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.

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.

OBCs of Carrie, Chess and The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public. Partly because I had tickets for them and they closed before I could see them.
