I haven't seen many off-Broadway shows but I was blown away by In the Heights and I enjoyed Altar Boyz a lot as well and I realized that I should be more open to them but I don't here a lot about the current ones often. Are there any you guys would reccomend? Thanks.

*EDIT* wow I'm really embarressed don't know how I managed that one. I am on the ski team and was e-mailing my captain something before but that's really no excuse. haha sorry. But seriously, any suggestions would be great.

I've been known to hit the slopes with the cast of Crimes of the Heart.

Dead Man's Cell Phone looks very promising.

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is a show I have been meaning to see for years (as its been playing off-Broadway for YEARS).
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I LOVE The Fantasticks. I would see that before that closes again.

I really loved Celia, although it takes a basic knowledge of Spanish for it to be enjoyable, even if you go to one of the English performances.

All of them.
I ask in all honesty/What would life be?/Without a song and a dance, what are we?/So I say "Thank you for the music/For giving it to me."

thanks guys, hopefully i can get back to the city soon (I live there but i'm currently away at college) and i'll definitely check out next to normal and crimes of the heart. They're actually doing the Fantastiks at the equity stage here so I think I'll just wait until then. Thanks so much for the advice guys.
