I intend to get to Caroline or Change and Six. I want to get to Jagged Little Pill, as well, but it's not as big a priority. I already have my tickets for Oresteia at the Park Avenue Armory. 

While the new decade doesn't technically start until 2021 from a strictly timekeeping pov, a decade from a cultural perspective is usually year 0 to year 9 rather than year 1 to year 10. The roaring 20s don't include 1930, same as how the 2010s as a cultural period don't include 2020.

Definitely seeing:

-Waitress tour - Burlington, VT in just under 2 weeks (first time seeing it, really excited!)
-Hadestown - sometime in March most likely, or maybe April

No specific plans yet, but hope to see:
-Dear Evan Hansen, most likely tour in Schenectady, NY in June (it’ll be there the week immediately following my college graduation and chances are my family and I will be passing very near that area and believe it or not I still haven’t seen it...)
-Anastasia tour, probably Buffalo, NY (it’ll be under 3 hours away the week before my birthday but already doesn’t have many tickets left even though it’s not til May...)
-Hello, Dolly! tour in Schenectady - same week as Anastasia so probably couldn’t do both
-Beetlejuice - didn’t have much interest when it first came out but I’ve gotten more into it and now I really want to see it before it closes
-Come From Away - very unlikely cause I’ve seen it twice but I still really want to see it on Broadway (even though I never saw Jenn Colella before she left...)
-Jagged Little Pill
-Hamilton tour whenever it comes to Syracuse (might not be til 2021, not sure)
-The Band’s Visit tour - maybe Denver next summer cause I have relatives not far

Those are my top ones anyway. The only ones I know for sure are happening are Waitress tour and Hadestown and I think DEH tour is reasonably likely...

The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Hamilton will be during the 21-22 season in Syracuse. No dates have been secured yet. Very excited for it to come here so my family can finally see it! 
 

Also, Dolly at Proctors has been canceled.

I have tickets for Caroline or Change. And to see Oklahoma! again.

I'm pretty confident I'll see Six, Company, Tina, and Flying Over Sunset but I'd prefer to purchase the tickets when it's convenient for my schedule rather than buy too far in advance. 

I'm thinking about My Name is Lucy Barton, Girl From the North Country, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and Mrs. Doubtfire but I'm waiting on the (hopefully strong) word of mouth. 

If most of these shows don't eat into my budget I might just spring for Hadestown or Moulin Rouge. 

I keep forgetting about Encores. I should really get on that.

There's beauty in the odometer rolling over to 100,000.

I get more of a thrill when the calendar turns from the highest single number -9- back down to the lowest -0-.

The move from 1999 to 2000 was bliss. Moving from 2000 to 2001 was not an odyssey.

Off my Zest box.

Seeing 6 previews in March:

Company
Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff?
Flying Over Sunset
Mrs Doubtfire
The Minutes
Caroline, Or Change

Still have an opening for a Saturday matinee on March 14.

Returning in October for The Music Man.

Happy 2020 everyone.

I was walking up Central park West by the Museum of Natural history the other day, and it was so nice, such beautiful weather in NY this week, and I thought to myself, " I have to come back next x-mas again." So when I went back to my hotel I bought a ticket for one of the Boxing Day shows of MUSIC MAN. So much is closing, or was just limited things this year, that I'm so curious about what will be playing in a year's time.

I'm starting 2020/ending 2019 with a local production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT on New Year's eve.

I have tickets to see touring DEAR EVAN HANSEN & FINDING NEVERLAND

In late March going down to Seattle for a weekend to see
SHE LOVES ME at Village Theatre &
SISTER ACT at 5th Avenue

In May I have a trip to Los Angeles planned with tickets to
SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at LA Philharmonic
HAMILTON touring
PELEAS AND MELISANDE at LA Opera
Will be travelling down towards San Diegio & hope my dates line up with LEMPICKA at LaJolla Playhouse

In early September, I am potentially going to be in San Francisco & am waiting to find out what will open SF Opera's season then, and what else will be playing SF

Not sure if I will do Las Vegas this year, after going twice this year.

Also seeing various local indy theatre things

Have tickets for Next to Normal in DC in Feb, and in April for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Birthday Candles.

Will likely add a third show to the April trip. Considering:
Lehman Trilogy
Caroline or Change
Hangmen
Take Me Out

Had considered How I Learned to Drive but I was underwhelmed by the Sound Inside and decided to mix another MLP play for now.

Somebody explain the appeal of Six to me. I almost caught it in Chicago as the 6 queens telling their stories appealed to me,but after seeing a few clips from the London shows, it seemed more like a Girl Power meets cheeky Medieval Spice Girls type concert, which would not be my cup of tea. Is there really any story telling or is it all concert divas and dance?

Definitely want to see Almost Famous if it ever comes east, and would like to see both Hadestown and WSS a second time.

If I get a FT job and head back to NYC, I’d love to see:

Mean Girls- although the tour was so fetch too lol

Frozen- I know Patti/ Caissie leave in February so I’d go if I win Con tickets but seeing Alyssa and Aisha wouldn’t be too shabby either.

Moulin Rouge!- although tickets even mezzanine are $$$.

Company- the plot looks great in itself.

keen on kean said: "The new decade begins in 2021."

Any ten-year period is a decade, so it’s kind of impossible to be wrong about this either way. Our culture overwhelmingly conceptualizes decades in terms like “the ‘50s” or “the ‘80s,” so I’m quite sure that most people see a new decade as starting this Wednesday - but, again, no one is wrong as long as they’re referring to a period of ten years.

It’s also true that any hundred-year chunk is a century, but in this case we commonly use terms like “21st century,” and if you use that term [rather than “the 2000s”] you’d be correct to point out that it actually began on 1/1/2001 because there was no year zero. No one, however, refers to things like “the 203rd decade,” so that argument doesn’t apply.

Have cut back on travel so probably going to limit myself to regional shows and tours.

I'm guessing I'll probably see "Mean Girls", "Donna Summer musical", maybe "Escape to Margaritaville" and I want to see "Groundhog Day" if I can swing a trip to Fort Lauderdale.  

Still waiting to see next seasons tour announcements before I can get too excited

^ ^ ^ Same here with the travel cutback. Most all of my shows will be national touring productions, with the first five months looking like this:

Jesus Christ Superstar (January 5)

Miss Saigon (February 9)

CATS (March 1)

The Band’s Visit (March 15)

Wicked (May 20)

Escape to Margaritaville (May 17)

Then probably Cabaret and SpongeBob in the summer months before the new 2020/2021 Broadway Season kicks into gear up in Pittsburgh.

Only seeing touring shows in 2020, since I will not be travelling to NYC in 2020.  (I know I said that in 2019, but this time I am holding my ground.)  I have Rent in January, Bandstand in February, Hamilton in March and Anastasia in April.  I make take a road trip to Orlando in February to see Mean Girls.
