* Arthur Miller:
** ''Theatre/{{Death of a Salesman}}'', the "greatest American play", is also extremely popular in, of all countries, ''China''. No, not because it's a criticism of capitalism and the American Dream, but because of its intense focus on father-son relationships.
** ''Theatre/TheCrucible'' is also popular, especially with the the generation that lived through the Cultural Revolution. Arthur Miller wrote that he had learned to expect to hear that it was being performed in countrie, where a dangerously authoritarian administration seemed to be on its way or had just been overthrown.

* ''OurAmericanCousin'' has Lord Dundreary, who is this and an EnsembleDarkhorse. His popularity in America was due to him being an exaggerated British stereotype in a play that was mocking Americans.

* ''Theatre/DinnerForOne'' is a British {{vaudeville}} which is obscure at best in the United Kingdom where it hasn't been shown on TV even once but a CultClassic in many European countries, starting with Germany where it has been aired by just about every PBS station each New Year's Eve since 1972.

* ''La muette de Portici'' has somewhat of a following in its native France as it was the TropeNamer of Grand Opera, but is hardly well-known there outside of opera enthusiasts. In Belgium it is one of the most recognizable opera's ever, as it is taught in history classes as being one of the reasons why Belgians wanted to become independent.

* Several big spectacle musicals like ''Les Mis'' have had stagings in other countries and have become very popular in some of them. ''{{The Phantom of the Opera}}''. In Hungary and Poland, the versions are not "clones" of the original English version, as in they have all-new set and costume design and other elements while retaining the songs and story-they have become popular enough that the creative teams are given new free rein. ''Disney/TheLionKing'' had its tenth anniversary celebration in Johannesburg in 2007, and ran for about a year there.

* ''StarlightExpress'' was probably {{Andrew Lloyd Webber}}'s least impressive work, yet is still running today in Germany. They specially built a theatre just for ''Starlight Express'' in Bochum, including race tracks on three levels on stage as well as two looping through the audience. It would be really weird to stage anything else there.

* The productions of Creator/CirqueDuSoleil are much-loved in its home country of Canada, and they have traveled well worldwide (due in part to being on the [[Main/SlidingScaleOfVisualsVersusDialogue visual side]]). That said, Japan deserves special mention. Dating back to their arrival with the country-specific tour ''Fascination'' in 1992 (an arena-based compilation of acts for Cirque's previous shows ''Le Cirque Reinvente'' and ''Nouvelle Experience''), their first outside of North America to succeed, it's proven extremely popular there. In 2008, it became only the second country outside of the U.S. to get a permanent Cirque show, ''[=ZED=]'', at the Tokyo Disneyland resort (it closed at the end of 2011, but that was due to a tourism slowdown post-earthquake/tsunami). This affection has even reached anime via the [[Main/KaleidoStar Kaleido Stage]].
