I would never have imagined myself sitting at a concert style Broadway show based on the yassified version of Henry VIII’s six wives, but boy did I enjoy myself.
Last weekend my mom and I decided to go to New York City for her birthday to see a show and get dinner (a birthday tradition). We knew we wanted to see Six because we had heard such amazing reviews, but we didn’t want to spend too much money on tickets. We decided to go to the box office when it opened that day and ask what they could do for us. The cheapest ticket in the back of the theater was $120 but after some begging and pleading the box office employee offered us the obstructed view seats that were $40. We asked what exactly was obstructed and she told us the only thing you can’t see is the pianist in the band in the back corner. We went ahead and purchased them and grabbed a slice of pizza while we waited for the matinee to start. Once we went back to the theater which was relatively small for a very popular show we found our seats and were extremely happy with them; we couldn’t wait for the show to begin.
The show was 1 hour 20 minutes with no intermission and it felt so short; I didn’t want it to end.
Overall it was one of the most fun and energetic shows I’ve ever seen; the leads were fantastic and all so unique. It was so refreshing to see historical figures represented by women of all shapes, sizes and colors. The soundtrack was fantastic and we listened to it the whole way home because we couldn’t get enough. After the show we went to the New York Public Library which was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to in my life. The McGraw Rotunda had the most intricate ceiling mural that I could just get lost in. They also had a special exhibit with historical artifacts, my favorite being the handwritten first draft of the Declaration of Independence. After that we went to eat at Black Iron Burger which was very well priced and then we went home. It was an amazing day and just reminded me how much I love New York.
