Suggestions for what to see this weekend?#0

I am actually going to town to meet a girl ... yes creapy i know.

So i figured what the heck even if i hate her i'll go see a show or two. (ala my other thread)

I've seen rent,spam,wick,drs,sweeney,piazza

So i was thinking mamma mia, avenue q, woman in white, or lion king or a combination of 2 of those 3. Kind of thought of doubt, but i saw the preview and quite honestly didnt do much for me.

Anything i am missing??

Chita! Or Color Purple if you're interested. If you still haven't seen Avenue Q, though, I'd recommend you do it!

yeah, I'll say it... Woman in White. You're meeting a girl- it's a love story- there will be tears (or maybe that's just me...)
perfect fit...

go see the Bee. it is a great date show. wonderful inside jokes that you can share with eachother. and if it doesn't work out, at least the show will have been great.

ok, so disregard the first two parts of my reasoning. Tears from you, perhaps??

See Spelling Bee. I agree with Pippin. It is a really fun and funny show. I am taking my best friend to see it in June when we are in NYC. Am hoping they do a few more Blue Nights around that time. I would like to see one of those performances!
Just give the world Love.

so would I. I would actually pay top dollar if I had to to get into one of those.

If you can get tickets, I'd say go see Jersey Boys w/the girl. If the date goes well, you guys can look back at a great show with some great love songs (John Lloyd Young singing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", for example is amazing!)The show ROCKS & it's a lot of fun, too! So that you can show her your "sensitive side," the show has a few heart wrenching moments, too.

And--if you don't hit it off with this girl, at least you will see a great show! IMHO, Jersey Boys is your best bet!!

THE WOMAN IN WHITE beckons - with its romantic score! The sets are cool re: Suggestions for what to see this weekend? You and your date might enjoy the beautiful and stunning images which move effectively with the pace/details of the plot.

Jersey Boys, Sweeney Todd, and Wicked (with this current cast) are my favorite shows right now.

I would stay away from Disney musicals for a date. Yes Lion King is visually amazing, but in the end it is a kids show. All those yelling screaming kids might not creat the ideal date atmosphere. You can never fail with a comedy on a date. I would suggest Bee or Avenue Q. Good luck on your date!

It is not your business to determine how good it is, Nor how valuable it is, Nor how it compares with other expressions.

You havn't seen Wicked until you have seen it with Eden.

Wicked, unless you try the lottery, might be hard to get tickets to.

actually as sad as it is i think i may go to one show alone :)

She didnt seeem OVERLY excited, so i was like F that i am not spending all that money for an extra person :)

I've already seen wicked and sweeney so those are out.

I am probably leaning more towards WIW and Avenue Q.

I might go with her on sunday depending on time constraints.
