Jamie: You could talk about Broadway ticket costs again…
How it might as well be spring…
OR American Idol
OR your “Is sitting at a desk 9 hours a day a life” thing.
I’ll discuss ALL THREE.
Broadway Ticket Costs
Yes, I’ve blogged about this before, but I’m still fired up.
I want to see Mary Poppins so bad it hurts. She flies over the friggin’ audience, for chrissake! However, I’m NOT willing to spend at least $200* to see the show.
*This cost represents two tickets, for fairly crappy seats, plus all the added Ticket Master fees.
Other shows I want to see that I will most likely miss because it’s just too damned expensive include:
– A Chorus Line
– Spring Awakening
– Jersey Boys
(However, I bought tickets for Legally Blonde, as I’m no fool, and Jamie and I can get our pink on for her birthday.)
Anyway – why the FUCK are Broadway (Broadway in Chicago) shows so expensive? I think it’s very sad that someone like ME who loves musical theater so much is not attending these shows. Are they trying to kill the art form? The upside is that it’s forcing me to explore smaller shows at local theaters, like Mary Ernster in Wings at Apple Tree in Highland Park. However, Broadway is really killing itself. Something needs to change.
“It might as well be spring.”
Yeah, it sure as hell could be. But it’s not. It’s 18 degrees today and my car door was frozen shut this morning. FUCK that shit.
Is anyone actually following it this year? I’ve watched about 10 minutes so far. Danny Gokey, while cute, is a one-trick pony. The others sound like shit and seem to have the personality of a sleeping pill. I do like the new judge lady. She always has something logical to say. That said, I’m not wasting my time. I have more important things to do.
Is sitting at a desk 9 hours a day a life?
It pays the bills. But it sure as hell isn’t enough for those Broadway in Chicago tickets.
