Theater Shows to Satisfy Even the Most Ardent Movie Fan

For the avid movie fan, the idea of going to the theater can take some persuading. However, when hearing rave reviews from friends who’ve just come back from a screen-to-stage adaptation, their interest is often piqued.

If this sounds like you and you’ve found yourself curious about what the theatres have to offer when there’s a quiet period at the movies, then here are three theater shows that any movie buff with surely love.

Rock On!

Rock of Ages has returned for a limited run through to early January 2020. It’s one to see for anyone who enjoyed the movie of the same name but felt a live production would have been more impressive.

With classic songs and fan favorites like “I Wanna Know What Love Is” and “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” there’s plenty to get you singing along with the crowd.

In its original run, Rock of Ages was nominated for a Tony Award no less than five times. It’s a musical extravaganza with rock ‘n’ roll underpinnings and a romantic storyline to keep things interesting. Running at the New World Stages on 340 West 50th Street in New York, the over 2-hour running time will keep you on the edge of your seat, even if you’re more of a movie person than a theater one.

Can You Hear Me Roar?

The Lion King, based on the beloved Disney movie, is touring in theaters across the U.S. currently as a lively musical. First seen on the stage 25 years ago, the latest production values will keep audiences happy.

If you’re a big kid who would love to see actors portraying the many wonderful characters from the Disney movie, you’re in for a big treat. The musical production is spending time over a series of dates in Boston, New York, Louisville and the Grand Rapids in Michigan.

Music and lyrics include contributions from movie composer Hans Zimmer as well as Elton John and others. Lyrics are by Tim Rice, who has an extensive pedigree in the theater with many productions over several decades.

The Wicked Witch of the West is Back!

Anyone who’s a fan of the Wizard of Oz knows all about the dastardly Wicked Witch who heralds from the West… She has surely struck fear into children and a good few adults too!

Such is the dramatic promise of the Wicked musical production. In a time before Dorothy walked in the Land of Oz, a new girl with green skin and a fiery personality will capture your attention. Featuring excellent songs and winning rave reviews from The New York Times and Time Magazine, the Gershwin Theatre in New York is the place to enjoy all the drama and spectacle of a trip back to Oz.

Once you’ve been bitten by the theater bug, there will be no going back. You’ll return humming the best songs and waiting for the next exciting production you can grab tickets for. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
