Tastes of Tag: 2015 Broadway Edition

Opinion

February 4, 2015

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear. Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. How do you measure, measure a year?”

We have all sang the RENT anthem in the shower a time or two. Well us Broadway people, anyway.

I grew up attending Broadway shows with my family. I will never forget my first Broadway experience. My parents took my sisters and I in a limo (1st time in a limo!) to NYC for the day. I remember walking into the beautiful theater, all the lights, the magic of the music and the stunning costumes.

Broadway is all about the experience from the time you walk in the door. The brand experience. From the ushers greeting you politely scanning your ticket and pointing you in the direction of your seat. The gift shop full of branded merchandise. The concession stands offering branded beverage cups. The beauty of the theater decor. And everyone is dressed a little nicer.

Once the curtain rises, it is all about the emotional connection to the show. Broadway evokes emotion. It is a two-hour escape from reality. You fall in love with the characters. You laugh. You cry.

One of the best moments of my life was attending the 2008 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall. I was seat filler for Daniel Radcliffe (no I didn’t yell “Wingardium Leviosa!” at him but I did think about it) and got to watch performances of the nominated Broadway shows all night. Amazing!

Not surprising, the Tag team has an appreciation for Broadway as well. Check out our firsts, favorites and latest shows attended:
