New York, New York

There’s an interesting piece on “Mary Poppins” in the latest Newsweek. I’m glad to hear that the latest production makes MP a little darker, more of a Nanny McPhee-type character. This is enough to make me consider seeing this show now, maybe next year if it’s still around.

But for our December trip, it’s going to be “A Chorus Line” and “Wicked.” All of “the girls” wanted to see “ACL” and, through some tremendous good fortune and some most welcome generosity, we got killer seats for “Wicked,” so can’t argue with that. I’m still intrigued by “Spring Awakening” and would like a chance to see either “History Boys” or “A Drowsy Chaperone” before they disappear.

And finally, here’s a bit of cool news: Kevin Spacey will be playing on Broadway next spring in “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” I’d love to see that.

Hey Dave - When is your trip? I'm going the second weekend of December. This will be my fifth viewing of Wicked (I'll bet we have the same source for those great seats), but I'm interested to hear what you think of A Chorus Line. It's on my short list, but I have reservations about it. I saw the original so many times that I'm a little nervous about being disappointed. My other picks are The Drowsy Chaperone, The Apple Tree, and maybe Spamalot (I'm not really a Monty Python fan, but the recording is hilarious).

Sorry buddy, but History Boys is already gone... but Drowsy Chaperone is GREAT!

One eye...let me know if you see the Apple Tree. It is one of my favorite musicals, but I've never seen it. Yeah, Dave you are going to love Wicked. I saw it 2X (yes, those seats are AMAZING). The end of Act I...well just be made me scream cry and clap till my hands were numb.
