  1. When we first moved to NYC, my wife and I attended "Raisin in the Sun" starring Sean "P Diddy" Combs & Felicia Rashad. After we arrived, my wife told me that earlier in the day, she had ordered flowers to be sent to P Diddy backstage with a note saying "Break a Leg"! and signed with our names and our seat numbers!!!

  2. Seeing Nathan Lane and Faith Prince in Guys and Dolls was the most wonderful Broadway play ever. Ever since I saw Oliver on Broadway I've been hooked on live theater. So glad I live in NYC!!

  3. I have so many Broadway memories, so I have to go with the show that started it all--Titanic. It was my first trip to New York and I just sat there in total awe. I was especially taken with Brian d'Arcy James and have been lucky enough to see him in many shows since then.

  4. When I was eight years old I was taken to my first musical, Phantom of the Opera. When the chandelier came down directly over us I was absolutely, positively convinced that we were going to die. My happiness when I realized we were not dead cannot be expressed.

  5. I must say the first time I saw Rent was a life-changing experience. Someone I knew randomly couldn't use their ticket, so I said sure, I'll take it. It was literally for the second to last row of the orchestra, but I clearly remember just sitting in the seat, blown away after the show ended. The vibrancy, energy, passion of the show and of the cast was something I had never seen before. I wanted to just stay in my seat and see it again. I ended up going back the next week. And that was the start of me falling in love with theatre and Broadway, and I haven't looked back since.

  6. There are so many... Most recent is when I saw Spamalot. Sara Ramirez (the lady of the lake) appeared on stage and I thought she would just but the requisite beautiful woman for the show and then she began to sing. I was then and still am in total awe of her amazing talent. She is gorgeous, an amazing actress and has a voice that is second to none. I would love to see her in a show again maybe with Bernadette Peters.

  7. My favorite Broadway memory was when I went to my first Broadway show- The Lion King. The tickets were given to me by my aunt as a surprise one summer, and I couldn't even begin to imagine all of the elaborate staging and costumes and all of the talent in the show.

  8. One of my favorite Broadway memories is from when I did student rush for Next to Normal with my friend. We had been waiting for a few hours when J. Robert Spencer came out of the theater. Of course, everyone on the line went nuts. After the show (which was AMAZING), we went to the stage door, where Bobby Spencer recognized us from the line that morning. It was pretty awesome =]

  9. My favorite Broadway memory was the last performance of Gypsy starring Bernadette Peters. It was May 30, 2004. Before the show, Shubert Alley was filled with fans and even the cast members were out before - it was sad but exciting. Then the show itself was unreal - the energy was so high, you could feel it lifting you off your feet. Plus, I met some of my best friends at that performance. What a thrilling day it was.

  10. My first Broadway show was The Apple Tree with Kristin Chenoweth. She was so incredibly warm and kind at the stage door (Marc Kurdish and Brian Darcy James were... not) that it really set the bar for an evening at the theater. I must also add that, though not a typical broadway memory, the moment I met Stephen Sondheim will forever be one of the best in my life. I said "It's an honor, sir. Thank you for 'Finishing The Hat.'" He politely smiled and said "You're welcome, young man." At which point, I internally combusted.

    My favorite Broadway memory was just a few months ago, when I was able to see Sondheim performed on Broadway for the first time in A Little Night Music. Seeing Angela Lansbury perform some of my favorite songs was unbelievable. I worried that being young, I would never get to see Sondheim's amazing work on stage. Imagine my joy when I heard my favorite actress Bernadette Peters, who I have seen twice in concert, had been cast in this beautiful show.

  12. My greatest Broadway memory was this past January, when I went to see A Little Night Music with my father. I was dying to see Catherine Zeta-Jones because she's one of my idols. The tickets were my for my sixteenth birthday. Once we got there I couldn't believe what great seats we had, it was the perfect day. When the show started I was amazed. Even before I heard Bernadette Peters was going to be in the new cast I was hoping to see the musical again, now I'm determined to take my mom to see it and experience the magic I felt watching it.

