    We just saw Hamilton as a family last week, so I am thinking Les Mis (my daughter wants to see that) and maybe Matilda (RSC is doing this right now).

    September. Good weather -- sunny and dry, but not too hot -- and kids are in school, so crowds aren't as bad.

    Mary Poppins, Wicked, and Hamilton. Hamilton tix are surprisingly cheap--they don't let you re-sell them, so you're paying face value. I just got pretty decent tickets for 100 pounds per.

    I like going in May.
    In May, you can also score some good deals on airfare. Once you hit summer, the plane tix get a lot more expensive. I subscribed to Scott's cheap flights. Probably not a ton out of Boise, but if you're willing to drive to SLC, you can probably snag some good prices.

    A couple of people where I work use Flights From Home website. The airports you can select from are SLC, LAS, and PHX.
