Valentine’s Day is just days away, you haven’t found the right gift yet and your plans are tentative at best—or maybe you’re single and doing that weird combo of Fifty Shades of Grey and The Last Five Years, go you—well we’ve got your February 14th covered with these five great date night plays and musicals.

Honeymoon in Vegas

Honeymoon in Vegas- GIF- Finale- Broadway

Romance Factor: There are plenty of “aw” moments in the new musical about a commitment-phobe, a desperate widower and the woman they both love. It’s also super fun and upbeat so it will keep the romance and energy up well after curtain call.
Discount: Ticket prices range from $69-$89.


If/Then- Love story- Couples

On the Town

On the Town- GIf- Jay Armstrong Johnson- Alysha Umphress

Romance Factor: Three sailors in town for 24-hours and desperate to find a girl to love, this musical revival is an old-fashioned Valentine’s Day treat, like chocolate or roses.

The Phantom of the Opera

Off-Broadway Bonus

The Fantasticks

The Fantasticks- Max Crumm
