Plays

Playhouse stageThe tradition of seeing a broadway play early in the year with some friends started in 1984. I would put Jersey Boys at the top of the list but most all of the 20+ plays have been good. There is something about Broadway that keeps on delivering after a very long time. Wish I could fast forward and have a glimpse of what my grandchildren’s children will see on Broadway in the future.
