….Ready For It?
Taylor Swift → Tuesday Night Dance: Line Dancing
Taylor Swift’s debut album originated when young Taylor went into music to pursue a career as a country music artist, not a pop musician. If this is your go-to album, it’s time to channel Taylor’s country roots and get ready to line dance to some iconic country music! Tuesday Night Dance: Line Dancing is here next month, so grab your boots and reserve a spot in this free class here.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) → Disney’s The Lion King
Much like Disney’s The Lion King, Fearless is a megahit of its kind with songs everyone knows and loves. Fearless contains the unforgettable classics that everyone goes back to (we’re looking at you, “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me”), and Disney’s The Lion King is the megamusical for all ages that continues to impress, hitting at the core of what it means to create truly timeless art. It’s perfect for any Fearless lover.
Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) → Les Misérables
“Dear John,” “Last Kiss,” you like the tear jerkers. We’re matching you with Les Miz for obvious reasons. All jokes aside, Speak Now was a revolutionary production, much like this Tony-nominated production of Les Misérables. The 2014 revival of the acclaimed musical phenomenon features a reinvented staging that has been hailed as “Les Mis for the 21st Century,” telling the cherished story of love, heartbreak, broken dreams, sacrifice, and redemption—all central themes of Speak Now. For those who love a cathartic, heartfelt work that dives deep, Les Misérables is for you.
Red (Taylor’s Version) → American Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker
Red was an instant classic for fans of all ages, and the seasonal feel of the album carries a wave of nostalgic bliss every year without fail. This timeless favorite takes you on a wonderful storytelling adventure, so it should be no surprise Red lovers will find that their perfect match is American Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker. Both Red and The Nutcracker only get better with time, so when the seasons change, it feels fitting to get out our red scarves and see The Nutcracker to lean into the end of the year a bit more.
1989 → Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations
1989—named in reference to Taylor Swift’s birth year—pays tribute to the music of the 80s and the synth pop that shaped the decade. With countless radio hits you can’t help but sing along to, 1989 fans will want to check out Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations. This extraordinary tribute to The Temptations ties the group’s chart-toppers into the story of their rise to fame, and if you loved Taylor’s album that brings influential sounds of the past into the present, you won’t want to miss Ain’t Too Proud.
Reputation → Cecile McLorin Salvant
In her concert, Cécile McLorin Salvant will be performing Ghost Song, her newest album that features a mix of originals and interpretations on themes of ghosts, nostalgia, and yearning. The New York Times says it is “her most revealing and rewarding record yet,” with “a romantic wariness” tied throughout the album. Ghost Song is wonderfully artistic and Reputation fans will appreciate the beauty and deep intricacies of this Grammy winner’s performance.
Lover → Disney’s Aladdin
Known as Taylor’s “love letter to love” (Time Magazine), Lover is the perfect match for Disney’s Aladdin, a dazzling story filled with spectacle, sparkle, and romance. For those who can’t get enough of independent anthems like “You Need to Calm Down,” and “I Forgot That You Existed,” you’ll love Jasmine’s new song, “These Palace Walls,” which you can only hear in the musical!
Folklore → Peter Pan
Folklore excels in storytelling with adventurous and imaginative tales that whisk you away to various fictional scenarios. There is no better fit for Folklore fans than Peter Pan, and Larissa FastHorse’s new adaptation shares one of the most beloved adventures of all time in an extraordinary musical filled with wonder and fantasy. And to top it all off, there’s even a Peter Pan reference in Folklore’s lead single!
Evermore → Postmodern Jukebox’s Life In The Past Lane Tour
Postmodern Jukebox’s Life In The Past Lane Concert Tour is a celebration of the greatest 20th century musical genres infused into modern music, similar to the multi-genre inspiration behind Taylor Swift’s Evermore. Crossing from indie folk to 80s pop to alternative rock, Evermore shows an immense range, and both Evermore and Postmodern Jukebox have a genre-defying sound with something for everyone. The Life In The Past Lane Concert Tour will be up your alley, Evermore fans.
Midnights → A Broadway Birthday: Sondheim, Lloyd Webber, and Friends!
As her 10th album, Midnights and “The Eras Era” reflect on the star’s life, career, and pivotal moments. This album feels like a celebration of Taylor Swift and her many accomplishments, and A Broadway Birthday does the same for two of Broadway’s foremost composers: Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim. Hear Broadway’s brightest stars perform your favorite songs by these two legends in an unforgettable concert celebration!
