Guys. December is upon us. I don’t know about you, but I think 2014 has flown by! Before we welcome in 2015, take some time to get out and enjoy a little theatre. You just might be inspired to make a big leap into the new year by trying something new yourself. If we don’t change as individuals how can we expect to see any change in our world? So, in between checking out new theatre, go out there and do your part to change the theatre scene and give the shot of diversity that reflects the world we see and even the world we hope for! Who knows? We just might be writing about you and your new work in 2015!

NYC:

  • Disenchanted

As much as I love a good romantic fairytale, I’m all about keeping it real. When I was in college my friends and I would occassionally have a Disney movie night. It occureed to us that maybe, just maybe, Disney won with their lies about fairytale romances. Disenchanted takes a look at some of our favorite princesses and gives their story with a little less sugar and a little more salt. Basically, these women are going to keep it 100! Sounds like an awesome chance to hear great music and maybe have a laugh or two.

  • Motown Legends

If you love Motown: The Musical, why not see some of the legends the show is based upon live on Broadway? The Temptations and The Four Tops open the musical and they are headlining this concert at the Palace Theatre.

  • Radio City Christmas Spectacular

The Christmas Spectacular is an age old NYC tradition. If you’re in town you don’t want to miss it! High kicks, dazzling sets, live animals, great voices, and a beautiful orchestra. Plus the Rockettes seem to be getting more and more diverse with each year that goes by!

  • Five Guys Named Moe

Director Robert O’Hara is taking the Five Guys Named Moe we know and giving it a touch of the 21st century. I’ve always thought Five Guys Named Moe was a fun and cute show, but sexy never crossed my mind. However,  with this new cast, with all that the director shares in his Playbill interview, and the clip on Broadway World, I’m thinking we all may have a new way of describing this show.
