Hmmm... somehow missed that whole NY update.  I wonder how that happened.  I guess I should throw a quick one in here for posterity.

Somewhere along the line, I forgot to be quick.

When we went into NY City last weekend, we decided to stay over an additional night and catch a second show.  We decided not to be picky and see whatever we could get for discounted tickets.  If you are on a budget, aren't picky and don't mind waiting in line, this is the way to go: http://www.tdf.org/TDF_ServicePage.aspx?id=56 .  This place has tickets mostly at 50% off and no handling fee.  Of course, they also only take cash or traveler's check.  You have to get there early.  I was in line about 12:30 and got my tickets at 3:00 for an 8:00 show.  They don't have tickets for the shows that are still selling out regularly and you can only get the tickets for the very next show time, no advance tickets.

So for instance, I couldn't get tickets to Wicked or The Little Mermaid, but tickets were available for Avenue Q (a must see BTW), Mary Poppins, Phantom, Hairspray, Spamalot, Mamma Mia! and Rent (just to name a few).  We decided to go see Spamalot in spite of my reservations about whether Monique would like it.  She hates Monty Python, not at all into that weird British humor.  She has not been able to force herself to sit through The Holy Grail or Life of Brian.



This show absolutely made the trip completely worthwhile.  I can't recommend it enough (after Wicked).  :-)

Last weekend for our 26th anniversary, Monique and I both took off Thursday and Friday and went into NY for 3 days and caught two Broadway shows, The Little Mermaid and Spamalot.  We had a ticket / hotel package that included The Little Mermaid, so I'll review that one here.



Oh, fun little side note.  I have never in my life seen so many young girls in one place all dressed up in little princess costumes.  Too cute.

I know, I know.  Some of you are anxiously awaiting reviews of The Little Mermaid and Spamalot from my anniversary trip Thursday through Saturday.  And some of you are probably wondering why I haven't responded to many LJ posts lately.  Sorry.  Work is just that bad that I haven't had time.  Details will come later.  I promise.

(cue up the music)
I am not dead yet; I can dance and I can sing.
I am not dead yet; I can do the Highland Fling.
I am not dead yet; no need to go to bed.
No need to call the doctor 'cuz I'm not yet dead.

He is not yet dead; that's what the geaser said.
He is not yet dead; that man is off his head.
He is not yet dead.  Put him back in bed.
Keep him off the cart because he's not yet dead
