Anything Goes!

I've been thoroughly enjoying my February vacation, aside from working on a bunch of course work and sleeping past 5am, I've been relaxing and enjoying time at home. I had initially wanted to go snowboarding over the break, but winter hasn't been cooperating - so a day in NYC was plan B!  
We headed into the city yesterday, we went right over to tkts to get tickets. There was quite the line, everyone and their uncle was in NYC for February break.  So I waited  in line and people watched and Mom ran off to a quick work meeting.
 Our top choice was Jersey Boys, but they didn't have two seats near one another. So I decided "Anything Goes" would work! We wound up with seats in the 7th row of the balcony for 50% off! I love tkts!
 We wandered around, grabbed some lunch, went into the GAP, and literally bumped into old family friends from back in South Jersey, talk about small world in NYC! Then it was show time!
 The show has such a great cast! It hasn't even been open a full year so it's still the original cast, Sutton Foster and Joel Grey! Um, yes please! John McMartin was in it as well, and we had seen him in "Into the Woods" 10 years ago (good gracious, it's been that long!).
It was such a great show! Sutton Foster was amazing! She totally carries the show and has such a great voice (she deserved that Tony)! The huge tap number was just amazing, I can still hear the tapping!

It was a great day, I love being able to see Broadway shows - mom and I were recalling all of the shows we've seen over the years - such great memories!

I do love theatrical shows, but I can't remember the last one I've seen. It's been years. Great photos!
