Broadway Holiday Hoopla With Fa-La-La GaloreDecember 2, 2011 - by Griffin Miller
Seasonal sentiment aside, no matter which particular holidays light up your festive life, “gifting” is pretty much a given. And nothing -- I reiterate, nothing -- tops theatre tickets for generating smiles, kisses, high-fives and the happiest of memories.
The trick, of course, is matching the right show to the right recipient. And so, here’s a Broadway shopping list compliments of the pixilated elves at City Guide! See our theater listings here for theater info, tickets, and more.
For Scary Aunt Mary (with twelve toes & eyes in the back of her head): The Addams Family
For Teens, Tweens (& those who would be dazzled): Godspell; How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (with Daniel Radcliffe until Jan. 1; Nick Jonas from Jan. 24); Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark; War Horse (above); Wicked
For Paparazzi Wannabes: An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin (above); The Mountaintop (Samuel L. Jackson; Angela Bassett); On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (Harry Connick Jr.); Private Lives (Kim Cattrall); Relatively Speaking (too many to mention); Seminar (Alan Rickman)
For Catholic School Survivors: Sister Act
For the Very Well-Heeled: Hugh Jackman, Back On Broadway (above; so sold out that only premium ka-ching tickets are available).
