When I was a kid, the big Christmas gift my parents bought for me and my younger sisters every year was tickets to see a Broadway show. I grew up an hour outside the city, went to college in the Bronx and have lived in Manhattan for the last 3.5 years. As of December, I work right in Times Square, literally across the street from the TKTS booth.

I love going to see both plays and musicals and I think I’ve only gone to 1 since moving to the city. It’s something I love doing that I just never think to do anymore. Which is just silly.
