Blue Man Group

I know I haven't blogged in a while and I'm sorry! I'd like to say hi to all my new followers first of all and thank you for following me!
Since my last post (which was during Spring Break) I haven't really done anything exciting, which is basically why I don't have any new posts... But I did go to see The Blue Man Group in New York City!

Started my day off right with a breakfast burrito and hash browns!

Where I live at school is right across the street from McDonald's, so my friends and I went there for breakfast before leaving for the show.  I eat way too much McDonald's for my own good (and this probably won't be the last time you'll see me mentioning it here!) but I just love their breakfast menu so much!


My school is about two hours up from the city, in "lovely" Poughkeepsie. What's one of the biggest perks is that they have Broadway trips about once a month, where they provide a ticket for the show and a bus taking you there and back for only $25! As you can see, those tickets would've cost me $76 if I had bought them on my own, and the train costs an extra $40 round trip! 

I had bad tickets for this show, but that's not always the case. I saw some of my classmates got seats in the splash zone (where you have to get ponchos because you can get splashed with paint) for this show! And when I went to see Wicked, my ticket cost almost $200! So you just have to be lucky...

I wanted to go to Momofuku Milk Bar while I was in the city and try their "Crack Pie" but I didn't know we were going to get dropped off in NoHo!  Oops...

Now before any real New Yorkers get on my case, I do know how to use the subway system! I just didn't want to pay and have to rush back to the theater... So instead, I went to Trader Joe's and got some snacks... Close enough I guess. 

The theater was so tiny! The line for the bathroom took me almost half an hour... 

Despite my unfortunate lack of planning, I still had a really good time at the show. It was a lot funnier than I thought it would be! I'd definitely see it again, especially because a lot of their show relies on impromptu acting and audience participation, so you're never going to have exactly the same show twice. I had a lot of fun and I hope to catch another Broadway show before the year is over.

Have any of you ever been to a Broadway show before?
