‘Shucked’ & Album Release Party @ Nederlander Theatre: NYC (6/4/23)

I didn’t think I’d be walking on a second Broadway stage this year, but here we are!

The short version: I saw Shucked for a matinee, and attended their ~Album Release Party~ in the evening thanks to Show-Score! That included a musical performance of songs that never made it into the show, jokes that were cut, complimentary drinks & snacks, and having a photo op on stage! (It was also supposed to include a signed album, but they ran out……..)

I’m going to try and be as honest and open in my reviews as I can. Please note these are my personal opinions and I’m always open to discussions!

I’ve been hearing about the play Grey House and I was curious to see it for myself. I can’t say I’ve ever seen a play marketed as horror before so I was very curious!

‘Camelot’ @ Vivian Beaumont Theatre: NYC (5/13/23)

For Saturday’s matinee I finally saw Camelot! Thanks to the LincTix program that Lincoln Center has, I was able to buy a ticket for just $32 (+ fees) with a great view! I bought this ticket back in early March, and early May was the first available time to purchase a ticket at the discounted rate – but it was worth the wait!

‘Prima Facie’ @ Golden Theatre: NYC (5/10/23)

I didn’t think I would be back seeing Prima Facie so soon, but the lottery willed it so. I’m convinced this lottery is just really easy to win, because this is the second time I’ve won! Apparently there are only 10 lotto tickets per show, at $10 each. So I’m really shocked how easy I’ve found this to win – since I’m usually only entering for one show a week.
