‘Pictures From Home’ @ Studio 54: NYC (1/13/23)

If you know me, you know I’m a big fan of attending first previews, opening nights, or closing nights of shows. I learned Pictures From Home would have its first preview on January 13, and when I saw TodayTix had digital rush, I knew what I had to do – and I was able to grab rush tickets for the first preview of this show!

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!

‘Kimberly Akimbo’ @ Booth Theatre: NYC (12/22/22)

Kimberly Akimbo is a new Broadway musical I would recommend to literally everyone. This is such a feel good wholesome comedy that is also a bit heartbreaking. If you’re a fan of dysfunctional family dynamics and warm friendships, give this show a try – it would be hard to walk out of that theater without a big smile on your face (and maybe some tears in your eyes).

‘& Juliet’ @ Stephen Sondheim Theatre: NYC (12/21/22)

My time has finally come….to see & Juliet on Broadway! I’ve been eagerly anticipating this show for months! I didn’t make it a priority earlier because I was focusing on my London trip (and didn’t want to risk getting sick) but now I was ready and I was finally able to grab digital rush tickets from TodayTix!

‘Into The Woods’ @ St. James Theatre: NYC (12/13/22)

For someone who loves Into The Woods, I haven’t seen it nearly enough during its limited run at the St. James Theatre! This was my first (and last) time winning the Into The Woods digital lottery. (Last because you can only win on LuckySeat for any given show once every 60 days according to the rules. Yes I read the rules.)

‘Almost Famous’ @ Jacobs Theatre: NYC (12/11/22)

A rare Sunday evening performance of Almost Famous – since I was already in the city I knew I wanted to catch an evening show so what better to see than my comfort show, Almost Famous!

This was my 5th time seeing Almost Famous, but my first time since it officially opened on November 3rd, 2022! I’m glad I could see the show again in its final form. I last saw it on November 2nd, so at that point I felt like things were pretty set and I don’t think I noticed any changes since then (but it has been over a month since I saw the show!)

‘Kpop’ The Musical @ Circle in the Square: NYC (12/11/22)

Just two short weeks after it officially opened, KPOP The Musical on Broadway played its final performance on December 11, 2022 and I was fortunate enough to be able to see this wonderful show for a second (and final) time.

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ @ Lyric Theatre: NYC (11/15/22)

November 15, 2022 marks the start of a new year at Hogwarts. Welcome Year 4 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! This was the first performance of the new cast. And I already love them so much!!!

I’d also like to disclaimer that JKR does *not* profit off of Cursed Child ticket sales based on research, which is why I continue to see it. I assume she still gets a flat rate fee to use the characters, similar to how Universal Studios pays her a flat rate for Harry Potter world, but similarly buying a ticket to Universal does not directly profit JKR. She will get that flat fee regardless of how many Universal tickets are bought.

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ @ Lyric Theatre: NYC (11/13/22)

This weekend was insanly busy for me. I went to a concert Saturday night (Walk The Moon!), went to bed at 3am and was up and at a Broadway show by 2pm the next day, I don’t know how either. BUT. This wasn’t just any Sunday matinee. This was the final show of the Year 3 cast. I couldn’t miss one last chance to see this cast before graduation.

‘Hadestown’ @ Walter Kerr Theatre: NYC (11/9/22)

It’s been 4 months since my last trip to the underworld, so I was overdue for another visit! Hadestown is a show I always enjoy seeing, even if I don’t see it that often.
