New York City, that is. Tomorrow, my husband and I will head east for a few days to attend a friend’s wedding (Zach is a groomsman), but not before spending a couple days as tourists in the city. My best friend lives there, so we’re going to meet up with her, along with a few other friends who will also be in town for the wedding. Any suggestions on which Broadway show to see while we’re there? Should I go with a tried-and-true favorite (like Mamma Mia, Wicked, or Bye Bye Birdie) or something I’ve never seen (like Avenue Q, Billy Elliot, or In the Heights)? Please advise!
My first trip to NYC was, no joke, to sing at Carnegie Hall. Granted, it was by no means a solo performance; rather, it was with a huge chorus performing the works of Morten Lauridsen. That was back in the summer of 2004, and it was an amazing trip. My mom and I went together, and we hit up all of the hot spots: the Empire State Building, Tavern on the Green, The Today Show, Times Square, two Broadway shows (Thoroughly Modern Millie and Chicago) and lots more.
So needless to say, I am extremely excited about going back to the Big Apple, as well as our friends’ wedding. I’m taking my computer with me (does that really surprise you?) so hopefully I will even fit in a blog update or two. In the meantime, have a wonderful Wednesday!
