Today I ditched work to go see the matinee of Something Rotten! It was super funny and chock full of Shakespeare references. I totally loved it, but I totally understand why it didn't win the Tony. As much as I laughed and as much fun as I had, it was no Rent, Wicked, The Lion King, or Aida. My favorite part of the show was all the tap dancing. I am such a sucker for a big tap number. I thought they could have made a little more use of the female characters, but I did enjoy the two women in major roles.
Today I also got tickets for Therese Raquin in October. I'm not a big fan of plays but I am a big fan of Judith Light, and Keira Knightly's not too bad. So the list of shows I'm hunting cheap tickets for has dwindled to three: The Book of Mormon, Fun Home, and Hamilton.
