Music of the Night
Drive to New York- 5 hours (because we had to stop at Cracker Barrel). Tickets to Phantom of the Opera- $60 (at the TKTS booth). Changing a kid's life- lots of thought, energy, and time...but priceless.
Ryan's younger brother-in-law, Josh, has been visiting with us in DC for the past month. When we asked him what he wanted to do while he was here, he gave us only one wish-- to see Phantom of the Opera live on the Broadway stage. It doesn't take much arm-twisting to get Ryan and me on the New Jersey Turnpike headed in that direction, so off we went.
Josh claimed that "it changed his life."
