Come and meet those dancing feet,
On the avenue I'm taking you to,
Hear the beat of dancing feet,
It's the song I love the melody of,
Little "nifties" from the Fifties,
Innocent and sweet;
Sexy ladies from the Eighties,
Who are indiscreet.
They're side by side, they're glorified
Where the underworld can meet the elite,
- 42nd Street
-my new spring break plans
Holy Cow! I am off to New York today! It was a really last minute decision that we would leave for The Big City on Tuesday and come back on Friday, so I don't have any blog posts to run. But it's 10:09 today on Tuesday and I am so excited I can't even stand it. I'm like a little kid who gets to go to the fair for the first time.
I have been to The Big Apple before; 3 years ago. I feel like it's really time to go back, though. WE are only there for a short time but we will b doing anything and everything. We will go see the freedom towers, see a couple shows, do some eating, shopping and some more. We aren't sure yet what shows we want to see. Because I am a musical freak we will see AT LEAST two. Three that are on our list are Avenue Q, Jersey Boys, and Anything Goes.
I am in love with Avenue Q. I have been since I heard the musical a year ago. Everything is so comical and funny!
MY Theatre Company is doing Anything Goes this summer which makes me even more excited to see it. I really want to see it so that I can get a feel for the show that I have an opportunity to be in.
And lastly, Jersey Boys. I really don't know much about it, but everyone tells me that it is must see so I am pretty excited to look into that one too!
Do you have any ideas?

Lastly, I really wanted to share the reason why I choose the song 42nd Street, the title song from it's musical. First of all, the musical that I was in was a life-changing experience. But also, it shows the differences in time periods and styles. It is a welcome to the world of theatre.
I hope you all are enjoying, or have a good Spring Break!
