I just got home from Beautiful The Carole King Musical and I couldn’t wait to write about it. It was a true delight! I want to write down the thoughts which are racing through my mind.

I enjoy going to the theater. In particular, I enjoy going to see Broadway shows and plays. I have been to Broadway shows in New York and in San Diego.

If you can’t go to New York to see a Broadway show….go see a Broadway show in San Diego (or your city)! Going to the theatre is a fun outing, there is something magical and special that happens from live performances and amazing musicals! I’ve seen a few shows on Broadway in New York….and a few here in San Diego, the main difference is the city, the quality in the performances is wonderful! The Broadway shows which appear outside of New York are considered Broadway Shows on Tour (see explanation of touring show here & here). The group that presents the performances locally is Broadway San Diego – A Nederlnd Presentation and they also have Broadway presentations in other major cities. So, if you’ve ever wanted to see a Broadway show, just drive downtown and catch one! The 2013 season has several good shows scheduled for this year! This week you can still catch Sister Act, it is a wonderful, a feel-good musical! You will laugh, be touched by the message in the story, be awed by the musical performances, the stage scenery, and the costumes. Sister Act, based on the hit feature film, is winner of five 2011 Tony Award nominations and music by multi-Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning composer Alan Menken. It is a family friendly, spectacle with nuns that rock! The performances are this week, July 30 – August 4 at the San Diego Civic Theatre in downtown San Diego. There is one evening performance Friday (7pm), and two on Saturday (2pm & 7:30pm) and Sunday (1pm & 6pm). Tickets start at $39.50.

Enjoy the theatre!
