It is no secret that Kathy and I enjoy traveling to NYC to see a Broadway show. It is something we look forward to each year around our birthdays. The problem is that with so many good shows playing and so many on their way, which two do we pick.
We are both fans of musicals so they are the first shows I look at. I want to see certain shows so we don’t do the half price ticket stand. There is no guarantee that the show I want to see will be there. I know, there are plenty of good shows for which there are tickets. Maybe I’m just a snob.
Once I decide what shows we want to see, Kathy always lets this up to me, the question becomes when do I start looking for tickets. I know from experience that some shows sell out quickly. This includes shows that haven’t opened yet but have high anticipation.
This is why I watch and then try to get tickets as soon as they go on sale. This is what I did for this year’s trip. I have had our tickets for several months already and at least as far as one sow goes I am glad I didn’t wait.
So what shows will be be seeing this year? First off, although we have had below freezing temperatures, come August I will be glad for cool temps as we see
I lucked out and was able to get orchestra aisle seats in Row D. Out of curiosity I checked for tickets about a month ago and found that there are none available for the day we will be in NYC. Correction, there are resale tickets for $1000 plus which I refuse to pay.
The second show we will see takes us to a completely different climate zone.
So, from ice in the afternoon we are going to the tropics in the evening. One exciting thing about this show is that our nephew’s fiancee got in touch with me to see what shows we are seeing. I told her and she was able to surprise our nephew with tickets for this show. To make things even better she was able to get the two seats next to us. We are thrilled. I will make dinner reservations for the four us and then we will all go enjoy the show.
Something to look forward to as we muddle through these winter months.
