A few weeks ago, my friend Paige came to visit while on her spring break. We had talked about going to a Broadway show but were slightly wary about how the whole student rush thing worked. We did some research and found three shows we wanted to see. The next morning we got up early and made our way to the address of the theater. We decided we would see The Book of Mormon, Wicked or Matilda. We ended up choosing the book of Mormon.
We briskly walked through Times Square and eventually found the theater. There was already a line outside when we arrived. It was freezing out and unfortunately for me, I did not dress appropriately. Paige and I were determined to get tickets and ended up waiting in line for over two hours.
There were two ticket options. Standing room or lottery. We entered both and ended up getting standing room. Although we had to stand throughout the entire show, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. The plus side of getting standing room is that the tickets were only $27!
The show was amazing. The acting, dancing and singing were superb. The show was also incredibly funny. If you have a chance to see it, I would highly recommend it.
