On a Whim…
I was in Times Square picking up some Mary Poppins tickets for when my friend Megan will be in town and trying to get Wicked tickets for graduation weekend (to no avail) ~ when I thought it would be fun to see a Broadway play tonight! Hairspray sells student tickets on weekdays so I went to the box office to see if I could get some. But, continuing my streak of bad luck there were no student tickets left. But, they did have some “lottery” tickets left for tonight’s show! Our seats were in the orchestra – row A! Our faces were about 6 inches from the stage!
It was a great show! Even Bill liked it and he did not like the movie. It is fun to sit that close because you can see every little thing that the actors are doing – it is so exaggerated! George Wendt from Cheers played Edna Turnblad – it was great! At intermission they told Bill and I that we needed to put our bags under our seats b/c the cast would be using the space in front of us – remember that there were only 6 inches between us and the stage. One of the characters actually squeezed past us to get on the stage!
