NY Minute: Hello Broadway

The theaters were closed for over 18 months due to the pandemic. Last September, Broadway finally re-opened its doors and welcomed back theater fans again.

I was so delighted to hear this news because my hubby and I were planning a trip to NYC on my birthday week. Adding a bit of broadway to our itinerary made me more excited to celebrate.

Where We Stayed

Nothing fancy. We stayed in Row NYC – a clean, affordable, and decent hotel located at 8th Avenue. Though the view from our room wasn’t amazing, the hotel is only a few steps away from Broadway theaters, Times Square, and Restaurant Row.

Pre-show Dinner

There are so many dining options at Restaurant Row. I read a few reviews online and opted to try Becco – an Italian restaurant known for its pasta-tasting menu. We really enjoyed the unlimited pasta specials, the pan-seared salmon, and this mouth-watering Osso Buco.

Curtains Up!

We decided to watch Jagged Little Pill – a musical inspired by Alanis Morissette’s award-winning album. If you ever visit NYC, this is one play you should check out. The musical made me cry, laugh, and jump out of my seat. I was spellbound by the powerful voices and spectacular choreography. It is truly one of the most electrifying shows I’ve ever seen.

I’m so happy that Broadway is back and I can’t wait to see more shows in the future. We only live a few hours away from the big city, so we’re thinking of taking another trip to watch Moulin Rouge or Tina.

  1. Oh I love Broadway. It’s funny because I literally only heard of the Jagged Little Pill show this morning on breakfast TV. It does look amazing and such a great trip for your birthday 🙂 I’ve never heard of Restaurant Row before, but will keep it in mind the next time I’m in New York. Thanks for sharing 🙂
