The Excitement

Ooh, ooh! Over the weekend, the mailman delivered the Broadway Series season tickets I ordered for me and Baby Girl last winter!

They're gorgeous. Gor-geous. Each ticket has the show's image on it (unlike those Ticketmaster tix). They're nice and bright and colorful, which just makes me even more excited to see each of the shows this coming season.

The line-up:

*Beauty and the Beast - haven't seen it onstage and cannot wait!
*Wicked - LOVE it. My favorite musical. Cannot wait to see it again. (Soundtrack is currently playing in my car, and I have a little witch hat souvenir as a key chain.)
*Billy Elliot - never seen it but have heard raves
*West Side Story - saw the movie but haven't seen it onstage. Am slightly nervous about the snapping scenes (I hate the sound of snapping fingers! Might have to cover my ears...)
*The Addams Family - grew up watching the show and am betting this will be really fun. (Ditto my worry about the snapping fingers.)
*Les Mis - Baby Girl's favorite show! I've never seen it done onstage, but she has (local theater), and she's so excited to see Broadway's version.

All in all, a fun year ahead... Do you have a favorite musical?

And...

Just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr. W! Much love. Make a wish!

  1. I love how you unabashedly chose a favorite child, and ran with it for the last sixteen years. At least you're honest about it.

    Enjoy the monkey card.

  3. We have season tickets also and I was all excited when mine came in because I thought they were so colorful! Maybe we will see you there. I am looking forward to Wicked for the fourth time!!

  4. Sonia, SO lucky. And grateful we were able to do it. Might have to skimp on the souvenirs, though. :)

    Nikki, isn't it exciting??? And how funny would it be if we ran into each other? LOL.

  5. Recently saw Man of LaMancha and really enjoyed it. I would love to see Beauty and the Beast and The Addams Family. My niece recently finished reading Wicked and the sequuel (Son of a Witch) and wants to see Wicked sooo bad. I really love theater but don't get to see it as often as I would like. Enjoy the season!

  6. Love Phantom of the Opera. The music is incredible. Adored Billy Elliott. The dancing and story are spectacular. Loved The Boy From Oz. The single best performance by a male (Hugh Jackman) that I have ever seen and I've seen a lot of Broadway.

  7. You're seeing great shows. I've seen all of them and you're going to love Billy Elliot.

    Wicked, Jersey Boys, Spam-A-Lot are some of my favorites.

    Happy Birthday Mr. W.

  8. Lynda, I've actually never read the Wicked books--I've heard they're really different than the play. I think I'll have to read them soon!

    Avery, we saw Phantom last year and it was amazing! It's another of my daughter's faves. That's quite a rave for HJ! Wish I'd seen it, too!

    Dru Ann, Spam-A-Lot is on our must-see list. Sounds hilarious. And Shelley saw Jersey Boys in NYC and loved it too. I'm keeping an eye out for when it comes to Cincy.

    Btw, Mr. W says thank you for all the b-day wishes!
