More Theater Monday* - Broadway Shows to See Before They Close!

In the next few weeks, unfortunately quite a few Broadway shows will be closing so here is a comprehensive list of shows to see before they close:


1) The Prom- This touching show is full of heart,  has a great message, and the songs are memorable too. You won't want to miss Caitlin Kinnuen's Tony nominated  heartwrenching performance in the lead role.  For our view of The Prom visit Theater Thursday - The Prom. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to https://theprommusical.com. This show will close on August 11.


2) Pretty Woman - Whether you love the movie, Pretty Woman or you just love a sweet romantic story, you won't want to miss this show. The songs by rockstar, Bryan Adams are great too, and they even added the old familiar song, Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison to the score. For our view of Pretty Woman, go to Theater Thursday - Pretty Woman.  For more information or to purchase, tickets, visit https://prettywomanthemusical.com. This show will close on August 18.


3) The Cher Show - This tribute to an icon is more than just a vanity project. It is the story of a woman coming  out from under the thumb of the men in her life and into her own power, and it is a perfect story for today's world. You won't want to miss the tremenduous performances by all three actresses playing Cher especially that of the Tony winning, Stephanie J. Block. For our view of The Cher Show, go to Theater Thursday - The Cher Show. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit https://thechershowbroadway.com/. This show will close on August 18. 


4) Be More Chill - This show is more than just a viral sensation for teenagers. At it's heart it is about being oneself and not trying to be like others to fit in, this is a message we all can often use even when we are long past being a teenager. The songs are fun and catchy. For our view of Be More Chill, go to Theater Thursday - Be More Chill. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit  https://bemorechillmusical.com.  This show will close on August 11.


5) King Kong- Although there is not much plot here and most of the songs are not particularly memorable, if you want to see the incredible puppetry that brings King Kong to life, you won't want to miss this show.  For our view of this show, go to Theater Thursday - King Kong. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit  https://kingkongbroadway.com.  This show will close on August 18.
