There's no better cure for boredom than a group of people breaking out into song and dance. In ordinary life, that would be strange and random -- especially since flash mobs are no longer a thing -- but in the theater, it's a sheer marvel. We enjoy the songs that tell stories we can relate to, or the ballads that sing of heartache similar to ones we've felt. Simply put: we go to the theater to escape our own reality and step into an altered version of someone else's.

Although our Miami theater scene is ever growing, it's still a rush when big Broadway productions make their way down south and give us a taste of what's brewing in the big apple. Check out the best Broadway musicals passing through our city this year:

Upcoming Events

Motown: The Musical, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, February 24-March 8

The Motown movement of the 1960s and '70s ushered in a revival of music that forever influenced the sounds of today's pop, gospel, and soul. Dedicated to the man who founded the Motown record label, Motown: The Musical, is based off the autobiography by Barry Gordy himself.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, February 26-April 19

Imagine a musical comedy about your worst fears: being up in front of a large audience and asked to spell some really complicated words. Organized into one, long act, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will make you realize that life is pandemonium.

Wicked, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, March 11-29

Don't pretend like you don't already know all the words to "Defy Gravity" and "Popular." Now in March, you'll be able to (quietly) sing along when Wicked flys into the Arsht Center to tell the story of the Wicked Witch before that pesky house fell on her.

Pippin, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, March 30-April 12

The backdrop for this coming-of-age tale is a spectacular traveling circus where Pippin must discover who he really is and what he wants out of life. Think of it as Cirque du Soleil but in English with a storyline that's much easier to follow.

Sister Act, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, April 14-19

Cos', baby, there ain't no mountain high enough to keep us away from this musical.

Rent, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, April 30-May 3

A musical about a bunch of artist-types living in New York City who can't make enough money to afford rent -- now that sounds like a storyline that doesn't need to work hard to be convincing.

Anything Goes, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, May 5-17

It's a story about finding true love aboard a ship full of singing and dancing seamen. There are so many jokes we can insert here, but we're going to leave that up to you, because anything goes! (We're punny and we like it).
