Grand Horizons – Tuesday, February 25th @7pm – SOLD OUT
This one’s special… an evening at Second Stage Theater to see Bess Wohl’s new play Grand Horizons. This play looks close to home funny, honest, and I predict will be a super satisfying way to spend an evening on Broadway. BONUS: The evening will include a talkback EXCLUSIVE to our group after the show with words from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lynn Nottage. But wait, there’s more… 100% of the proceeds from your ticket will be gifted to The Lilly’s. You do not want to miss this evening, it might be the highlight of our winter theater season.
The Unsinkable Molly Brown – Sunday, March 1st @2pm – GRAB TICKETS
I saw a snippet of a preview of this show and I had the calendar on my phone out hunting for a date before the end of the song by the superstar of the show: Beth Malone. This show tells the story of Molly Brown. This spunky role model fought back on lots of issues. It sounds like a perfect family afternoon off-Broadway!
A Soldier’s Play – Tuesday, March 10th @7pm – SOLD OUT
Lots of praise for this one, especially the dashing Blair Underwood. I was going to let this one go, but after deep diving on the reviews I was a convert. I could not, would not pass up experiencing this powerful, edge of your theater seat, mystery. The director is the same one that left us all shocked, dismayed and sobbing after American Son. So maybe bring tissues.
Riverdance 25 – Wednesday, March 11th @7:30pm – GRAB TICKETS
I have always, always wanted to see Riverdance, a celebration of dazzling Irish dance and music, but somehow always seem to miss out when they come dancing through town. Well not this time. Just grabbed a medium batch of tickets to finally go see this show at Radio City Music Hall. Who’s with me!??
The Visitor – Thursday, April 2nd @7:30pm – GRAB TICKETS
Let’s go to The Public and admire the exceedingly busy and beyond gifted Tom Kitt’s next offering which stars David Hyde Pierce. I think those two facts alone kinda makes my case. Excited for this one!
Birthday Candles – Wednesday, April 15th @2pm – SOLD OUT
I love birthday celebrations. Let’s gather as a group to watch the always charming Debra Messing as Ernestine Ashworth celebrate lots and lots of birthdays on stage, from the age of 17 to 101.
Company – Thursday, April 23rd @7pm – GRAB TICKETS
I am counting the minutes to see the wildly talented Katrina Lenk and Patti Lupone on stage in Company. This musical comedy has been updated with a twist. It was a huge hit in London and now is back for it’s revival on Broadway.
Take Me Out – April 28 @7pm – GRAB TICKETS
The content – BASEBALL – caught my attention (yay one for the boys to love!). The tension point of the show kept my attention. And the cast and creative sealed the deal on selecting this powerful play as our way to wrap up April at the always welcoming Second Stage Theater. Let’s own the front mezzanine as we observe a team of baseball players navigate the fraught situation that occurs when their all-star Derek Jeterish teammate comes out as gay. The play won a Tony in 2003 and this production with its all-star cast needs to be seen and discussed and mulled over and considered. together. as a group.
The Minutes – Wednesday, May 7th @7pm – GRAB TICKETS
I love Tracy Letts – his sardonic, caustic writing and his low key, but brilliant deliveries of said insightful lines – the man is an American treasure. You know who I also love? Jessie Mueller. You know who my daughter loves? Arnie Hammer. Don’t let this one pass you by – cerebral, witty, and revealing.
SIX – Sunday, May 10th @3pm – or – Wednesday, May 20th @7pm – GRAB TICKETS
So excited am I about this show that I got two dates and one of them is on Mother’s Day. I kinda handcrafted my own special day. Gentlemen in the group – an experience gift for Mother’s day is a super memorable and special way to spend this particular day! You will love the show and so will your kids, particularly those occasionally tough to please teenagers.
Caroline, or Change – Thursday, May 14th @8pm – GRAB TICKETS
Join us for the revival of this groundbreaking musical. This production was a smash hit in London last year. Come view Sharon D Clarke reprise her Olivier winning performance.
Flying Over Sunset – Thursday, May 28th @7pm – GRAB TICKETS
Of course we are going to fly on over to Lincoln Center to see Tom Kitt’s newest original and, dare I say, trippy offering. At this show, we will be privy to a fictional(?), but entirely plausible Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds infused meeting between Aldous Huxley, Clare Boothe Luce and Cary Grant. I am so looking forward to this and in particular seeing the incredible Tony Yazbeck bring the walking definition of charming Cary Grant to life. Swoon. Hollywood glamour alive and well and on the west side.
Mrs. Doubtfire – Sunday, May 31st @3pm – GRAB TICKETS
I was going to skip this one, but the foaming at the mouth positive reviews for it’s Seattle debut made me re-consider. For our last family show of the season let’s go see Mrs. Doubtfire for a “rollicking, laugh out loud” time on Broadway. You know this endearing story. So do your kids. Let’s go see it on Broadway – worth it for the costume changes alone. :).
Plaza Suite – Wednesday, June 3rd @8pm – SOLD OUT
I love the dress circle at The Hudson Theater and will happily perch up there to see Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick bring Plaza Suite to life for all of us. Each actor plays three different roles as they wittily banter through the complicated topic of marriage. This will be our grand finale show of the season.
