My 21st birthday was on Monday, for which I got a balcony ticket to A Little Night Music... plus lots and lots of drinks (not Broadway related but good nonetheless!). I can't wait for January!

So, in Nov my parents and I went to NYC for Thanksgiving as part of my Christmas gift [and my parents 30th anniversary which is Dec. 30.] So we saw Shrek, Billy Elliot, Rockettes and the Macy's Parade.

Thennnn this morning [we celebrate Christmas a day early since we go to my grandparents early in the morning on Christmas] my parents had this gift that they wanted me to open last. I was hoping it would be some kind of tickets ... I was thinking it would be Shrek tickets ... but it was two tickets to see Sutton Foster in concert on Feb. 19!!!! I was totally freaking out! I NEVER saw that one coming! I really wanted tickets but it sold out so fast, I was all depressed when they went on sale after they sold out in like two days. But then come to find out mom bought me two the day they went on sale! re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008? re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008? I LOVE my parents!

Plus I'm going to see Shrek again on Jan. 28th with a friend of mine! I'm SOOO EXCITEDDD!! re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008? re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008?

My father is taking me up to New York at some point this year as his gift to me.

My Mom is paying for my greyhound or train ticket the next time I go up.

That's about all the gifts I'm getting this year...

Our main Christmas gift was a trip to New York in January. We're all seeing SHREK, my sisters are going to NYCB, and lil ole me is seeing Stephen Sondheim and Frank Rich at Lincoln Center. Naturally, I'm dying.

BUT, this morning I still opened Patti at Les Mouches, a biography of Brando, and Harold Guskin's "How to Stop Acting."
Some people paint, some people sew, I meddle.
