My latest obsession:
AMERICAN IDIOT THE FUCKIN' MUSICAL. It's amazing. I'm not even kidding, I liked it more than Avenue Q, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Lion King (and yes, I have seen all those musicals). If you ever go to New York City and have the chance, either reserve tickets or hit up the TKTS booth, I got a Sunday Matinee ticket for $30, but they'll probably be selling out quicker and be more expensive because....
Billie Joe Armstrong has joined the cast! He's on Broadway as St. Jimmy between January 1 and sometime mid-Febuary. Of course, he was on break the weekend I went (just my luck, eh?) so I didn't get to see him. Which can be seen as good on two accounts, his understudy is a better singer than he is and I might not have gotten tickets had he been there.
But yeah, my trip to NYC was awesome. I got to see four shows! The Lion King (the girl who is currently playing Nala graduated from my high school!), Time Stands Still (IT WAS AWESOME), American Idiot, and Avenue Q (Off-Broadway).
One more thing, we got an after show chat with the cast of the Lion King. Last time we went to NYC we got to do this with the cast of In The Heights, but only like, four people came. The ENTIRE cast of The Lion King came to talk to us. And only us! IT MADE MY DAY. And I asked a question (about getting into their costumes and costume changes) and the guy that played Scar talked DIRECTLY TO ME. IT WAS WONDEROUS.
