When I was a kid my parents always took me to The Theatre. So one of my New Year's resolutions was to revive that tradition and see a play at least once a month. I find it both inspirational and restorative.
The availability of funds and freedom makes this challenging, so whenever I get an ad/email for a Broadway show that says, "tickets starting at $39" I hunt down that seat like it’s dinner and I’m starving. It usually ends up being the last seat, in the last row, halfway behind a pole. But I don’t care. I’m in the building!
When I saw "Three Tall Women,” I was sitting so far away from the stage that all I could see were three short, blurry women.
Last night I snagged a last minute ticket to see “The Play That Goes Wrong" again. (Yes, it’s THAT good). Because it was a discount ticket I expected to be somewhere in the way back but I ended up in an orchestra seat!
Yeah Baby! I was In! The! Building!
And I look forward to being so again on Sunday, 10/21, to see my friend Nicky Sunshine’s solo show: Confessions of a Massage Parlor Madam, 6PM at Broadway Comedy Club in NYC.
You should be there too!
