I'm New...Wanted To Say Hello!
Posted: 11/12/13 at 10:22am
Hi everybody,

I just joined the message board and wanted to sign in to say Hello. I live in Virginia and, believe it or not, I have never seen a Broadway play. But, I do love to read and collect the Playbills (given to me by friends) and hear all the different stories.

I'm looking forward to hearing all of your questions/stories and joining in whenever I can. And, hopefully, I'll be able to get to New York soon to see a Play in person...just like everybody else.

Thanks,

Ethel

Welcome ethel5. I hope you will find that this board is filled with many charming, interesting, opinionated, delightful and lovely posters - and a few, well, not so much. Were there 4 ethels ahead of you or is there some significance to the "5" in your name?

Thanks for the "warm reception" everyone. I truly am happy to be here.

And to "IAMWHATIAM"...I don't know if there are 4 ethels ahead of me. I chose only "ethel" as my username but somehow "the system" chose to call me ethel5. So, I guess that's who I am now. (Thanks for asking).

Some advice

Stay away from off topic (especially politics) until you are here for maybe 20 years.

Never admit to loving Wildhorn even if you do (like me) or else you be incessantly pummeled until you recant your heresy

Enjoy

Hi and Welcome. Look forward to see you post.

Never saw a Broadway show...boy, us New Yorker's take a lot for granted sometimes.

Have you seen any Broadway shows on tour that might travel into Virginia? Some touring shows are really amazing (and others not so much but you can say the same thing about B'way shows on B'Way)

Welcome Ethel! So, have you seen any regional productions of any plays or musicals? Any musical soundtrack recordings you are really fond of?

Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!
