Broadway Baby

What I love most about living in NYC is the accessibility of pretty amazing theatre. And people go see shows here! It’s part of what the average person does in his or her spare time, like working out at the gym, or catching a movie. I teach an intro-level theatre class, and one of the first things I tell the kiddos is, “Never pay full price for a Broadway show!” Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

Lombardi – ($5 – TDF) For a girl who can never manage to stay interested in televised sports, I am strangely drawn to plays and movies that dramatize these events. That sucker moment when the underdog comes through with the winning score gets me every time. I thoroughly enjoyed this production.

Anything Goes – ($21.50 Hip Tix) I should love Cole Porter more than I do. What saved the day for me was the lead female, Sutton Foster. She was having a great time on stage, and brought some of the potentially snoozy musical numbers alive.

Follies – ($37 Student Rush) Visually stunning, but slow. Several people in the audience fell asleep, and the show seemed much longer than its advertised 2hr 30min run time. Still, the soap-opera storyline kept me engaged.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – ($30 Student Rush) Harry Potter fans took over the audience. The kid can dance, but they had to mic the h#@$ out of him so you could hear his voice over the orchestra. He pretty much plays himself, but it works for this role. The show is fun, very Mad Men, and a lot racier that I’ve ever seen it done. Leave it to Broadway to push the envelope.
