Three-Show Weekend: Vlog & Review

Whirlwind is the first word that comes to mind when I try to describe this weekend. From the moment I woke up at 5:00am to catch an Amtrak into Manhattan, I hit the ground running and didn’t stop until I was back home in Boston.  First up on this three-show weekend was pre-show brunch with my friends Adeline, Diane, and Kayla in the heart of Greenwich village. We had reservations at Délice...

When Broadway Shows Close Quickly

My friend Adeline and I have been planning to see the play Significant Other on Broadway for a few months, and we’ve been patiently waiting for our spring trip into Manhattan to see it. However, the production, an off-Broadway transfer, was not performing well. The show was making around 20% of its potential gross per week¹, and the infamous Broadway message boards spoke of the play’s inevitable demise. The show’s...

Representation is important. I will repeat this as many times as it is necessary for you to understand it. Representation. Is. Important. As a straight white woman, I fully recognize my societal privilege. But women are still neither treated nor represented equally, and this needs to change.

One of my favorite things about being a Broadway theatre-goer is that there is always something new to see, do, or discover.

Something Rotten! Tour Vlog + The Ghostlight Project

In my first week and a half of living in Boston, I’ve already seen three shows–the first of which was the Something Rotten! tour at the Boston Opera House. But before we rushed tickets for the show, we decided at the last minute to head over to the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge to participate in The Ghostlight Project....

The Ultimate Guide to Discount Boston Theatre Tickets

I moved to Boston on Sunday. It only took an 8-hour long drive, 14 boxes, 4 bags, 3 suitcases, and a couple episodes of my favorite podcasts, but I made it! I’ve been planning this move for nearly a year now, so it feels surreal that I’m actually here–and I can’t wait to dive headfirst into the Boston theatre scene!...
