From the music and merch of ''Pippin'' and ''Kinky Boots'' to tickets to ''Once'' and ''Spider-Man'', these gift ideas are perfect for the Broadway geek in your life.
THEATERMANIA TICKET DISCOUNTS
Purchase tickets to the best of Broadway, off-Broadway, and more on TheaterMania's website. Discounts are available for in-demand shows from Spider-Man to Once to Mamma Mia!, and many more. (Shameless self-promotion, obviously, but the deals are actually pretty awesome!)
NEWSIES NEWSBOY CAP
Extra! Extra! Look like one of Broadway's newsies in this newsboy cap, embroidered on the back with the logo for the popular Disney musical. Who knows? Someone might even mistake you for Jeremy Jordan.
KINKY BOOTS VOCAL SELECTIONS
Grab your favorite piano-playing friend and show off your high notes (and high heels) with the Kinky Boots vocal selections, the 164-page songbook containing all of the sheet music for Cyndi Lauper's 2013 Tony Award-winning score.
THE JOE ICONIS ROCK AND ROLL JAMBOREE CAST RECORDING
If you couldn't get enough of the Joe Iconis ditty "Broadway, Here I Come" when it was on TV's Smash, you'll just adore this rollicking album of songs by the rising musical-theater composer. And we bet you'll sob like a baby when you get up to the E.T.-inspired "Goodbye Song." Merry Christmas!
STOMP TRASH CAN
You can't actually throw waste in it (at least not very much), but this commemorative Stomp miniature trash can is great for those moments when you want to make a lot of noise by banging on garbage cans — but probably shouldn't.
Help your favorite vocal athlete stay in tip-top shape (and at the peak of Broadway style) with this Once-branded scarf. That special "girl" or "guy" who has "suffered enough" in the cold New York winter is sure to want this cozy green scarf.
TICKETMASTER GIFT CARD
A Ticketmaster Gift Card is the perfect way to give the gift of Broadway when you have no idea whether the recipient of your gift would prefer seeing Orlando Bloom in Romeo and Juliet or the Wizard of Oz-inspired hit Wicked. Those Broadway shows plus many more (and even concerts from Miley to Cher) are available.
GIANT CAST ALBUM
One of the best new musical scores in years is captured on the majestic cast recording of Michael John LaChiusa's Giant, featuring Brian d'Arcy James, Kate Baldwin, and what sounds like an orchestra of thousands. When you're finished listening, head over to this link to watch our behind-the-scenes documentary about the show's days in the studio.
HANDS ON A HARDBODY CAST RECORDING
Just because Hands on a Hardbody is no longer on Broadway doesn't mean you can't "keep your hands on it." The show's original Broadway cast recording, which uses the word "truck" no fewer than 68 times, is available for purchase. Plus, you can learn more amazing Hands on a Hardbody statistics here and use them to amaze your friends.
THE BERENSTAIN BEARS DOLL
Who among us has never wished we could bring our favorite Broadway character home? If your tiny theater enthusiast loved The Berenstain Bears LIVE!, they can do just that with this plushy Papa Bear Doll. Plus, there's a Mama Bear too, so you can have that Groundhog Day present all lined up.
"It's possible"…to look stylish while drinking coffee. You won't need a fairy godmother to get rid of those dark circles when you have all the magic of Cinderella at your fingertips every time you take a sip.
THE WINSLOW BOY T-SHIRT
For the rabblerousing politico in your family comes this Winslow Boy t-shirt, emblazoned with the drama's mantra, "Let Right Be Done." Perfect for union rallies and picket-line protests.
MACBETH COOKING SPOON
Keep your potions coalesced with a Shakespearean flair by using this bamboo cooking spoon. It bears the logo for the current Broadway production of Macbeth (starring Ethan Hawke) and the famous phrase, "Double, double, toil and trouble..."
PIPPIN CAST RECORDING
The holiday season is the most magical time of year. With all that "magic to do," you're going to need a little musical inspiration. The new Broadway cast recording of Pippin, featuring Tony Award winner Patina Miller and more, is just the ticket.
THEATERMANIA GOLD CLUB
If you know someone who loves theater, they'll love TheaterMania's Gold Club. Members receive complimentary or deeply discounted offers (a $4.50 per ticket service fee applies) for an entire year of theater, comedy, and more entertainment for a night on the town around New York City.
