Oh why do we have to love musicals this much? We could have saved it all for shopping. Too frivolous? Okay, we could have saved.
With our air tickets and accommodation settled, Dia and I decided it was time to book our tickets for the musicals so we could work the rest of our itinerary around it. And because we wanted the certainty of having good seats, we decided not to go the way of TKTS, and booked everything online. No, that was not the collective sound of our pockets burning up. Or, was it?
Fresh from its Tony win, we heard that tickets for The Book of Mormon were running fast despite soaring prices. But we knew we had to catch it. Convinced it’ll never hit Singy, we bit our lips as we clicked on “Submit” and saw my credit card being charged an exorbitant amount of money. The most we’ve ever paid for any musical.
We didn’t care that we’d already watched Wicked in London mostly because we have MAD LOVE for it. And even though it’s coming to Singy this December (and we’re likely to watch it then, too), we both agreed we had to catch the Broadway cast in the famed Gershwin Theatre. We were sure we’d majorly regret it if we didn’t. Like I said. MAD LOVE.
Our last musical on Broadway is a feel-good one, with songs we were already familiar with. Having watched Grease in London the last time, we figured it might be fun to watch a musical with songs that we could sing along to. Besides, the musical-loving cousin kept raving about Jersey Boys, so we were pretty much sold.
So there you have it. Three musicals in the span of eight days. Crazy? Nope. Just how we like to get it done in NYC. ;)
