A Whole New World | Aladdin on Broadway


Sebastian and I spent some alone time in the city last week as guests of Tieks at Aladdin on Broadway. I was 7 years old when I saw my first musical (Singin’ in the Rain) and was a tad skeptical about Sebastian’s ability to sit through the entire performance at the age of 5 but Aladdin is so high-energy from the singing and dancing to the bright colors and technical aspects that he was engaged the entire time.

I can’t believe it took me so long to see Avenue Q and I’m really glad I did. The show is clever, entertaining, and left us in stitches:

I’ve been racking my brain trying to remember the year I first saw Blue Man Group New York. I was with my parents and brother which leads me to believe it was the mid to late nineties. All these years later, the wordless theatrical show is still going strong, a true testament to its broad appeal. I saw it again today with completely new eyes thanks to my adorable, soon-to-be five year old date.
