For years, Jukebox musicals have been taking The Great White Way by storm in popularity, gross revenue, and ticket sales. There are three jukebox musicals currently on Broadway: 'Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,' 'Jersey Boys', and 'On Your Feet!.' Although all three productions have seen varying highs and lows across the ticket market, On Your Feet! continues to dominate in the genre with gross sales as well as resale ticket prices.
With hits like Book of Mormon, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder and Jersey Boys, Broadway is once again taking the country and the world by storm with popular touring productions. Many theatergoers around the country opt to see the touring productions because tickets are generally cheaper on the road than on Broadway, especially in terms of resale prices. The secondary ticket market is seeing price increases for a number of touring productions, just not to the extent of many of their Broadway counterparts, according to data provided by TiqIQ.
Alan Menken has joined the creative team for the new Broadway-bound bio-musical "Happy Trails: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in Song & Story."

The creative team for the new show includes director Des McAnuff, who staged the hit "Jersey Boys" and won a Tony for his work on "Big River" and "The Who’s Tommy."
