Broadway Traditions

"Broadway has been very good to me.  But then, I've been very good to Broadway." - Ethel Merman

A new tradition we have begun is to attend a local play every year on Mother's Day.  This year we attended Dirty Dancing (at the Pantages in Los Angeles.)
A Sunday evening performances allows time for a traditional late lunch at a favorite restaurant.  To remember the occasion, the free Playbill is great memorabilia to collect but the merchandise (not so free) is enticing as well. I buy 1 keychain from the play to enhance my daughters collection. (now over 203!)  

So far my top five plays are: Wicked, The Producers, Chicago, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King.

What are your favorite plays?


  1. Have you ever seen Rent? I saw it at Pantages a few years ago and it is by far my favorite...along with Wicked.

  2. I did see Rent in San Francisco. That one is pretty controversial, you either love it or hate it.


Thanks for sharing!
