If you know anything about me, you know that I absolutely LOVE musicals, any kind, Broadway or not. I do the best that I can to get to as many as I can but they’re expensive so I don’t get to as many as I wish. I was a season ticket holder a few years ago when Hamilton came around, because I wanted to see Hamilton so badly, and that was AMAZING. I definitely want to try and do that again in the future. Anyway, I keep an eye on the musicals that are in town. I knew Frozen was in town and I’ve heard nothing but great things but honestly, I just don’t have the money for it, sadly. Not after Christmas and putting money into my Seattle birthday trip next month.
