Broadway has always been at the heart of play's succeeding here in America, and around the world. Some of the world's greatest plays have made a home here on Broadway. Play's like Anything Goes, West Side Story, Lion King, Annie, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, and many, many more have gotten their start and finales on this coveted street.
I have gone to see many plays on Broadway during my life. I have seen Phantom of the Opera twice, Rain twice, Hairspray once, The Lion King once, Sister Act once, Shrek the Musical once, Jersey Boys three times, Les Mis once, Wicked once, Annie once, and Something Rotten three times.
I love the theater. I love comedies and musicals. I am not a huge fan of drama's but I love the music that comes along with them like Wicked and Phantom. I love the orchestra and the singing. I just love the feel and hustle and bustle of the city around 7:30 on Broadway right before the curtains open at 8. It is a daily routine, and ritual that everyone around Broadway must observe.
If they were a lot cheaper, and I had lots of free time, I could go to the city and watch ten Broadway plays a day. I love them so much. It is impossible to leave the theater after a production, and not be excited, singing, and bouncing off of the walls with joy.
Plays come and go but the memories last a lifetime.
Have you ever seen a Broadway play? If so, which one, and did you enjoy it?
Peace and Love,
