Broadway Shows I Missed This Year

Even though I've been to a bunch of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows this year, there are still so many that I would have liked to have seen.  Alas, there are not enough days in the calendar, hours in the day, or dollars in my bank account for me to see everything.  Here's a list of shows I would have liked to have seen in 2012.


The Anarchist - David Mamet's latest play stars two amazing actresses -- Patti Lupone and Debra Winger.

Annie - I'm going to try to get ticket for my sisters for this revival of a crowd favorite. Even if I can't see it, at least they'll enjoy it.

The Book of Mormon - Tickets are impossible to get without a long wait, but maybe someday I'll see this hit show.

Chaplin: The Musical - I really wanted to see this one, since I'm a big fan of Charlie Chaplin's silent films, and I was curious to see how they turned his life into a staged musical.

A Christmas Story: The Musical - One of my favorite movies was turned into a a musical, and I probably will never see it.

Dead Accounts - This comedy stars Katie Holmes and the always excellent Norbert Leo Butz.

Evita - I've still never seen this Andrew Lloyd Webber classic, and at this rate I don't know when I ever will.

Glengarry Glen Ross - Al Pacino graced the stage in this much hyped revival, but the good seats were too pricey for my budget.

Jersey Boys - The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons!

Mama Mia! - They made a movie out of this ABBA inspired show, and I haven't seen the film nor the musical.

Mary Poppins - I love the original film, and hopefully this show will keep playing until my daughter is a little older so I can take her to see it.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood - I missed the original Broadway run of this show based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickins, and I missed the revival too.

Once - Critically acclaimed, lots of positive word of mouth, yet I still wasn't able to go see this musical.

Peter and the Starcatcher - How could I resist a swashbuckling fantasy show about Peter Pan?  Somehow I did.

Rock of Ages - Tom Cruise's movie adaptation flopped, but the Broadway show is still attracting crowds.

Silence! The Musical - A song and dance adaptation of one of my favorite horror movies, Silence of the Lambs, I'm so curious to see what they did with it.

Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark - I'll eventually have to see what all the hoopla is about.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - Edward Albee's classic drama hits the stage again.

Working - I really wanted to see this updated version playing at the Prospect Theater.

Have you seen any of them?  Let me know what I missed!
