Nobody on their deathbed has ever said "I wish I had spent more time at the office".
-- Rabbi Harold Kushner
I work at a company which acts as an online ticket marketplace for virtually every entertainment event in my (or anyone else's) area. And yet, when I question my friends, I don't attend significantly more concerts, sports, or theater than they do.
This must change.
I love music. I know no one says "I hate music," but I really, truly do love seeing live music performed. And a lot of the 2014 tours that have been announced so far entice me!
Although my early ambition to be a Broadway actress (see Stacey's post about what we wanted to be when we grew up) fizzled out somewhere between starvation and eviction, I still love to see musicals. And I live a reasonably short train ride from Broadway, not to mention the shows that tour to cities that are even closer.
I love watching sports live, especially football and baseball. And my job gives me ample opportunity to find seats close enough to shout some constructive suggestion to the players and coaches.
So, this year, my resolution is to see more live entertainment. I already got a ticket for The Book of Mormon when it tours to a city near my home (it's absolutely shameful that I haven't seen this yet!) and I've just about got some buddies talked into popping up to Foxborough for the AFC Divisional game this Saturday. Now, to search for a hotel room near Madison Square Garden to see Billy Joel...
