My Favorite Broadway Shows

My family and I LOVE to go to a Broadway show every time we are in the city. My Mom collects Playbill programs, my brother always buys the music CD and I always get the bag of M&M’s at intersession. It’s definitely a family tradition! I still remember my first Broadway show, The Lion King when I was about 9 years old. What a musical! This show will always be one of my top three all-time favorites, with Wicked and Mamma Mia! as well. There’s something about these shows that I can see them over and over again!

Like myself at the time, she was attending Loyola University in Chicago at the time.  When you are young the best advice I can give to a college student is to visit ALL your friends  in college. I used to have a blast and met a lot of interesting people that today I can call friends. That being said, my friend Cristi made sure I had an epic experience during my short 3-day visit! 🙂    I remember being so excited for my weekend getaway. Mostly because I was going to visit a new city for the first time and also two of our friends from High School got to join us as well.  Imagine six girls sleeping in a college dorm… There were suitcases and mattresses all over the apartment, it was a mess but …
