There are many lovely, romantic shows currently playing on Broadway that would make a great date night for any couple. A classic like Phantom of the Opera is a must-see; with its love triangle and romantic Opera House setting, this story of desperation and heartbreak tugs at the heartstrings and will bring any couple closer. Wicked, a more contemporary classic, shows what happened to the Wicked Witch of the West, of the story of the Wizard of Oz, before she was so notorious. Its easy plot, spectacular sets and special effects, and sensational music has made Wicked absolutely the most popular Broadway show for nearly the last ten years.
The 2007 Academy Award-Winning movie Once has also been recently made into a Broadway musical, with the hit song “Falling Slowly” and the same romantic story of longing love. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Cyrano de Bergerac is a very classic comedy about a shy, awkward man using his long-nosed friend to woo his beloved Roxanne. It is an excellent choice for couples who prefer a classic theater experience. Finally, although it isn’t a romantic musical, The Book of Mormon will have couples laughing so hard and quoting so many lines that it is a bonding experience for anyone. There’s nothing better than having a good laugh and enjoying a good show with the person you love.
