Broadway is back and no one is more excited than the users of TikTok. That includes performers, stagehands and theatre fans who absolutely could not wait to sit in a seat in an esteemed Times Square theater once again. Yes, filming is banned during Broadway performances, but some people just couldn't contain their excitement and captured it to share. 

These are the best TikToks capturing the energy and pure joy of Broadway's big return on Tuesday, September 14. And if you're ready to get in on the action, these are all the tickets to Broadway shows you can buy for the remainder of 2021.
