The Friday 5: 5 Current Shows We'd Like To See Again

Over the years, we've been fortunate to have seen favorite Broadway shows multiple times. Sometimes, it is an embarrassing number of times. Sadly, with the ever-climbing rise in ticket prices, multiple visits are less and less feasible. After all, we want to see all the new stuff, too! Well, don't feel too sorry for us. We have seen both Moulin Rouge! and Come From Away (just last week, in fact!) twice... Anyway, this week's Friday 5 is dedicated to the shows currently playing that we'd like to see again.

The Friday 5:
5 Current Shows
We'd Like to See Again

1. Wicked 
So, I've seen this one several times already, but only twice on Broadway. It's kind of like needing to visit an old neighbor. They are always there, and you think about seeing them every once in awhile. And every once in awhile, you actually go for a visit.

2. The Book of Mormon 
Ever since we saw it the first time, days after it opened, we have been saying we need to see it again. I loved it the first time, but my enjoyment was severely hampered by the extremely uncomfortable front mezzanine seats we had. Looking forward, some day, to saying, "Hello!" to the boys again soon.

3. Dear Evan Hansen 
Yes, we just saw this over the summer. And, yes, we saw it off-Broadway. But that off-Broadway experience was so negative to me, this last visit felt like the first time. I'd love to see Andrew Barth Feldman again, but am open to seeing what any future Evans can bring to the role.

4. To Kill a Mockingbird 
Love the novel - it's one of my top 3 favorites ever. But the play blew me away. Truly one of the best plays I have ever seen. I need to see this again. It just seems like the right thing to do.

5. Hadestown 
The first time was a very profound experience for me. I was moved and thrilled. I simply need to feel that again. And soon.
