The show is fun for them, but even more so for the adult!

Next show will be for dd and dh -- they are seeing Book of Mormon in August. I'm not a South Park fan, so opted not to go.
I saw Peter and the Starcatcher last month! It was FANTASTIC!

My best friend and I are going to New York in about a month for two days. We just booked our trip yesterday! We have tickets for Evita already and are going to see two more shows, as well. We're thinking probably Ghost and Newsies? It will be my second time seeing Evita but I loved it so much the first time that I'm going back!

It's our first time doing a girls' trip because now we're both working adults LOL - we got a great deal on a hotel and bus tickets and splurged on front row seats for Evita so we're going to keep the other two shows cheap!

Sister Act is closing the end of August. I'm really glad I saw it a couple months ago. It was a very good show!

I saw the matinee of Jesus Christ Superstar yesterday. It was really good! I've seen a few other productions of it (including the last Broadway revival, which was terrible), and this was one of the better versions. Josh Young as Judas was amazing! That Tony Awards performance didn't do him justice at all.

They had some effects, like video screens and a newsticker-type thing that scrolled the day or the place at different points of the show, but they didn't overuse it like a lot of productions do.

It's closing on Sunday, so I'm glad I got to see it.

We liked it as well. It will be coming to Orlando soon and we are looking forward to seeing it again.

We saw "Harvey" yesterday, very well done and lots of fun!

Jim Parsons is spot on and the supporting cast (Rich Sommer, Carol Kane, Jessica Hecht,...) is amazing!

see it, if you get a chance - I think it ends Aug 30th.

It is closing Aug 5th. I wish I could see it but we are going to DW in Aug and need the money for that.


I just got back from a matinee of a local company version of 42nd Street. I have seen this show several times and this was an outstanding production. Nothing lilke seeing a good show on a hot Sunday afternoon.

Phantom of the Opera is my favorite and Cats is a second runner up. I don't get a change t get to the city because of the high cost of hotels and tickets. I will be going to see Jersey Boys here in Syracuse in Oct. I almost forgot, I love CDS while we were in Orlando and would love to see more of their shows.
