Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Book by Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls & David Henry Hwang
Winner of four Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and betrayal – chronicling the love triangle between Aida: a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris: an Egyptian princess, and Radames: the soldier they both love.
An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh’s daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility she faces as leader of her people. Aida and Radames’ love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
With an unforgettable pop/rock score by Elton John – featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Aida is a modern crowd pleaser that weaves a beautiful and timeless love story.

Based on the beloved New Line Cinema film, Elf The Musical features songs by Tony Award-nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (Disney’s Aladdin On Broadway, The Wedding Singer), with a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
This modern holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
