Looking back at the month of March on Broadway!

March is definitely a popular time for shows to open on Broadway. With our leap month of February coming to an end, we thought it would be good to have a look back at all the wonderful shows that had their openings in March over the last few decades. Some of these shows have become staples in the world of community theatre, with their original Broadway productions still playing to this day.
