Before The Lion King was The Book of Mormon from Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and before that Wicked was the hot theater show ticket everyone wanted.

History of Live Theater Performance
We owe the ancient Athenians with the development of performance into the live theater performance we know today. More impressive than the ancient origin of the art form is how deeply rooted performance remains in the structures first crafted by the Greeks so many millennia ago; even the word "theater" comes from the Greek "theatron," which means "a place for viewing." And it was the Greeks who also divided theater into comedies and tragedies, crafted what we understand to be "theatrical vocabulary," and helped elevate performance for pure entertainment to performance with a purpose: Greeks viewed being a part of a theatrical audience as a vital part of citizenship. Even in ancient Greece, you know there was huge demand for theater tickets to the newest performance of Sophocles's latest play.
For many, "theater" is no longer defined simply by performances of actors, but also encompasses the Performing Arts at large. Ballet, pantomime, comedy, opera, puppetry, magic, and circus performances, in addition to the steadfast dramatic and musical productions we have come to know and love all fall within the broad strokes of theater, or theatre as it is sometimes spelled. Cirque du Soleil and The Blue Man Group are two of the latest to push the boundaries of live theater performances, so tickets for theater performances are always going to be in demand if groups continue to experiment like they currently are.
Theatre performances have moved and thrilled audiences for centuries, some so much so that they continue to be crowd-pleasers even still. From Shakespeare to Puccini, certain creators have stood the test of time to be performed millions of times in front of audiences large and small.
Recent advancements in technology have made the theater a more immersive and exciting experience for all. Whether the jaw-dropping escapades of Cirque du Soleil or the flash and pizzazz of shows on the Vegas strip, theater is an evolving art form that is always ready to transport audiences to a new place and time.
Today, a theatrical experience can be a transcendent one for an individual, a romantic one for couples, an awe-inspiring one for families, and more. Some of the hottest selling tickets for any live events are for theatrical productions. And of those productions, Broadway-style big musicals at a hit year after year. Current hit productions on Broadway and in touring productions include Book of Mormon, Wicked, Aladdin, The Lion King and more. For children and family theater shows, Disney on Ice continues to be one of the most popular theater ticket, especially their latest offering Frozen.
