We just came home from Manhattan. It was a long day, but it was well worth it.
We arrived at Broadway about 1:15 p.m. for the 2:00 p.m. matinee and the line was so long. Soon enough the long line was already moving, a signal that people were already allowed entry into Broadhurst Theater.
The theater was filled to the rafters. We were seated in Orchestra and I really loved it because we saw every single facial expression of the performers. It’s great to be seated close enough to the stage.
Lea Salonga as always was awesome. The depth and good quality of her voice hasn’t changed. The last time we saw her was during her stint with Flower Drum Song. The rest of the casts were also very good. Really a show that’s very well worth every penny spent.
Oh, and I can tell you too, that Lea was very accommodating. You’re probably expecting that it would have been me requesting for a photograph with her, but you’re very well mistaken. Here’s the proof:
Frank unshaven and all w/ Lea
Here’s some more pics:
After the show, we decided to have dinner at nearby, newly opened Ruby Tuesday in Times Square.
We waited 25 minutes to be seated. It’s the same juicy burgers I have grown to love. The only thing is, we may not be coming back to this location again. We prefer the Ruby Tuesday in Carle Place, Long Island. Oh, and the crowd, it seemed like there’s someone out there coming to bite you. It was just too crowded, but why am I complaining. I should know it was such a beautiful day, and temperature in the mid 70’s. Everyone just wanted to enjoy the last few days of summer (oh, did I just write summer?), grabe so unusually warm at this time of the year.
This is it for today…in My World.
