The Waa-Mu Show Presents: Romance en Route

Northwestern’s oldest theatrical tradition, The Waa-Mu Show, provides undergraduates with an unparalleled education in new musical theater development. Every year, over 100 students from across Northwestern participate as producers, writers, and performers in an original musical that inspires audiences and engages the surrounding communities. The Waa-Mu Show is a forerunner in the world of musical theater writing, giving undergraduate students a chance to serve as leaders in every aspect of the production's creation, including writing, orchestration, and performance. 

Waa-Mu strives to be an accessible community that celebrates creativity, collaboration, and tradition. By sharing stories that engage the hearts and minds of Northwestern’s campus, as well as those of the greater community, the show aspires to give students an unparalleled experience that prepares them to lead and advance the world of musical theater. 



The 92nd Annual Waa-Mu Show, "Romance en Route" follows six romantics on a journey through love, loss, heartbreak, and self-discovery in the City of Lights. By a chance of fate, Eve and Xander sit next to each other on their flight from Chicago to Paris. Meanwhile, their significant others, Lexi and Jenna, are in Paris competing for a high-stakes promotion. Alongside Tristan, a flight attendant with his head in the clouds, and Matthieu, a hotel concierge and part-time cynic, the two couples meet in Paris and are forced to confront fears, doubts, and unavoidable conversations. Will they find themselves, and the love they deserve, before they return home?
