Ok guys. You may know that there’s a storm hahaha.  Guess who doesn’t have classes today or tomorrow! This girl.  That gives me plenty of time to recap my weekend.  Starting first with NYC Smile.

First off, the weather held off for us and it didn’t even start raining until our bus ride home…thanks Sandy for that!

We left Sunday morning at 6 am and got there around 10.  That gave us about 5 hours to explore before we had our show and headed back.  We were supposed to leave at 8 pm, but MTA was closing at 7 so the subways and such were closed and we left at 6 instead.

We got dropped off right in front of the theater, and started the day! My friend Chelsea and her husband had never really been to NYC, so we headed to Times Square!


There’s me and Chelsea!




We walked around for a while before heading to lunch at the Heartland Brewery.  I got a taco salad and a really yummy dessert, both which I forgot to picture.  Oh well!


Then on the way to the theater for the show, we saw this:


Newsies time! If you didn’t know, I am OBSESSED with Newsies, the cast, and the music.  I saw it already in May, but the University gave me another opportunity to see it.  I was glad to see it again.  The lead who plays Jack Kelly was Jeremy Jordan the last time, but he is now recording episodes to be on SMASH, so now it it Corey Cott, who was still fantastic!



This is me and my “twin” from the honors fraternity! I had no clue I’d be seeing her and it made me SO happy Smile Love Vanessa Smile




And then, after the show, I MET SOME OF THE CAST. They were rushing out to get home before the subways closed, but we stopped them Smile


That’s Ryan Steele, who plays Specs ^.


Ryan Breslin, who plays Race ^.


Ben Fankhauser, who plays Davey (my personal fave Winking smile). ^


And of course, Corey Cott, or the new Jack Kelly!

You can watch Corey’s new intro video here:

Ask anyone on the trip: I was the annoying girl shaking and screaming and freaking out.  I was saying things that didn’t make sense like a weirdo.  I was in little girl heaven.  Star-struck for sure.

Great day! Now I get to sit and do nothing for two days…

How is the weather for you? Affected by Sandy?
