I always forget how energizing live theater is. Since I live in New York City, it’s easy to put off going to shows, because they’re always available to me. I fall into the habit of saying, “Oh, I’ll try to go later,” because it’s cold or I feel tired. And that’s how I end up missing shows.
Holiday Inn is playing at Roundabout Theater at Studio 54. The last show is January 15th. I heard it was good, and after I found out Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) was the lead with Corbin Bleu (of High School Musical fame), I knew I had to see it. Pinkham was phenomenal in A Gentleman’s Guide and Bleu was amazing on Dancing with the Stars. Since it was the last weekend, I bit the bullet and purchased a ticket for the second-to-last day through the box office. I even splurged, buying a better seat instead of “whatever is cheapest.”
