On The Town Closing (September 6, 2015)

September 17, 2015

My high school theater teacher and I went to New York (for something super important, which you’ll be getting a multi-multi part story about soon enough).

We got there in time to see something Sunday night. Of course the first thing we did was wait in the Hamilton lottery, but alas, we did not get in.

So, we went to TKTS and got tickets to On the Town – for its closing night!

What an energy this theater had. It was really sweet and wonderful. For one thing, the audience was with the performers a million percent. The clapping would just go oh so oh so long! The girl who sang, “I Can Cook, Too” got a standing ovation in the middle of the show (after that song)!

It was incredible how in love everyone was with the show and the performers. And of course the performers were so emotional. During the curtain call, there were tears and it seemed like no one wanted to leave. I got a little teary-eyed and wondered if I was super lame for that, until I looked over at B and saw she was teary-eyed too.

There’s something about theater. It’s just beautiful.

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
