Big news of the week

There are many great things about living in San Francisco, and one of them is that the big Broadway shows often launch their touring productions here. I haven't often been able to take advantage of this fact, because said big show launches almost always sell out quickly, mostly to season ticket holders. Usually, I end up catching a show on its second or third time through (that's how I saw Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and Avenue Q), and usually I'm fine with that.

I bet some of you can guess where this is going.

So the local Broadway series recently put season tickets for the 2016-17 season on sale, for six shows, two of which were announced. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime was one. And the other? Is Hamilton.

I have never even thought about buying season tickets for this series before, but I immediately started considering whether it was worth shelling out for it this time. Soon, I discovered that a number of my friends were having similar thoughts, and a couple of days ago, we went for it. So I am now the proud holder of a season pass for the upcoming season, and I will be seeing Hamilton in the Spring of 2017!

I like going to the theater, so there's a good chance that I'll be happy to see whatever the other shows are. (Dare I hope for Fun Home to go on tour next year, too? Now that would be an embarrassment of riches.) And although I don't have strong feelings about Curious Incident -- I have yet to read the book -- it reviews well, so I'm sure I'll go see it. But it's all worth it, just for Hamilton. Sure, it's over a year away. But I'm still really excited. Yay Hamilton!
