It's a helluva town!

Know what hasn't quite sunk in yet? The fact that Jacob and I are going to New York City with the theatre department. In, like, TEN DAYS. Wanna know what we're doing?

Sunday, April 10th
- Red-eye flight from Salt Lake, arriving at JFK at some ridiculous hour like 5 am

Monday, April 11th
- Take a nap (Which Roger says is against the rules, but if I don't, I'll regret it for the rest of the week. Besides, I can take a 4-hour nap when we get there, and STILL be up at 11 am, and have the rest of the day to play.)
- See Mary Poppins

Tuesday, April 12th
- Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
- See Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark as a group. (Hopefully. If it's open. If not, we're going to see Arcadia as a group.)

Wednesday, April 13th
- Visit the Museum of Natural History
- See the matinee of War Horse as a group. (EDIT: If you haven't yet watched that video up there of the puppetry used, watch it. Right now.)
- EDIT: Attend a talk-back session with the creators of War Horse!
- See Anything Goes (with Sutton Foster and Joel Grey!)

Thursday, April 14th
- Visit the MOMA
- See Billy Elliott

Friday, April 15th
- Visit Central Park (the Imagine Circle) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art
- Do readings/"singings" of a professor's original work at the Dramatist's Guild (where I will be reprising my role as Faith Martin from Pioneer Song)
- Listen to this guy play at Birdland

Saturday, April 16th
- EDIT: Go out to breakfast with my sister Isha
- Liz sees a matinee of The Importance of Being Earnest while Jacob goes on a man-date with our friend Jerry to see The Phantom of the Opera
- See How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (with Daniel Radcliffe!)
- Go to the top of the Empire State Building and look over everywhere we've been

Sunday, April 17th
- Visit Ground Zero
- Fly home, happily exhausted

Also, somewhere in there is shopping at awesome places, eating at wonderful restaurants, and seeing friends like Jeff and Val and James and maybe even my sister. =)

Sounds like fun! David and I ran into Roger at Staton Is. two years ago while they were there. Have you seen Shrek? I highly recommend it out of all of the broadways I've seen! I love Sutton Foster! Have fun!

This sounds like a great trip! I have never been to NYC, but after reading some of your blog posts, and checking out some of your links, I really want to go! You've found a lot of interesting things to do that many people don't think of. Thanks for a great post!
