The Phantom of the Opera deflowered me at the tender age of 5.

I was 13, but the first professional show I saw when I was five and I don't remember anything about it except there were four actors and one was in drag. Pretty age-appropriate stuff for a kindergartener re: How old were you when you lost your Broadway virginity?
There's a lot I am not certain of...

I was 13. It was the day before Thanksgiving of 1983 and the show was My One and Only with Twiggy, Tommy Tune and the LEGENDARY Charles "Honey" Coles. St. James Theater, fourth or fifth row, Orchestra right. I was SHOCKED at how tiny the St. James was compaired with our MASSIVE 3,500 seat warehouse of an auditorium in Dallas which was the only experience I'd had watching musicals up until that point and it totally changed my perspective on what a good show and a bad show was and how much it mattered what size theater a show plays in, etc. To say it was life-changing is an understatement. oh, we also saw Cats, Nine and Brighton Beach Memoirs in that order, all of which were fantastic.

I was 7. It was 1996 and we saw Beauty and the Beast. That was one of the best days ever.

"If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it." -Stephen Colbert

"My sister singing. During the Viet Nam War, I wrote President Johnson that we should fly our jets over Hanoi without bombs but with tapes of my sister singing. I believed that the North Vietnamese would have surrendered unconditionally after two weeks of listening to my sister's singing voice." wexy, on the worst sound in the world.

RENT in 2000. I was only 10 years old. My dad was going to get tickets to The Lion King, but apparently they were all sold out so he bought the RENT ones instead. Now I am so extremely happy that he did that because that was what started my whole obsession with broadway! I actually understood pretty much all of the show surprisingly. The things I remember most though were the music(LOVED IT!)and how close we were to the stage (3rd though i think).

I was eleven and my parents got me tickets for THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON. I took the bus from New Jersey to New York and saw the show alone. I don't think my parents were aware that the last line of the play was, "Say cunnilingus, coach."
