SOLSC Day 7
It never fails that sometime during the winter months my thoughts turn toward August. I don’t look forward to it because it is my birthday month. I anticipate it because it is the month Kathy and I take our annual NYC trip. The trip includes two Broadway shows (matinee and evening performance), dinner, and an overnight stay at the Marriott Marquis on 46th Street.
I admit I started checking out possible shows way back in September. I have learned that if I want to get good seats for a show I want to see I need to buy tickets early.
I am a big fan of Playbill.com. I can sit and browse through shows and pick my own seats in the theatres.
In my opinion, Playbill is (Simply) The Best site for purchasing tickets. I have had our August tickets for a few months now. I thought about letting you know what shows we will be seeing but then decided against it.
I thought I would let you search River Deep and Mountain High in this post to see if you can correctly guess one of the shows we will be seeing. I have great confidence that you will easily spot the clues.
I remember years ago before technology and when my Aunt Mary was still alive I would tell her what shows we wanted to see and she would walk to the theaters as fast as her Legs would take her and buy tickets for us. Even though I always gave her the money for them, she would return it. She was a Proud Mary and this was her birthday gift to us.
I know that some people think it is a waste to spend all that money on theatre tickets. I like orchestra seating and aisle seats. I do it because we both love Broadway musicals. You may ask “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” for me – everything.
Tomorrow a bit about the second show we will be seeing. I will also let you know which show I am talking about here if you didn’t figure it out.
