My friend Kim worked some magic. While we were at the Intergroom trade show in New Jersey, she managed to get us 6Th row center seats at Mama Mia on Broadway, for FREE! Not only that, but she arranged for us to be picked up at our hotel, dropped nearly at the door of the Winter Garden Theater (which is beautiful!) and then picked up and escorted back.
I have never been to New York City (other than passing through) and it was a gift to go there with fabulous friends Kim and Barbara. We were all agog at the lights and the people and the vendors and the flavor of the place.
The show was a slice of vibrance with a heaping side dish of song... ending up with the entire audience standing, clapping, singing and swaying. We came out drunk on the music and the lights and the energy of performance. I am feeling so lucky to have had this opportunity... it is a memory that will sparkle for me for years to come.
