Favorite (And Not So Favorite) Things

It has been a rough February on Broadway, as pointed out by my blog buddy Chris. The slowdown on ticket sales often comes with casualties, including Rent, The Fantasticks and The Color Purple. In an effort to inject attendance, The Broadway League sponsors Kids Night on Broadway, where select shows and restaurants offer buy one, get one with a paying adult.

As a result, I get to do one of my favorite things. Go to the theatre with my daughter. Tonight's dalliance? Hairspray, which I haven't seen yet. I've seen the original film and the movie musical but never "live on stage" (as my kids say). A full review of the evening and a word or two about the show is forthcoming.

And then tomorrow I get to do a not so favorite thing... Find out if I broke or tore something in my ankle when I fell down the stairs a few days ago. *sigh*

It's always something, ain't it?

I hope you and your daughter have a great time at Hairspray! I've only seen it on tour, but I loved it. I still kind of wish I'd seen it last summer on Broadway with Jerry Mathers!

And good luck with the ankle. I hope it's nothing serious.

Sorry, Alicia. I was a might confused. Esther said she had given me a shout out on her blog (re: Curtains) and because you had also done so, I assumed you were the same person.

Mea maxima culpa.

I look forward to meeting you BOTH next month.

warmest regards,
