Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
Broadway shows are expensive. So much so that I’m always looking for ways to find them cheaper. I did find a bunch, which I outlined in “How To Get Cheap Tickets For Broadway Shows in NYC” while back, but a friend of mine just turned me on to another, in a relatively unusual place…
Claiming a show is the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) is a bold statement to make but I’m very confident about my position on this one. The show I’m talking about forever changed my viewpoint about what a theme park show could be. It wasn’t just a good theme park show or a good Disney character show. This is just an amazingly enjoyable show featuring talented musicians, dancers and vocalists, some of whom just happen to be Disney characters.
What show am I talking about? I’ll give you a hint. It’s not at a U.S Disney park.
Sharon and I make no secret about our love for Broadway and, in particular, our love for Broadway musicals. Most of the current shows seem to be based on movies or around the songs of a famous musician. Coming up with an original idea isn’t easy and there’s no safety net of a built-in audience. So when someone pitched a musical about events that happened during 9/11, I’d imagine the initial response wasn’t very positive. But that’s exactly what the show “Come From Away” is about. And believe it or not, it’s one of the most endearing, uplifting and inspiring things I’ve seen in quite a while. The fact that the story is based around aviation didn’t hurt my investment level in the show any, either.
Everyone who was alive that day has a story of what they were doing. Knowing the audience of this website, I’d imagine there were a few of you who were flying or due to fly that day. “Come From Away” is based on the stories of people who were just in that situation, flying on a plane when the events of 9/11 happened.
