It was recently announced that some Broadway musicals will be touring here in Los Angeles. A current musical that is in Los Angeles is Hamilton which is playing at the Pantages Theatre through the end of the year. This musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founders of America. Hamilton is running in 3 cities at the moment; New York (Richard Rodgers Theater), Chicago (Private Bank Theater), and Los Angeles (Pantages Theater). My experience seeing Hamilton was an incredible experience that I will never forget. Each actor had a unique and prominent voice, causing the musical to come together so well. Solea Pffeifer portrayed the role of Eliza Hamilton and Ryan Vasquez played the role of Alexander Hamilton. These were my two personal favorites, as they both had voices that stood out from the rest of the cast. Emmy Raver (The actress that portrayed Angelica Schuyler), had such a beautiful voice. Her performance of “Satisfied” was so strong that you could feel the pain that Angelica was feeling in her decision. Overall seeing Hamilton was so much fun, and I definitely recommend the show to everyone.

The musicals that are coming here next are: Aladdin, Waitress, and Dear Evan Hansen. First up is Aladdin which will be touring here from January 10 through March 31 (2018). This is a musical interpretation of the classic Disney movie Aladdin, which will be playing at the Pantages. Aladdin is currently running in Minneapolis and the actor portraying Aladdin is Telly Leung. After Aladdin comes Waitress. The musical will be touring in LA from August 2 to August 26, also at the Pantages. Waitress is based off of a movie from 2007, a story about a waitress’s life that changes after she finds out some shocking news. Waitress is playing in New York right now and the actress portraying Jenna (the main character) is Betsy Wolfe. After Waitress closes in Los Angeles, the musical that will be opening at the Pantages has not been decided yet. The Dear Evan Hansen national tour is coming LA in the fall of 2018, and it will be showing at the Ahmanson Theater. Dear Evan Hansen is an original story about a boy named Evan who struggles with social anxiety, until “a letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.” – Dear Evan Hansen Official Website. Dear Evan Hansen is playing in New York as well and the actor portraying the character of Evan Hansen is Ben Platt. These are some of the musicals that are going to be showing in Los Angeles!