  13. My first weekend living in NYC my friend took me to lotto West Side Story. I won literally the last ticket (the lotto guy asked for people wanting a single seat, then had the three of us guess close to the number he was thinking of.) I won and then got tickets front row center to see my favorite show on stage for the first time ever. It's on the top five best nights of my life. It meant so much to me to win that ticket. : )

  14. After spending the evening in a prolonged choral rehearsal for the next night's performance in Carnegie Hall, I went to see Sondheim on Sondheim with my mother. Now, my mother, who is not a theatre enthusiast, let alone a Sondheim enthusiast, appreciated all that she could with a content smile on her face just to see that I was happy. I, on the other hand, was generally beaming with unadulterated and brilliant bliss. To be in New York City, on the verge of performing in a global center and guardian of the arts, seeing a show highlighting the work of a revolutionary genius, with whom I am deeply in love, is what can only be called magic, absolute magic. Leaving the theatre, the sky was tinted blue and the light rain left everything glittering in the moonlight.

    And, I met Barbara Cook.
    That was awesome.

  15. My best (and only) Broadway memory was seeing Next to Normal last October and getting to meet the cast after the show. When the music started, me and my friend saw a figure walk across the stage and sit in a seat. I assumed as much my friend was familiar with promotional picture like myself, and we both knew who that was because we both started bouncing in our seats and looked at one another. Mind you, I'm not the kind of fangirl that reacts this sort of way. But this trip happened so last mintue - I didn't expect to take a trip to New York for a few years, quite honestly. Anyway, the lights came on and me and my friend reacted the same but a bit more calm so as to not distract anyone, including ourselves, from the show.

    When meeting Alice, I told her about it being my first day/night in New York and that this show was a great "first" and that I couldn't imagine a better finish to the day than meeting her. Which I followed up by telling her how amazing I think she is, which is when she looked up to really take in everything I was saying as I was being very calm and genuine. She thanked me with kind eyes and a big, bright smile.

    What a night!

  16. My favorite broadway memory is when I saw Bernadette in Gypsy. An entire trip with my mom, aunts, cousin, and nana was planned around my getting to see that show. They all drove up from MA and my mom and I flew in from CA. It was a weekend filled with magical theatre but nothing could beat finally seeing Bernadette perform. It forever cemented her status as my idol.

  17. My first trip to NYC I was determined to see Bernadette Peters in Annie Get Your Gun. I didn't care what else we saw or did, that was my only requirement. And it was so amazing that I went back to see it again the following year.

  18. I saw Gypsy with Patti LuPone a few years ago. She sang "Everything's Coming Up Roses" and the house exploded - she got a 5 minute standing ovation right in the middle of the show. Amazing. Brought tears to my eyes :)

  19. My favorite broadway memory was actually my very first trip to NYC. It was with my best friend of 35 yrs (we are now 50) to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We decided to take a chances on shows and went to the TKS booth. We picked Annie Get Your Gun and were rewarded with 4th row seats--we were so excited to see Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat and the bonus of 4th row seats was just icing on the cake. It spoiled us for the other trips and shows we've seen since, no more 4th row seats, but wonderful performancesall the same from Phantom to Shrek. I've been back 3 other times and have seen a total of 7 shows. We are fortunate to have Broadway Across American come to our home town and have seen 3 shows this season, but to this day, seing AGYG remains my favorite.

  20. That's easy. My favorite Broadway memory was last Sunday at Alice Ripley's last performance in Next to Normal. It was the most incredible experience I've ever had in the theater. The energy of the audience combined with the cast giving the most breathtaking performance ever was just too much to handle. I'm still recovering.

  21. Saw Deuce and met Angela Lansbury. Lovely, sweet woman.

  22. My favorite Broadway memory would definitely be the time I saw the revival of Company starring Raul Esparza. It was my first Sondheim show, and I managed to get a student rush ticket in the center of the front row. Being mere inches from the leading man as he sang "Being Alive" was one of the most magical moments of my life and will forever be etched in my memory.
