Life List: See a Broadway Play – check!

How I managed to live in New York for five years without going to the theater is baffling. It wasn’t high on my list of things to remedy just yet, but a friend had two tickets to Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, so I pulled on a pretty dress, swept my hair into an updo, put on a fancy face, and headed to a Monday evening performance.

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are amazingly fun to watch, and made the rather dreary subject matter enjoyable (it took me a minute to get past seeing Gandalf interacting with Captian Picard!)

Have you been to a Broadway show? What did you see?

    I’ve seen two. Avenue Q before it went off-Broadway and Book of Mormon. Both were excellent… but Broadway theater is definitely one of those things that I don’t generally remember to seek out.

    Hi Amber, I’ve never been to a broadway show before, We don’t even have this in India (that’s where I live). But seeing a play is on my life list too 🙂
