After a year of cancellations, Broadway in Boise opened this weekend with the iconic and Tony award-winning “Cats.” The rest of this season’s line-up features many award winning musicals. 

“Hamilton” runs from Dec. 8-26. 

The groundbreaking musical written by Lin-Manuel Miranda almost needs no introduction. It tells the story of Alexander Hamilton through songs which bend the genre of “Broadway” by blending hip-hop, jazz and R&B. The show won multiple awards including Tonys, Grammys and a Pulitzer Prize in dDrama. Tickets for the show are currently on sale. 

“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” runs from Jan. 14-16. 

This musical is based on the children’s novel by Roald Dahl and features the popular song “Pure Imagination” from the 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” The show won four Laurence Olivier Awards in 2021. Tickets for the show are currently on sale.

“Anastasia” runs from Feb. 25-27.

Based on the 1997 animated film, “Anatasia” adapts the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia. The Morrison Center website says, “this dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s.” Tickets for this show will go on sale in the near future.

“Dear Evan Hansen” runs from June 21-26.

“Dear Evan Hansen” was recently adapted into a feature film. The original musical won the Tony award for Best Musical in 2017 and continues to be loved by many. The story follows the 17-year-old Evan Hansen and his “chance to finally fit in.” Tickets for this show will go on sale in the near future.
