OMG what a list - it will definitely provide a LOT of distraction from work! You're seeing all this in how many days??? I'm excited for you though. OMG, N2N, I LOVE THAT. And I still haven't seen Jersey Boys. Terrible of me, but I've always wanted to see other shows more!

I'm actually seeing them all in 10 days... I always try to cram in as many shows as I possibly can during each trip. :D And I love JB... :) Saw it several times on tour and twice on Broadway. :) It's a great show!

When will you be there this time? I am going the weekend of Sept. 25 with two of my co-workers, one of whom has never been to a Broadway show in her life. I decided to make it my mission to change that. :-)

Wow! We'll actually be in NYC during the same weekend! :D What shows are you seeing? Are you going to see Van at the BC/EFA Flea Market on the 27th? Maybe we can meet up for coffee or an after-theatre bite or something... it would be lovely to finally meet you. :)

We don't have a plan yet for which show(s) we'll be seeing. Jersey Boys and Wicked (the former I haven't seen, the latter my friend who used to live in NYC hasn't seen) are in the running, though. I have ordered the first-timer to look at websites this weekend to think about what she might want to see, since this trip sprung from her mentioning to me she'd never seen a B'way show before.

I won't be able to get to the Flea Market, fun as that would be. That morning, my dad is giving a sermon at church, then we'll be heading back to DC mid-afternoon.

I would love to meet up with you for whatever we can fit in, so long as you don't mind meeting my co-workers (whom I love), too. Just let me know what you think would work best. It would be great to get to meet in person, and I would love a first-hand account of how your trip is going.

I'm seeing JB on the night of the 25th. :) Will you be in town just Saturday night or will you be there Friday night as well?

And would love to just meet you and your co-workers even if it's for a little while! How often do I get the chance to meet a fellow Michael/ASL/Ty/Nuke/Kings/Pippin/Torchwood/slash lover? We have way too much in common! ;)

We'll be driving up after work on the Friday, so Saturday will be our only day in the city. You'll have to let me know what would work with your schedule, and I can then try to make that work with ours. I have already told my co-workers you'll be in town, and they would love meeting you, too.

You're right, we have way too much in common! Making it especially good to meet in person if given the opportunity. :-)

I'm actually seeing Memphis on Saturday (mat), but if you have some time before your show maybe we could catch a quick bite to eat before the evening show (I'm seeing "God of Carnage" that night, but we could meet anywhere in mid-town). Just let me know!

Can I ask a huge favour? The playbill collector in me will love you if you can get me a Bye Bye Birdie playbill please please please :)
Sheri: Michael - Kings2shutterbug93 on September 12th, 2009 05:32 am (UTC)
Most definitely!!! I can certainly pick up an extra BBB playbill for you while I'm there! :)
there would never be anyone for me but you: nycjessnic85 on September 12th, 2009 02:15 am (UTC)
Such an absolutely AMAZING line-up!!! :) The trip is going to be just incredible for you! We are really hoping to stay even longer next year (assuming we do a September trip again), so we can see more of the NYMF shows. Two weeks until we see you! :) Can't wait!

Looking forward to seeing you both!

Ah Billy Elliot is SUCH an amazing show!! :) I loved it so much when I saw it in January, I just had to go back! :) Thanks so much for your comment, I'm very excited about it. :D
