Mary Poppins!

Today, Miss B. and I went to NYC to see Mary Poppins on Broadway! I had been planning to go to TKTS in the morning to get either tickets for Wicked or Mary Poppins but thanks to BroadwayBox, I was able to score 4th row center stage tickets for half price (no waiting on the TKTS line needed!)

If you're looking for a family friendly show I highly recommend it. The sets were fantastic, there was a very large and energetic cast, the songs were classic and they also had great special effects. Miss B. especially loved when Mary "flew" off the stage, up over the audience and up into the balcony. The children actors were terrific and the whole production was just very high quality and entertaining (not to mention that the New Amsterdam Theater is beautiful-- be sure to check out the New Amsterdam lounge down in the lower level if you visit).

Afterwards, as we were walking down 42nd Street to get back to the Mini, Hawkeye B managed to spot the Sanrio store (aka Hello Kitty Central) and thus we made a quick detour to all things Kitty. When I was a kid I used to go to the Sanrio store at the Broward Mall so this was very reminiscent (though I have to say I think the prices have certainly increased for inflation... but where else can you find so many small erasers, notepads and decorative scented pens than at a Hello Kitty shop?)

Ah, the Hello Kitty store on 42nd... I have bought my fair share of items in there. I still am clinging to a Hello Kitty bath towel that I bought while in law school!

I used to only brush my teeth with Hello Kitty brand toothpaste as a child. They sold it at FAO Schwartz back in the day.
