Times Square and Broadway

Last night I went into NYC with my parents.
Now that my brother is off at college, I have my parents to myself (thus all the attention on moi!!) lol Hahah

So last night my mom and I met my dad at Becco in the theater district of Manhattan for some delicious pasta, wine and cannolis. 
After our delicious dinner, my mom and I made our way to the Palace Theater to see An American in Paris. On our way there we had to walk through Times Square. 
I have never been a big fan of Times Square I think it is kind of overrated, sorry, but I have been going to the city my whole life. It is also extremely crowded. There is all this construction going on. They are making all of Times Square a pedestrian mall permanently and they are taking out the roads. So there won't be any taxis or whatever going through Times Square. So it is normally really busy and crowded but because there is construction it is even more crowded. And honestly Times Square is kinda gross. There are all these people dressed up as characters that try to pick pocket you if you take a photo with them and the costumes are also just filthy. There are also half naked men and topless women with body paint on their breasts. I'm sorry, if you like that, but I personally think it is gross and unsettling. And also Times Square is a big terrorist target. Sorry, but it's true!
But anyway, on our walk to the theater, which was a very long walk because the address on the ticket said Broadway except it wasn't on Broadway, I got pooped on by a pigeon. 
Pooped on.
Because, I'm me and very dramatic, I screamed in the middle of Times Square.
Luckily it didn't get on my Hermès bracelet or my dress or my bag or my hair. But still it was disgusting. Luckily, my mom (a former Girl Scout) comes very prepared and had some hand wipes, so we were able to clean my arm. But I felt like I was going to throw up after that!
Yeah, I know it's supposed to be good luck but it sure as hell doesn't feel like it!! 

My mom helped clean my arm and then we finally found the theater. 
We had rear mezzanine seats but they were perfect. We were able to see the whole show perfectly! And let me tell you, this is my new favorite show. OMG! It was amazing!!! It is more of a ballet than a musical but omg it was one of the best shows I've seen. The music is amazing, the dancing is phenomenal and the love story is envious!! It is right up there with Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera! If you haven't seen it, you must now before it closes! 
If you didn't know, I was involved in the theater department in my town since I was in 4th grade. So theater has always been a passion of mine. The last show I did, was The Man Who Came to Dinner. I hate memorizing lines but I just love performing. I was so envious of the performers last night, because I loved being in their shoes! And I am kinda burnt out from performing because my last director kind of killed the fun in it for me. But after seeing this show, I think I might have to continue to perform in college! I don't know!! I also took 7 years of dance, 5 being ballet and after watching that show last night, I think I might want to start it up again. I forgot how much fun it is and how beautiful ballet looks! But we will see what the future holds!!
