The gift of Broadway will stay with them for years to come

There’s no experience like a live experience. It’s difficult to describe the feeling of being in the audience of a Broadway play. When a company takes a show on the road, they perform with the same enthusiasm and heart as the actors in New York.

It can make your heart soar and break and soar again – but you always feel a live performance. Audiences usually come out smiling.

Simply being in the presence of all that talent a few feet away on a stage in your hometown is a one-of-a-kind event. And many people don’t even realize we have access to that Broadway talent locally.

But you can give them that experience with tickets to a show. If you’re buying for someone who doesn’t need any more knickknacks, a ticket to show makes the perfect gift – one that will stay with them always and doesn’t take up any room on the shelf. Or require dusting!

What could be easier than ordering tickets, online or by phone, to wrap or put in an envelope inside someone’s stocking?

For 62 years, Huntsville’s Broadway Theater League, a non-profit organization, has brought shows annually to Mark C. Smith Concert Hall. The total of shows brought to Huntsville now stands at more than 330!

The plays are chosen each season to entertain a wide audience. The 2021-2022 season includes “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Cats,” “Hairspray,” “The Choir of Man,” “The Simon and Garfunkel Story,” and the “Blue Man Group,” among others.

Broadway Theater League gives Huntsville a wonderful gift. Share it with the people you love.

I can’t stress this enough: ‘Hairspray’ is the upbeat musical we all need right now

That summer, I read that the Tony Award-winning Broadway stage production of “Hairspray” was touring the nation and I decided my daughter and I should go see it. I searched for dates and places we could realistically visit and never found one.
In subsequent years, I searched for notices of a tour several times, but it wasn’t until last fall that I learned the 2022 tour of “Hairspray” was coming to Huntsville’s Von Braun Center on April 1-3, hosted by Broadway Theatre League.

You don’t want to miss ‘Cats’ during its Huntsville run

Legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber apparently thought so, too. The charming mischief makers inspired Webber to write the musical “Cats,” the fourth longest running Broadway play of all time. It has earned more than $3.5 billion to date. Let’s just say its success brought about the phenomenon of the “megamusical.”
