Traffic was huge this evening. Because of the traffic, our tour bus was seriously behind schedule, and we decided it would be faster to get off at Rockefeller Center, and walk the rest of the way to Broadway. (For those of you just tuning in, we got half-price tickets to Phantom of the Opera, and didn’t want to be late.)
Even though Jenny was in desperate need of a “potty-break”, we had to stop for a few minutes to check out a unique performance. Most times the Salvation Army people stand outside a store and ring their bell, hoping for change. These guys definitely took it to the next level; and generated quite a few donations, as you can see in the video. This is our first time posting video, so hopefully it comes through OK.

Finding a restroom in the Rockefeller Center was even tougher than we had expected. Even so, we made it to the theater on time.
The Majestic Theatre (which opened in 1927) has quite a bit of history behind it. We were unable to take pictures in the theatre, but you can see images that others have taken, here on the on the web.
Jenny stayed in line while I went to grab some food for us. Later, we found out that we didn’t need to stand in line, as our tickets were already purchased. This was my first Broadway show, and Jenny’s first as well (and highly anticipated too). The show was amazing! If you’ve never been, it’s definitely worth it. It had been Jenny’s dream to see The Phantom of the Opera live.
