I feel a little sad today. I read that Broadway is closed until September. Why should this bother me you might ask? Well, each year in August Kathy and I take an overnight trip to NYC to celebrate our birthdays. Mine is August 4 and hers is August 9 so we usually pick a Wednesday close to one of those days to go celebrate.
Our trip always includes a matinee and evening show, a nice dinner, and an overnight stay at the Marriott Marquis. I usually start planning our trip around September of the previous year so that I can get tickets for the shows I want to see. I know I could just wait and stand in the discount ticket line the day we get there, but I don’t want to spend my day in NYC standing in a ticket line. Besides, I like orchestra seats on the aisle. Since we only go once a year I don’t mind paying full price. It is my birthday gift to both us.
If you have been following my posts you know that I have already purchased tickets for this year. We were going to see Mrs. Doubtfire at 2:00 and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical at 8:00. Well, this is not going to happen. I already signed up for a refund for the Tina tickets and should hear shortly about the others.
I know that when Broadway does open and travel is safe I will be back on line searching for tickets for both shows once again. I need my Broadway fix.
This week’s quarantine humor.
