The Theater

Our apartment.

We had the chance to go to 2 Broadway plays. TWO. Both were so amazing and really fun to go. We went around noon and stood in a very long line to buy discount tickets. We went to Mary Poppins Saturday night. Sunday afternoon we went to In The Heights. (second picture is the stage from this musical). We had fantastic seats for both shows. Second row for ITH and I gotta tell you. The performers know how to sweat.

I have always loved musicals. And I still remember the first time I saw a Broadway play in New York City, The Secret Garden. Side note* On that trip we also went to Cats. My little brother slept through most of it. Money well spent. I was 15 and I was in love. I have since sought out good theater. I have seen many amazing plays in San Francisco, Los Angles, Las Vegas and London. I think In The Heights moved to my top 5 Broadway plays I have seen. Curious about the list, ok.

Top 5 Broadway Plays
5. Wicked
4. In The Heights
3. 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
2. Beauty and the Beast
