And I thought January came fast. While I only saw a few shows in January, I saw some majorly epic productions. First, I saw newly revamped version of Love Never Dies which was a train-wreck.

Ever since my […]Read more "Broadway Marquees #2 – Vivian Beaumont, Belasco, Booth & Broadhurst Theatres"
After a long discussion with Delta, I finally secured my very inexpensive tickets from San Jose to New York City for October. I had tickets this past Spring to New York City, but an unexpected health issue arose and I wasn’t able to make it. Luckily, (or unluckily) I was hospitalized and because of that I was […]Read more "The October Broadway Vacation"
I get asked this question a lot: “What shows should I see on Broadway?” I get asked from friends who are visiting New York City for the weekend, teachers who are taking their students on an extended field trip and even friends who live in the city. Now, I usually try to answer that question, keeping […]Read more "Five Shows You Should See on Broadway – #3"
