If you had a time machine and three tickets to any show you wanted, what would you go see? I think I would see A Chorus Line OBC, Wicked with Stephanie J. Block and Kendra Kassebaum, and Great Comet with Oak.
Opening night of Hamilton with the original cast, the performance of Gypsy where Patti LuPone yelled at an audience member, and the 2005 revival of Sweeney Todd.

I would go back to late 1960's London for three shows I saw there then as as young man. "Promises, Promises" (with Betty Buckley); "Hello, Dolly!" (with Dora Bryan); and "Mame" (with Ginger Rogers). At the time, Ginger was in her late 50's. All these many years later, I still remember how muscular her legs were.
