Broadway in Chicago

I just got my tickets for the upcoming Broadway in Chicago Series. Every year they have a different corporate sponsor and this year it just happens to be Walgreens?!? Walgreens is interested in culture? I had no idea!

There are some good shows this year, I'm actually excited about seeing almost all of them.

Dirty Dancing - not so much, the movie was ok when I was a teenager and sorta thought Patrick Swayze was hot. But hey, it's making it's US Debut in Chicago - so that's pretty cool!

My Fair Lady - what young gay boy doesn't dream of being Eliza Doolittle with her little cockney accent and dirty dress? Could I have some more sir? Oh wait, that's Oliver, oops.

The Drowsy Chaperone - this was huge on Broadway, didn't get a chance to see it last year when I was in NYC, so excited to see it on tour.

Sweeney Todd - Over the last few years I've grown to enjoy this show more than I have in the past, although I'll be a little sad that Angela Lansbury nor Patti Lupone will be starring in this production. But hey pussys in a pie, that can't be all bad can it?

Avenue Q - OMG, saw this in Vegas two years ago, what a fucking fantastic show. I can't wait to see it again!

Overall, looks like a great lineup and I can't wait to go!!! I've got two tickets, someone want to go with me?

We all should get together and go see some shows. Have you seen Wicked or Jersey Boys yet?
