It’s that magical time of year when we have to find just the right gift for our special someone for Valentine’s Day or you celebrate the 15th of February and treat yourself to bags and bags of clearance candy. No matter which day you choose to celebrate, both days are about that one special word: Love. Those of us that have a fondness for musical theatre know there’s no shortage of romantic songs that grace our stages. Here’s a little sampling of some favorites that leave us with the warm and fuzzies.

Selecting your next show or full season, is an exciting, inspiring time for your whole organization. Careful consideration of a title’s audience appeal, technical and design requirements, casting challenges and other concerns make choosing shows an art unto itself.
While the need to consistently achieve high ticket sales is a common theme, artistic directors and producers try to select titles that will connect with their communities as well. Considering stories that will take their communities on new musical adventures together. In the educational and community theatre arena, the experience of the student or volunteer actors and techies is as important as the outcome of the show.
We’ve selected nine Broadway musicals, available for licensing for 2015-16, that can help inform your choice.
