Escaping reality one Disney vacation at a time
- Dec 11, 2006
Oh wow, that must have been great fun! I'd love to go for a few days and just go see shows. For now, I content myself with a few weekend trips each year to go see one show and do one touristy thing on each trip. Thank goodness for travel hacking that allows us to do this and not pay for the flights or the hotel stays. My niece wants to see Beetlejuice and has never been to NYC. If they release tickets for the spring (not visiting during the winter) before Christmas, I will get them and take her.Lol, too funny! I would rather get tickets ahead of time but I’m not sure when we are going yet. We did the tkts thing a few years ago and it worked out ok.
I went to NYC three years in a row as a chaperone when my son was in drama club and chorus in HS on different trips. So we got some great tickets to shows at group rates but also went to quite a few on our own and that’s how I discovered TKTS. The kids did a broadway summit workshop so while they were in the work shop I went to extra shows! Not sure, if I would choose King Kong either, but if it’s a musical I would probably end up loving it too. One of my favorites was Dear Evan Hanson. I am getting excited just thinking about all the options!
We enjoyed Dear Evan Hansen when it came to our theater as well.
The last thing I intended on seeing was King Kong. However, we were chatting with one of the line attendants who is a musical theater buff and had seen everything. So we asked recommendations and she began talking about all of the shows and their pros but not cons. I think they aren't allowed to say anything negative about any of the shows. Or, that was the impression I got. She said that the show was really impressive from a technical aspect and that by the end of the musical you'd swear that the puppet has a soul. As it turned out King Kong was available at a great price and with third row seats, so we decided to get the tix. Glad we did.
We also gave Broadway Roulette a try on one trip and that was fun too.
