Broadway Wisdom

I could write a week worth of posts today. 

If I could prop my eyeballs open.  

As it stands it's 1 a.m. and I'll be popping out of bed at 4:30 to go see Black Eyed Peas on The Morning Show.   Boom Boom Pow, baby! 

Thats what I'm talkin' about. 

I think I'm  taking that-city-that-doesn't-sleep thing too literally, which is super fun when you're in the moment, but when you're out of the moment it just makes you more vulnerable to bursting into tears when your hub suggests you get a drink out of the bathroom sink rather than buy a water bottle.   

So you know how I love famous people?   huh? huh? huh?  Well today was a stinkin' star studded, but I'll write my stinkin' star studded post tomorrow.   

Tonight I'm going to post about something else I love.  Movie wisdom.  Only I'm going to make it Broadway wisdom.  

Tonight we did something pop-U-lar! 





(BTW, New England Alyson wasn't able to come (sniff sniff) so I have no photographic evidence of her existence.) 

After two broadway musicals in a row--Shrek and Wicked--I realize the universe is trying to send me a top five list of Broadway wisdom to pass on to you: 

1.  It's not easy being green.  

2.  Sometimes being beautiful isn't pretty. 

3.  Fairy tales need to be updated. 

4.  Happiness isn't always what happens when all your dreams come true.  

5.  A lie is just the truth from another perspective. 


All things that make you go hmmmmmm . . . 




That's it.  That's all I got for ya.  

Buh bye now.

April said...

So was it great? Did you love it? Do you want to see it over and over again? Did you get a bottle of water?

April said...

Am I here all by myself?

April said...

Keep having fun! I'm sad you didn't get to see Alyson. :(

Sandi said...

Hey April :) I am so darn jealous of Crash's trip that I just cannot think of anything snappy to say at all.

April said...

Kritta....I mean April....OUT!

April said...

I know! How rude! We need to plan a trip...while I'm at Lake Powell I'll have to think of something!

Sandi said...

Well sure, just go ahead and tell me that you are going to Lake Powell. Now I can be jealous of you too. Blah- planning weddings is NO fun.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I get to stalk sandi's nephew cuz he is awesome and got called HERE!

Kritta22 said...

Wait...I think it's her nephew....
what matters is that he is related to awesome sandi and he is a rockstar.

Kritta22 said...

so was it as good, Wicked, as everyone says it is?

I judge all my viewing pleasure off of crash.

Kritta22 said...

If you haven't noticed, my shift key is being dumb and I'm not happy about it. Of course the time I talk about it, it works. LAME!

Kritta22 said...

I'm plotting our quilt. I have enough to make two...maybe more. what do you think?

I feel bad it's taken forever.

Kritta22 said...

Mary said...

Dang girlfriend! Sounds like fun! I saw "Wicked" in Chicago. (sorry, I know that should be in italics in stead of quotes. I just don't know how to do that in your comment box:))

It's such a great musical!

The girl who originally played Glinda on Broadway does another HILARIOUS sketch called "Taylor, the latte boy" check it out on youtube.

Barbaloot said...

Bummer about Alyson---but SO fun about all your Broadway stuff! And you know, I never really thought about, but I bet it would be quite difficult to be green. Hmm...

Melanie J said...

I love Wicked. I've seen it twice.

Fairy tales totally need to be updated.

Smart Helm said...

That's it.. I gotta go see Wicked. I know all the songs.

T said...

I'm soon going to be the last Wicked Virgin in the world!

glad you're having fun, but get some sleep already!

val of the south said...

Wow Crash, what a trip so far!!

T, you're not alone - I haven't seen it, nor heard any songs from it! Yes, I've been living under a rock!!

Sounds like a fabulous time! Can't wait for the next update!

I can't wait to stop using so many exclamation points!! I must be very excited for you!!!

Lara said...

Love that show. I saw it on Broadway a couple years ago and am dying to see it again.

I love your nuggets of wisdom. You are just so smart.

sara said...

I was going to boycott your blog since you're in one of my favorite cities ever, going to all the musicals I want to go to, and IT's NOT FAIR.
Wahhhh.
I hope you got some great pics of Fergie. It would be even better if she "had an accident" as she tends to do when the bathrooms are far away.
Have fun living my dreams!

Mariko said...

I think I'm actually like the 3rd commentor here.

Jealousy is green. Not easy at all.

Anjeny said...

So glad to hear you're having so much fun.

I don't know what "Wicked" is all about, haven't seen it, heard it's music so I'm a WICKED virgin too like T. Only difference from Val is that I truly do live on a ROCK..lol.

You know, you're making me wish you were taking the same tour trip as my daughter..you have better updates than the lady who was supposed to keep us (the ones who are left behind) updated on theirs.

Love the way you keep sneaking little teaching moments in your adventures...like 'you can take a dummy away from teaching but you can never take the teaching outta her'.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I'm so bummed I didn't see you either! This is what happens when you have stinkin' kids who have things you must go to because it's the end of the school year and they've accomplished something...yada, yada, yada. I had to make the wretching decision to miss Wicked for the kiddos. Boo!

Can't you just skip DC and come to Connecticut? Huh? Huh? Pretty please!
