I expect to see a note in the program saying "No wabbits were harmed in the making of this production."

Thought it would be fun to do an update. So far in 2019 I've seen:

  • Pretty Woman (revisit)
  • Kiss Me Kate
  • Come From Away (Broadway, revisit)
  • The Other Josh Cohen
  • Alice By Heart
  • Hello Dolly (Tour)
  • Come From Away (Tour)
  • Falsettos (Tour)
  • Aladdin (Tour)
  • Metamorphoses (Regional, Berkeley Rep)
  • Home (Regional, Berkeley Rep)
  • The Jungle (Regional, Curran)

Plus an assortment of other local Bay Area shows.

In May, we'll be seeing:

  • Tootsie 
  • Hadestown
  • The Prom (revisit for me)
  • The Ferryman
  • Octet

We also somehow ended up with a June trip. The plan right now is:

  • Beetlejuice
  • In the Green
  • What the Constitution Means to Me
  • Octet (revisit)

Technically we could have one more slot for this trip, but it's going to be a whirlwind and I don't want to overdo it.

My wishlist for the rest of the year and beyond:

  • Oklahoma!
  • Jagged Little Pill
  • The Cher Show
  • Soft Power (assuming it plays at The Public)
  • Six

DoTheDood said: "So far I have two trips to Broadway in the works right now

All My Sons

Gary

I have more in mind but a lot of it depends on my budget really"


 

Back from both trips (AMS was actually earlier this month, but might as well update now). Here's how I would rank both shows
All My Sons: C+, this was during previews but the show was kind of bland imo, tho Benjamin Walker was a highlight.

Gary: A, I get the negative reviews, but this show was outstanding. Super funny, super gory, something that will never be on Broadway again (which I say that as a negative, but some would see it as a positive). The text was so dense, especially when they fall into Shakespeare-like soliloquies, this makes me want to visit this show again and again, or at least read the script. Love this so much!

I also have a trip for Be More Chill, but my friend is still planning that so possibly going to see that this summer (might not react to it because I'm kind of biased to the show haha).

I'm going to try to rush either Hadestown or Tootsie next weekend. Or maybe I'll just see The Prom again.

I’m planning on seeing the OOTI tour twice but individual tickets aren’t on sale until July. Already planning my next trip back to Hadestown but the prices are so expensive right now that round two might have to wait until next year when the ticket prices drop. Also have tickets to Hugh Jackman’s concert at Madison Square Garden.

Despite trying to minimize my trips to NYC this year, Iím now returning for 24 hours next weekend to see The Ferryman for a second time with my friend, because we were both so blown away by it when we saw it in March. Weíve also gotten tickets to Frankie & Johnny that day.

We were also finally able to book Hadestown for our October trip, so that will finalize our triad of shows for that weekend (Moulin Rouge and Tootsie being the other two).

A lot to look forward to!

Since I managed to get a ticket to see Madonna in Brooklyn on Oct. 1, I have an unexpected trip to NYC now. This will my third this year, which is unprecedented. Iím flying in Friday, September 27 and flying home Wednesday, Oct. 2. One of my gal pals is joining me from 9/27 to 9/29.

Hereís my schedule:

Friday - Hadestown (purchased)
Saturday matinee: TKAM (purchased)
Saturday evening: Moulin Rouge! (purchased)
Sunday matinee: Oklahoma!
Saturday evening: Ben Platt At Radio City MH (hopefully)
Monday evening: Tootsie
Tuesday evening: Madonna at BAM (purchased)

This is shaping up to be the most exciting trip Iíve had in a while. This is also the first time Iím actually staying in Brooklyn which Iím excited about exploring more.

Last month: 

Cher Show (Ok... what we'd expected)
Tootsie (Funnier than I'd imagined it would be... REALLY funny. Unmemorable score)
Beetlejuice (Better than reputation lead me to believe; saved by cool visuals and a game cast)
Kiss Me Kate (well done, nothing -- dancing aside -- too special
Hadestown (so so well-done, loved it)
Then She Fell (like a more "chill" Sleep No More... 2 hours flew by)

Next trip/November:

Jagged Little Pill
Moulin Rouge
Oklahoma
Plus 2-3 more...

Add me to the list hoping that Lehman Trilogy and The Inheritance will reopen / transfer before Christmas. Those two are on my list. Maybe Jagged Little Pill. We'll see what else opens. 

Thus far this year we've seen: 

The Ferryman

Puffs

Phantom

Hadestown

and about to see through July:

TKAM

Secret Life of Bees 

Ain't Too Proud

Moulin Rouge

 

The last two were a gift from relatives who had to cancel an upcoming trip. We are considering adding another Wednesday matinee to that trip, which I am making with my teen. Torn between Oklahoma and something like The Prom or Waitress for that trip. I'm leaning toward Oklahoma, but she's not sure she'd like it...
