Honestly, I have no idea. I guess it deals with family struggles and mental illness.

Aaron Tveit of Hairspray is in it as well.

Re: 2009 shows


Well the Tony nominations came out today hopefully that will help you figure out whats good.

Personally, I love Rock of Ages but its got the 80s music I grew up with and its a bit racey with strippers and such so I dont know if its right for you.

Hair's also got full nudity in it so you might wanna keep that in mind if youre going with parents or little kids or something.

West Side Story is probably a good show for a family outing, if theyre anything like mine, they loved the movie so theyll like seeing something familiar.

Re: 2009 shows


The new shows i have seen are:

HAIR
Rock of Ages
Next To Normal
9 to 5


Rock of Ages / Hair / N2N were all fantastic. Loved all 3 of them. Didn't really enjoy 9 to 5 which surprised me. I was also sitting in like orch row W which wasn't a good seat IMO. i enjoy being in the front, i feel like im more in on the action happening onstage haha.
Rock of ages i was front row, N2N i was 2nd row and hair i was 3rd row...wasnt use to sitting so far back which is why i probably didnt enjoy it (and yes, it is proven i dont enjoy shows while sitting far away..ie: grease..first time sat 2nd row mezz..loved it. 2nd time sat back row mezz, all the way on right....hated it..hated every minute of it. felt isolated! haha)

I'd recommend ROA if you like rock music. it is HILARIOUS. i was laughing the entire show and the cast is great! includes one of hairsprays alumni (tour alumni i think..) jeremy woddard

HAIR is not really something you'd want to see with your parents. full nudity, for about a minute. i personally am mature enough (not to sound cocky) to handle what went on, but some people might not be. i love the music and the cast is phenominal. hairspray alum caissie levy is starring in it as shelia.

N2N = going to win the tony award...haha. so it IS that good.
