I really can't decide what I want to see tomorrow. I'm looking at the list of shows on Talkin' Broadway and all that's jumping out at me is A Chorus Line, Legally Blonde, and In the Heights. I wouldn't mind seeing A Chorus Line or In the Heights again, but if anyone wants to recommend something different, feel free. (I want to see August but I don't have the 3.5 hours to do it in)

Thanks!

Well, is there anything running that you haven't seen but are curious about?

Personally, I liked Mamma Mia and Spamalot. Chicago is also good. Don't know what your taste is.

The only one that I haven't seen and I'm curious about is August (which will have to wait like a week or so).

Go see Sunday in the Park With George

I've seen that already.

I would say Legally Blonde. It's actually pretty good, and you definitely feel like you've gotten your money's worth.

Well, then I guess it all depends on what you're in the mood for.

Well, there are your three choices any of which sound like good ones to me. Legally Blonde is getting a new Margot next month so if you like the current one you could see her again.

If you want something fun you could always go see Xanadu, Mamma Mia or Hairspray (especially if you haven't seen George Wendt and since Darlene Love is leaving this month).

If you want something slight more serious there's Chicago, Sunday In the Park With George, or Spring Awakening.

If I only had this problem more often.
So, that was the Drowsy Chaperone. Oh, I love it so much. I know it's not a perfect show...but it does what a musical is supposed to do. It takes you to another world, and it gives you a little tune to carry with you in your head for when you're feeling blue. Ya know?

Is Legally Blonde's student rush hard to come by? I'd like to see it but since the weather is supposed to be bad I don't want to have to get there too early.

EDIT: Sorry, clever name! re: I hate to do this, but... help me pick something to see tomorrow.

1. Legally Blonde is total fluff. But really well done and fun fluff. I brought my 8th graders to see it, but wasnt looking forward to it. It was simply: a blast.

Wouldn't want to see it AGAIN, but it was worth it once.

2. If nothing is peaking your interest though: why go at all? I know if I'm REALLY in the mood (and it sounds like you are not) nothing will truly be worth it to me. Go hit a museum or something else.

For sheer unadulterated fun, NOTHING beats Xanadu! It's NOT the movie, moves like lightening and you'll have a great time. And it's only 90 minutes.

And there's nothing wrong with fun fluff on a yucky afternoon. It may be raining outside but it's always sunny inside the theatre.

I'm in the mood to see SOMETHING. It's just a matter of what. Legally Blonde is sounding kind of good right now.


Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!

Legally Blonde is fun to see at least once. If you haven't seen it, I would suggest that.

Or Gypsy. :)

Based on what I've read, Legally Blonde's rush line wildly varies. Some posters have reported showing up at 1:00 and getting tickets, but on other mornings, they're gone by 10:30. The bad weather may keep people away tomorrow.

Thanks. Maybe I'll just see what the line looks like when I go there, and then if it's really crowded I'll find something else.

Legally Blonde has been pretty not so bad lately except for Nikki's last day which was kind of scary- you should be okay.
