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.
