Take A Break - Obsess Over A Musical

It's been years since I've seen a Broadway Musical. Growing up, my family would take trips to New York and we would go all of the time. As you get older, things change, and you want to spend your money on friends, food, shopping, and going out - and you let Broadway disappear. My challenge for all of you is to take a break and find a musical that you love. Download the soundtrack, learn all of the words, save up $50-$100.00 and go see it on Broadway the next time your life brings you to New York.

My friend, Rori, and I decided we were going to see Evita. We never go see shows when I'm in New York. I'm not sure why - we always prioritize other things instead. This trip we decided we HAD to see it - after all, Ricky Martin, was a lead role! I put aside $100.00 for the show and it was the best way I could have spent my money. You cannot feel anymore "New York" than when you go see a show. For just a few hours, I was able to leave the crazy daily hustle, relax, and enjoy - and of course, Rori and I were singing along. Go try it - it's the perfect way to relax, enjoy the arts, and give your love to the Big Apple!
