I find that this year, I had been so busy with my running that I haven’t been attending shows as much as I wanted to. Broadway Vancouver’s next season isn’t particularly interesting for me as I have seen the shows coming and Broadway Seattle is up in the air for now, however, this weekend, I received a fabulous gift courtesy of Studio 58 and Tourism Vancouver’s Tickets Tonight – Studio 58’s 2015/16 Season Tickets starting this October and running through April 2016!
Though not the usual musicals I attend, I am pleased, grateful, and excited for the opportunity to be able to attend these shows, and to write my thoughts and general experience on them.
