The performing arts community was one of the industries that were hit the hardest following lockdowns around the world. There have been plenty of petitions and donation projects happening throughout the year to try and support them, and now that the world is slowly beginning to reopen and we are returning to some state of normalcy, theatres need you now more than ever. A lot of people end up avoiding theaters, especially musicals because they think it is limited to a single genre, which is not the case. You can find all kinds of musicals which cover a range of musical genres, from classical to a hip-hop blended musical and so on.
You will have to go in with an open mind if you want to have fun, because like anything else in life when we walk into a situation with preconceived notions, it will only cloud our judgement. You can find musicals that are historical in a context like Hamilton, Les Miserables, and so on. Similarly, you can find options like Grease, The Lion King, Sweeny Todd and so on. Some many local theatres and performers put their spin on their rendition of these musicals. There is no guarantee that you will walk out of every performance completely happy, but with some time, you can figure out what you like, and then actively narrow down your search the next time you are going through different options you can go for.
If you are looking to get into and support the local musical theatre scene in your area, you can look up what performances different theaters have scheduled and book whichever one catches your eye or has good reviews. Once you do find something that catches your attention, then you will find yourself hooked to it, such as the beauty of witnessing the performing arts.
