  1. I remember the good old days when I had a subscription to Broadway in Chicago. In fact, for the first two (three?) years of its existence, I did. I haven't been to a Broadway in Chicago play since Wicked two years ago though. I miss it! I can't believe that was TEN years ago though!


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
