Broadway Dreaming

broadway1

With tickets to ‘Sunset Boulevard‘ and ‘War Paint’ already secured, my Mom and I are contemplating a third show for this year’s Broadway trip. Bette Midler will be appearing in ‘Hello, Dolly!’ but that might – just might – be diva overkill. I’m leaving toward ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ or ‘The Great Comet’ but am open to a play as well. (That might help the wallet too, which was sorely depleted for the first two shows.)

Having said that, there’s nothing like a big Broadway musical to take one away from the troubling real world that daily encroaches on television and social media. I’ve been slowly moving away from both because they’re filled with lying pundits of a dangerous administration. I’ll fight when the time comes, but right now I want escapism, and Broadway is perfect for that. Whenever I need a quick pick-me-up, I go back in my mind to those performances we’ve already seen: Kinky Boots, Pippin, Mothers & Sons, The Bridges of Madison County, Hedwig & the Angry Inch, Bullets Over Broadway, Fun Home, and The Humans.
