With the celebration of love and friendship fast approaching, we have decided to share with you five popular Valentine’s Day Musicals to look out for and go watch with a significant other or a dear friend.
Honeymoon in Vegas:
This musical follows a regular guy named Jack with a fear of marriage who ends up building up courage to ask his girlfriend, Betsy, hand in marriage. However, after arriving in Las Vegas to wed, a dashing gambler falls in love with Betsy and threatens to take her away to live luxuriously with him.
A mismatched pair goes on a blind date after being set up by a mutual friend. Throughout the course of their date, their exes and other surprising personas visit them through their imaginations. In the end, sparks may or may not fly.
This is a classic coming-of-age, 60’s musical of 17 year-old ‘Baby’ who goes to a resort with her family during summer vacation. While having a hard time finding activities that interested her, she finally finds her source of entertainment through raunchy dancing.
This musical, very much like the indie film of the same name, follows the story of two completely different men, Charlie and Lola, who find valuable friendship within each other after coming up with the brilliant idea of creating “kinky boots” for men. Eventually, it helps keep Charlie’s family’s shoe factory business alive.
West Side Story:
Based off of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” this musical takes place in 1950s Manhattan while being dominated by rival gangs, Sharks and Jets. While at a dance, Jets’ good-boy Tony and Sharks’ sister Maria fall in love. Throughout the musical, these two lovers try to find a way to be together while tensions begin to escalate between the rival gangs.
