The Book of Mormon Musical!

Got SRO (standing room only) tickets after getting to the theater at 10:30am (for tickets to the 2:00pm show) after watching this rendition of "I Believe" at the Tony Awards 

 which made me go and decide "I must go get some tickets to this musical!". There were about 14 people ahead of me which was pretty okay. Just wish I had brought something to sit on because man I was tired from standing.

Got here wayy too early!
View from my "seat" aka standing position!

Stood waiting for 2 hours (sadly didn't win any tickets from the lotto but a man from Thailand did win one so good for him!) they began selling SRO tickets to the line of people that had formed (at 12:30). Woo-hoo $27 for a ticket! A staff member told us we should go grab some lunch then come back to the theater before 2:00 for the show. 

I made sure not to read the synopsis provided by Wikipedia so as to avoid spoiling anything for myself and man did I not regret it! The theater itself is really nice and I really liked the stained glass windows on the side that would light up in tune with the song. A few times it was a bit hard to hear what the actors were saying but other than that it was a great show! Definitely not for those that get easily offended or are sensitive about religious topics. As much as I wanted to be able to sit in one of the theater's nice comfy seats, standing room was pretty okay too.

Can't wait to check out the other musicals on Broadway!


Dr. Oz Show Audience Experience

A few weeks ago I received an email from the Dr. Oz show saying that I had gotten tickets to attend the August 13th taping in the morning! This was as a result of my sudden desire to attend any/all the TV shows that are taped in NYC. I didn't manage to get any of the highly coveted ones but somehow I managed to get ones for Dr. Oz. They asked for me to simply reply back with my name and the name of my guest (my mom).

Finally came "show time". The ticket says to arrive at the studio (320 W 66th St) before 8:45 am in order to get tickets to attend the taping. Being the worrywart that I am, I tried to convince my mom that we absolutely HAD to be there before 7:30 am (based on my experiences with movie screenings) but my mom thought that it would be fine for us to wake up at 6:00 am instead. I prepared the best "jewel colored" shirt I had in my closet and paired it with a black cardigan, black pants and black flats. I was ready for the morning rush to get to the studio.

"The Giver" Red Carpet Premiere

I was lucky enough to snag 2 tickets to this screening yesterday and although the wait was quite long, the whole screening was such an experience. It was at Ziegfeld Theatre which is known for it's glimmering chandeliers in its lobby and the gorgeous interior of the theatre. It definitely made me feel very classy.

Fall in Love With Me - Ep 9-10

Just giving a heads up that I stopped watching it on this very episode because I just didn't like how the plot was developing. It felt a bit unrealistic and really all over the place. So this will be the last recap I do on this drama series. Sorry about that. I had meant to post this a while back but forgot all about it till now.
