Day 2 in NYC.
As you might well know, Babs loves a show.
Today I decided to go to TKTS booth and get a matinee ticket for the acclaimed revival of Hair, it closes Sunday. Actually it is a weekend of closures. Sondheim, Red, and Hair. I got to see all 3. And they were all brilliant productions. All three had huge standing ovations, I think that is kind of normal here in New York.
I will give full reviews of the shows soon, these blogs take up a little bit of time.
1. Listening to the crowd at the TKTS booth is a hoot. 2 middle aged ladies from the midwest were behind me. They couldn’t decide what show to see. One of them demanded it be a musical, she liked musicals. They commented on a few of the huge billboads advetising the shows in Times Square. They couldnt remember what shows they had seen last time they were here. I wish I had recorded their conversation.
2. The autograph fans who hang out at the stage door. They are avid fans, with pens in hand.
3. Will I ever see a show that doesn’t get a standing ovation?
