Beaches: The Musical

Broadway Across Canada. This is who is putting on the touring production of Hadestown that I saw, and the upcoming shows of Mean Girls, and Hairspray.

Citadel Theatre. This is where I saw Six: The Musical, and Little Shop of Horrors. I also saw the play of Pride and Prejudice, which I totally forgot to mention in the episode but that was great. The Citadel always puts on great shows in Edmonton.

Crow’s Theatre. This is the theatre in Toronto where I’m seeing Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812.

Dammitammy Productions. This is the local theatre production company that put on Scoobie Doosical. While I don’t know if that musical will get put on for the 2024 Fringe Festival I’ll definitely recommend seeing any Dammitammy show. They’re always a lot of fun.

Edmonton Fringe Festival. This is where you can find information and get tickets (in August) for shows at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival. They also have shows throughout the year.

Hadestown. This is the website to buy tickets for the Broadway production of Hadestown at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

MacEwan University Theatre Season. This is the University that put on [Title of Show] and the upcoming shows of Legally Blonde, Twelfth Night, and Sunday in the Park with George. Season passes are about $65 for the season so it’s a great deal and a good way to support the arts and theatre in Edmonton.

Rapid Fire Theatre. This is a an improv comedy theatre that puts on several shows at The Fringe including the two improv shows I saw OffBook and Gordon’s Big Bald Head. They also do improv shows throughout the year.

Six: The Musical. This is where you can get tickets for major productions of Six including the Broadway run and tours.

Straight Edge Theatre. This is the production company that put on Krampus: A New Musical that I saw at the 2023 Fringe Festival. I also saw their original show Conjoined: A New Musical at last year’s Fringe too. Highly recommend seeing any of their shows if they’re at the 2024 Fringe.

Reddit Musicals and Reddit Musical Theatre. Both subreddits are great places to learn about musicals, get tips (if you’re a performer), and to get recommendations on shows to check out.

Broadway Musical Home. This is a great website with a list of over 300 musicals. The Rights page has information on where to get the rights to put on a variety of musicals. Concord Theatricals and Musical Theatre International are the two main companies to license musicals.

Playbill has a listing for shows (musicals and plays) in New York, London and National Tours.

Today Tix has an App for both iOS and Android. You can use the app to buy cheap, same-day tickets for shows in several cities like New York, London, and more. I’ve used this app in London and highly recommend it.
