about my trips and the shows I have booked, what’s coming to Broadway, and when helping them plan a trip. One of my friends, who has never been to NYC, is going in July for four days and I’ve been chatting it up with her on musicals she would probably enjoy. So many options, so little time. :)
