Broadway’s newest smash sensation, Dear Evan Hansen, made history in February when its cast album had the highest debut on the Billboard charts for a cast recording since 1961, opening at No. 8. As a thank-you to the show’s many fans, producers released a new video, “Making our Original Broadway Cast Recording.” Check out the video below!
Breaking news, Broadway lovers! Next season’s revival of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Once on This Island has just announced an international casting search to find the production’s heroine, Ti Moune. There will be open call auditions in seven major cities throughout the United States and Haiti! Original Ti Moune and Broadway favorite LaChanze (If/Then, The Color Purple) made a video to announce the search! Watch the video below and then go to their website to find out how YOU can audition to star in next season’s revival.
Once on This Island is the Broadway musical celebration that sweeps us across the sea to a small village—where, in the aftermath of a great storm, a joyous new life begins.
It is the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures threaten to keep them apart, Ti Moune, guided by the island gods, sets out on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms and dance, the story comes to vibrant life through the score by Tony Award® winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime). The striking production by Tony Award-nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival) transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.
Come and gather around for Once on This Island—a triumph of the timeless power of theater to bring us together, move our hearts, and help us conquer life’s storms. This is why we tell the story.
The incredible voice behind smash hit “Let it Go” and the star of Frozen, Wicked, Rent, and If/Then will kick off her 2017 world tour at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on Friday, April 7th. Beloved for bringing her irresistible charm, wit and unparalleled vocal prowess to venues across the world, Idina will perform material from her brand new self-titled album, as well as her most popular hits.

Check out the new TV spot for Amélie!
Amélie captured our hearts in the five-time Academy Award-nominated 2001 French film. Now she comes to the stage in an inventive and captivating new musical directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Clybourne Park), with a book by three-time Tony Award nominee Craig Lucas (An American in Paris), music by Daniel Messé (Hem), lyrics by Nathan Tysen (Tuck Everlasting) and Daniel Messé, and musical staging and choreography by Sam Pinkleton (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812).
The musical follows the mesmerizing journey of the inquisitive and charmingly shy Amélie who turns the streets of Montmartre into a world of her own imagining, while secretly orchestrating moments of joy for those around her. After discovering a mysterious photo album and meeting a handsome stranger, Amélie realizes that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.
Broadway’s Amélie stars Hamilton’s Tony-nominated Phillipa Soo and is currently in previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre, with an official opening scheduled for April 3rd. Group tickets are now on sale through October 1st, 2017, with prices starting as low as $39.50 for groups of 12+. Let Your Broadway Genius help you book your tickets for the next Broadway hit!

Broadway isn’t the only place to find captivating theatre. Off-Broadway is home to many exciting shows and has also served as a launching pad for some of Broadway’s biggest hits. Roundabout Theatre Company has two shows currently running in their Off-Broadway space, the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, that we think you’ll enjoy:
If I Forget
In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.
From Steven Levenson, acclaimed writer of Dear Evan Hansen and Roundabout’s The Language of Trees, comes If I Forget, a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can’t avoid and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.
In the video above, watch the cast of If I Forget, including TV’s Kate Walsh (Private Practice) and Tony nominees Larry Bryggman (Proof), Maria Dizzia (Orange is the New Black), and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park).
If I Forget is playing at the Laura Pels Theatre through April 30, 2017.
On the Exhale
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland, reasons to be pretty) finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime – and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem.
Roundabout Underground presents On the Exhale, a provocative world premiere from Martin Zimmerman (Netflix’s Narcos), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Well, Roundabout’s Violet). Staged with propulsive, heart-pounding intensity in Roundabout’s intimate Black Box Theatre, this grippingly immediate story draws you into the white-hot center of our country’s most divisive – and most urgent – debate.
In the video above, watch star Marin Ireland (Amazon’s Sneaky Pete) discuss On the Exhale.
On the Exhale is playing at Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre through April 2, 2017.
Group tickets start at $30 for If I Forget and $20 for On the Exhale for groups of 10+. To book your tickets today, call Your Broadway Genius at 877-943-2929.

Bandstand, the new American musical, begins previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 31, with opening night set for April 26. Check out this teaser while you wait for this new, swingin’ musical to arrive on Broadway!
Bandstand brings the swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage.
When a national contest to find America’s next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer, and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power.
Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award® winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), starring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and featuring an explosive original score, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.
