Musical Theatre Shows I Talk About
Normally I would link to where you can stream the show’s cast album, watch a movie version of it (if it exists) or even get tickets for it (if it’s on Broadway, West End or has a big tour going). I’m too lazy for that right now so I’ll just list the shows I mentioned in the episode (that I can remember). Not all of these are shows I love, and there are lots more musicals I do love that I didn’t mention.
The Phantom of the Opera, Rent, Les Miserables, Cats, Hamilton, Wicked, Hairspray, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, Cabaret, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Six, Hadestown, Nathasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.
Trust me there are lots more musicals I love that I didn’t mention. I could add every Sondheim musical to the list of musicals I love. There are lots of musicals I love.
If you love musicals try to see them whenever you can. But also don’t forget to support community theatre and school productions of these show. They help support local theatre and the arts, fostering creativity and much more. Support theatre and the arts.
Musical Theatre Related Podcasts & YouTube Channels I Love
Musicalsplaining Podcast. I haven’t listened to this podcast yet this year, but every past episode I’ve loved. Even if I disagree with one of the host’s position or ideas I usually learn something and can understand why that person felt or thought about that musical that they did. Great podcast definitely give it a listen.
Drinks and a Show Pod. I accidentally called this Two Drinks And A Show Pod in this episode.
Howard Ho Youtube. His videos are always great. Wondering why you’re bawling your eyes out in Hamilton? Check this playlist.
The Musicologist. This is the video about motifs I mentioned. This isn’t about musicals, he usually talks about film scores or classical music, but there is some overlap (not always) between these art forms and musical theatre.
12Tone Youtube. Not musical theatre related but if you’re interested in western music theory it’s an interesting channel. One of my favourite videos is Understanding The Man Who Sold The World.
Wait In The Wings YouTube. I totally forgot to mention this channel in the episode. He does great episodes about specific musicals and broader topics in musical theatre. His episode on the fake Steve Rogers musical (think it was shown in the tv series Hawkeye) is great.
Lindsay Ellis YouTube. As mention this YouTube channel won’t be making new content. Although this channel is mostly about film and filmmaking (and those were really interesting to watch) there are great episode about musicals (usually movie musicals) including this one about Phantom and this one about Rent. Her videos are long usually 30+ minutes, and in depth so if you are short on time here’s a great video I recommend.
Musical Theatre Related Websites I Love
Reddit Musicals and Reddit Musical Theatre. Both of these subreddits are great places to go if you want to talk 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 resource for anyone who loves musicals. They have an alphabetical list of over 300 musicals, and you can look up musicals by different categories like “based on a book” and “based on real life.” For anyone or any theatre company looking to put on a musical, you can check out the Rights page, which has information on where to get the rights to put on a variety of 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 cities like New York, London, Toronto, Chicago, and several others. I used this app with great success in London and highly recommend it.
Use the Code JGZYL to save £10 (or $10) on your first order with Today Tix.
The link for today tix will give me a small commission if you buy a ticket from them, but it won’t cost you extra.
And if you read this far thanks very much for listening to this episode, and maybe even listening to an episode or two from the past. You can always go here to listen to past episodes of this podcast, and find resources for the shows I mention (where to listen to the album, see the show if possible, etc).
Have a great day.
