DIY Broadway Playbill Binder | Organizing Your Playbill Collection

🎶 “What is this feeling. So sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!”. 🎶

I vividly remember that bright summer day back in 2006 when I first truly feel in love with Broadway. It was a Wednesday and I was getting ready to see my first ever Broadway show: Wicked. Ever since I was a kid I had a special connection to The Wizard of Oz. And after watching Idina Menzel’s speculator 2004 Tony’s performance, I knew I HAD to see Wicked as soon as it opened in Chicago.

12 years later and my love for the theatre has only grown stronger. Even though Wicked was the first Broadway musical I saw, my love for Broadway started much earlier. I guess you could say I got my love of Broadway from my mom. Back when she lived in London (which is where my older sister was born) my mom saw the Original West End productions of Les Misérables and Cats. 

How lucky is she?!

A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down

November 11, 2014

I absolutely LOVE Broadway! If given the choice to see ANY concert I wanted or ANY Broadway show, I’d pick Broadway EVERY TIME! There’s something so magical about the theatre. The singing, the dancing, the elaborate sets, it’s all so amazing. When I was younger I was obsessed with watching movie musicals like The Sound of Music, Funny Girl, Hairspray, The Wizard of Oz, Annie and West Side Story.

I used to dream that one day I’d be transported into a magical land where people broke out in song and dance (thankfully that never happened because I’ve come to realize it would get annoying rather quickly!)
What I love about Broadway is that it can transport you into your favorite musicals. It’s one thing to watch Lion King on TV but it’s another thing to have the actual animals of Pride Rock walk right pass you as they sing Circle of Life!

Some of my favorite shows include:

Must See: MATILDA, THE MUSICAL (Broadway) – Medley

June 30, 2013

First of all, how did lose BEST MUSICAL & BEST ORIGINAL SCORE? ((No offense to the equally amazing Kinky Boots.)
I want to see Matilda, The Musical so bad! As a kid I loved watching Matilda. Ms. Honey and Matilda’s relationship always brought tears to my eyes. When I first found out that it was becoming a musical I thought “well, that’s dumb.” I didn’t know what the songs were going to be about and how they were going to pull off telekinesis.
But after seeing so many promos and clips, it looks amazing! You got to love adorable kids with british accents who sing and dance right? I’m just bummed that it hasn’t come to Chicago yet. I guess I’m going to have to make a trip to New York because I NEED to see this.

*2015 UPDATE: I saw Matilda (and Kinky Boots) and it was AMAZING!!*
