Broadway: Young Frankenstein and Legally Blonde - Hello Fellow Lottery Winners!

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Day one of the Kari saga:

After a long subway ride from the airport, Kari arrived at about 8:30 in the morning. The game plan was to have her take a nap before our long day. We started talking and totally forgot about the whole nap idea. We had tickets for Legally Blonde that night, but we didn’t really have any set plans for the rest of our day.

We decided that we would try to win tickets to the matinee showing of Young Frankenstein. I didn’t think we would win, but I thought we might as well try. We had a backup plan if we didn’t win. We decided that we would just put our names in for the lottery and then go get a salad while we wait. There weren’t very many people at the lottery, but I have the most horrible luck at these things. I wouldn’t have been surprised if we didn’t win. To my great surprise I was the fifth name called! I screamed and ran up the stares. I was just so excited. We walked over to the theater to get our tickets and the man running the lottery said I was his favorite winner! Our tickets were front row and just two seats off of center! We then had two hours to waste until the show. I have to admit that it was the longest two hours of my life. We went to the Virgin Megastore and Toys’R’Us for candy!

The show was great! It was very much like the movie – dirty! I really enjoy the cast. We then went to dinner and awaited our next show.

Kari has been waiting to see Legally Blonde for a long time. It was important that she saw it now because she wanted to see it with as much of the original cast as possible, especially Emmet (her favorite). Kari was even more excited by the fact that the actor that plays Emmet got a haircut and looked cuter than usual. We had a good time! It’s a fun show.

Two shows in one day! Not bad! Two shows down, three more to go!
