the few who did not know the story just know that the story is centered on the relationship between 2 sister princesses, Elsa and Anna.
The first has such magical powers as to allow her to turn everything she touches into ice; unfortunately he cannot control them and this causes the transformation of the entire kingdom into a realm of ice destined to remain in a perennial winter. Together with the snowman Olaf, his friend Kristoff and the reindeer Sven, Anna sets out in search of her sister, who fled into exile after the kingdom froze.
More than surprising special effects, this musical focuses on the beauty of the music of the costumes and sets, as well as on its moving story. During its Broadway debut year (2018) the musical received notable accolades including the Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Libretto and Best Original Score and Drama Desk Award for Best Actor and Puppet Design on stage.
Cats is another incredibly successful Broadway musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the events told in a book by the American poet Thomas Stearns Eliot, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. It is a completely crazy musical, full of characteristic and unforgettable characters: needless to say, they are all cats and one more eccentric than the other … you will have the opportunity to get to know them all, because they will present themselves one by one singing and dancing during their traditional annual dance party, while their delicate and poetic surreal story unfolds.
The song that made Cats known all over the world is Memory, sung by Grizabella, a melancholy cat who tries to persuade the cats of the Jellicle neighborhood to admit her back to their group, after having gone away. I was bewitched by the ironic and dreamy look of the songs and the impressive care of the costumes and choreographies, which manage to recreate a nocturnal world where cats stage their tragicomic events, with an ending that opens the heart. After all, the fact that the plot of the musical is taken from a book of poems is an incredible guarantee of quality for me! The show is suitable for everyone, young and old, and especially for lovers of cats and poetry.

Finally, we conclude our roundup of Broadway shows with Wicked, one of the newest musicals on the New York theater scene, but already capable of achieving excellent results from critics and audiences, as well as a large number of reruns. What is Wicked about? In fact, some of you will prick up your ears to hear that the story is set in the Kingdom of Oz: the musical is in fact inspired by Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, which has in turn revisited the famous book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
As you can imagine, the costumes, sets and stage effects of this Broadway musical are inspired by a fantasy world of witches, wizards and bizarre characters, but the story itself has all the credentials to thrill every kind of spectator: is the story of Elphaba, the famous Wicked Witch of the West, told from the point of view of her friend Witch Glinda. How did it go in truth? Really Elphaba, marginalized as a child for the green color of her skin, was she so evil? Between love affairs, tragic events, quarrels between friends and dramatic choices of freedom, the musical teaches us to look at close people with less superficiality. From a scenic point of view, what made the show famous is undoubtedly the quality of the songs, which have a great emotional impact, in addition to the sensational stage apparatus (a real world) and the plot of the story itself, full of suspense, irony, sentiment and twists.
