Today I’m grateful for Broadway. Broadway has helped me through life about as much as anything. I’ve learned a lot of lessons from seeing Broadway shows and gotten much strength from them. Their stories are moving, they are fun, they are positive. This year I’ve fallen in love with Broadway again. I’ve traveled into New York City, about 3 hours from me, at least once a month for the past year or so. I’ve seen Kinky Boots, Big Fish, Pippin, Matilda, Mothers and Sons, and If/Then. I’m going in tomorrow to see Hedwig, it was the one thing that I’ve wanted to see all year but I could not find tickets. I just kept searching and search and finally found one on Thursday. My persistence paid off!
Broadway is magical for many reasons but mainly because it’s like watching a stage full of people see their dream fulfilled. There is something about the mystic of being a Broadway actor. Going to see shows always rejuvenates me creatively. I find myself writing more, reading more, chasing more dreams.
And that’s what we should be doing all the time, chasing more dreams, right?
