MSC - day 8 & 9 - Anything Goes

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

My college sponsored a Broadway show trip, so my DH, sister, DS and I saw "Anything Goes" at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre at 43rd St. on Broadway.

The first thing on our agenda was to beat it up to 51st and Broadway to Ellen's Stardust Diner to eat lunch. Fortunately my DD had a school trip the week before, and told us about this restaurant. When she was describing it, I remembered hearing about this, and was anxious to eat here. We weren't sorry we did.

Ellen's Stardust Diner is the "Home of the World Famous Singing Wait Staff". All the waiters/waitresses are Broadway hopefuls, and take turns singing. It is constant entertainment, and a lot of fun.

Our waiter sang "New York, New York". And we were told that two employees were hired on Broadway last week, one in "Once".

Walking around was fun. Broadway (the street) was closed to traffic, and it was like a huge flea market. My DS and I bought a few things. My Mother's Day present was a red leather purse for $25. Then down to MidTown Comics at 40th for my son. We only had 20 minutes left for him to look around the huge store.

The show started at 2PM. Our tickets were in the Mezzanine in the second row. It was extra special because my sister always liked Joel Grey, and he was fantastic as Moonface Martin. Just when you thought the show was as funny as it could get, it got funnier. The wheelchair dance was hilarious.

The best thing about the day was that my DH was healthy enough to go. When I put down the deposit on the tickets, we really weren't sure. He is a walking miracle.

    I had a trip planned to NYC but then 9-11 happened. We are now starting our quest to see all the MLB baseball fields so I plan to get there yet when we see Yankee Stadium!

    Sounds like a great place to eat. I'll have to get hints when we go to NY!

    I have never been to anything like this other than when I was in local plays and attended them in later years. It looked awesome.

    I would love a red purse!!
