Over the holidays and through Valentine's Day - Zachary and I were all about seeing shows - Broadway and plays! We love going to shows and have been since I was in college :)
Our regiment going to shows must consist of going to lunch or dinner after in the city - usually "The Italian Village" which is located in the Theater district of Chicago.
The first musical we saw together was "Wicked" the first time it came to Chicago. OH MAN! I instantly fell in love with this show! The music is INCREDIBLE - so if you haven't seen this yet - go see it! We also saw it a second time a little over a year ago when it came back to Chicago! Hands down - I wish I was Elphaba - If I were ever to be in Broadway - I would want to play Elphaba because I just need to sing "Defying Gravity."
Over Christmas, Zachary and I saw "The Book of MOOOORRRMMMOOOOONNNNN...HELLO!" If you didn't understand that - we saw "The Book of Mormon." Unbelievably funny and a must see - FOR ADULTS. It is a little crude at times...but the music and comedy is so good - no wonder it won 9 Tony awards! Seriously - you need to go :)
Then over Valentine's Day, Zachary took me to my first Chicago play at the Goodman Theater. He got us a box at the theater and we had a blast watching "Other Desert Cities." It was a great time - although it was a drama piece - it was such a cool experience as we went to Petterino's for brunch beforehand and were treated amazingly - and then headed to a box at the Goodman. What an amazing time!
So now that we have been going to shows - I am starting to collect playbills! I am making a binder and will have to share it when I have finished prepping it :)
I think that if you ever get the chance to go to a show -you should do it. Whether it's in Chicago, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Colorado, New York - take advantage of it. It's so worth it - just a wonderful time with you and your significant other :) What is your favorite show you have seen? I would love to know!
