Whether it is to see the latest Broadway (or off-Broadway) musical, an opera or the ballet, there is something magical about going to the theater. Growing up near NYC afforded me the ability to see quite a few shows. Some of the notable ones included:
- Kinky Boots with Jami during our first ever sister’s weekend
- Madame Butterfly (opera) when I was in grade school – I don’t think I truly appreciated it as much as I would today but remember the experience of walking to Lincoln Center, the grandeur of the theater, and the lively buzz.
- Wicked – I tried to read the book, I really did, but there’s no need to when you can go to the show!
- Avenue Q – It has since closed (a shame because I would recommend it hands-down), but one of my favorites
- Lion King – We brought the boys and they were pretty into it, thankfully. They were young-ish so it was a gamble taking them, but the characters and the music kept them very interested.
- The Book of Mormon – If you’re a fan of South Park and desensitized to hearing some crazy sh*t, go to see the The Book of Mormon.
- Blue Man Group – this show was memorable because we sat in the third row from the stage, where we didn’t need to wear the rain ponchos to protect us from the Blue Men spitting their Captain Crunch on us, but were close enough to really get the full experience.
- De La Guarda – an off-broadway show that we saw, where we stood the whole time – it was amazing (not that we stood for an hour and forty five minutes, but the show it self was interactive and I didn’t even realize we were standing for as long as we did – it was that great!)
I feel like there were more I’m missing…
