1. Aries – Anastasia
Aries (born March 21 – April 19) are said to be courageous, optimistic, active, open, spontaneous, and dedicated. These traits accurately describe the passionate heroine of the musical Anastasia, who embarks on an epic adventure to unravel the mysteries of her past.
2. Taurus – Wicked
Taurus (born April 20 – May 20) are said to be ambitious, tenacious, sensual, and to have an eye for beauty. Same could be said of the two Witches of Oz in Wicked, Elphaba and Glinda. The women (and their unlikely friendship) encapsulate the fierce combination of earth and fire traits at the heart of a true Taurus.
3. Gemini – The Little Foxes
Quick-witted, sociable, and expressive Gemini’s (born May 21 – June 21) are also famously duplicitous. So is Regina Hubbard Giddens of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, who goes to great lengths to satisfy her personal and financial ambitions. The current Broadway production of this classic play is now even more fitting for the Twin sign, as the roles of Regina and her sister-in-law Birdie are alternated by powerhouse actresses Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon.
4. Cancer – War Paint
Cancers (born June 22 – July 22) are very emotional, highly imaginative, and tenacious. Perhaps their best quality is their hardworking nature. These traits make War Paint the perfect show for Cancers. The new musical dramatizes the story of Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden (played by Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole), two women who helped define beauty and revolutionize the role women played in 20th Century society.
5. Leo – Kinky Boots
Leo’s (born July 23 – August 22) are warm, confident, attention-seeking, and love to be loved. They evoke the spirit of the fabulous hit musical Kinky Boots, which features the music of the legendary artist Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony-winning theater legend Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography of the beloved Jerry Mitchell.
6. Virgo – The Phantom of the Opera
Virgos (born August 23 – September 22) are said to be loyal, careful, shy, tender, and at times, obsessive. The title character of the long-running smash hit The Phantom of the Opera would very likely be a Virgo, making this unforgettable musical and it’s haunting love story a good fit for this sign.
7. Libra – Amélie
Polite, gentle, and kind Libras (born September 23 – October 22) are lovers of beauty and harmony. The quiet Parisian heroine Amélie embodies these characteristics while on her imaginative mission to bring joy and love to the hectic world around her.
8. Scorpio – Chicago
Scorpios (born October 23 – November 21) and powerful, fierce, ambitious, and commanding. Scorpios also posses an effortless magnetic charm. These traits are on full display in the multiple Tony Award-winning musical as the fame-and-fortune seeking inhabitants of 1920’s Chicago strut their stuff, Fosse style.
9. Sagittarius – Hello, Dolly!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) are known extroverts who are “ready to move out in front.” Outgoing, curious, and energetic, Sagittarius are a good fit for Dolly Levi, the title character currently being played by the extraordinary Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly!
10. Capricorn – The Book of Mormon
Capricorn (born December 21 to January 19) are said to be helpful, dependable, conservative, and determined. These are traits shared with Elder Price, the good-hearted (if not overly ambitious) missionary-to-be at the center of the hit musical The Book of Mormon.
11. Aquarius – School of Rock
The fun-loving, unpredictable, and imaginative Aquarians (born January 20 – February 18) are the perfect fit for the energetic musical sensation School of Rock. Based off the film of the same name, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who’s got a few crazy ideas up his sleeve.
12. Pisces – Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
Pisces (born February 19 – March 20) are said to be imaginative, mysterious, generous, and to have a knack for artistic talent. Much could be said of Willy Wonka, the genius behind the weird and wonderful chocolate factory that young Charlie wins a life-changing tour to in the musical phenomenon, Roald Dahl’s Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.
