and I spent the day in New York yesterday. We had tickets for the evening show of Legally Blonde. We attempted to get into town in time for the ticket lotto for the matinee of Wicked but unfortunately we just missed it. We did go in and look at the merchandise and lanchid
bought me the Wicked Christmas tree ornament. Then we decided to locate the theater where Legally Blonde would be playing. We found it and started thinking about lunch. We also thought about maybe catching the matinee of The Drowsy Chaperone. I'd already seen it and lanchid
wasn't really excited enough about it to pay full price. The performance was an hour later than Wicked, so they hadn't done their ticket lotto yet. So we crossed the street to where The Little Mermaid was playing and tried to see if we could get tikcets for that.
I may have mentioned before how very much I love Sherie Rene Scott. Well, she's playing Ursula. She's one of those people that I would pay just about anything to see. Factor in that The Little Mermaid is lanchid
's favorite Disney movie and I don't think there was really any way we weren't going to see this. The performance was sold out, but we got ourselves in the cancellation line. And we got tickets! Absolutely awesome tickets! Eighth row, center stage tickets!!( review of The Little Mermaid )
So after The Little Mermaid we were terribly hungry and we went to Planet Hollywood where we had a nice meal. We did a little shopping and went to Rockefeller Center for a quick look at the tree (oh my God was it crowded!) At one point we decided to duck through the NBC store. We went through the revolving door which was moving at a pretty good clip. lanchid
went first, and while I was waiting for the next section, this woman runs in front of me and jumps into the door with lanchid
. This would've been merely rude, but as she was also dragging behind her a four-year old child, it was incredibly dangerous. I could see immediately that the child was not going to get all the way inside before the door shut, and with horrified visions of crushed children (and missing Legally Blonde), I grabbed the handle and applied my not inconsiderable weight to the opposite direction, stopping the door. The woman looked more annoyed than anything else and I don't think she realized that I probably saved her kid from being bisected lengthwise by a revolving door.
After that near-disaster we grabbed a few pictures of the tree and then headed to the theater to see ( Legally Blonde )
It was amazing.
After the show we headed home, stopping along the way for some food. It was a wonderful day. Usually when I get to the theater, I'm either by myself or going with someone who's not really as into it as I am. It was so nice to spend the day with someone who really loved it as much as I did.
