In my concert, “Give My Regards to Broadway,” I share some personal stories about how this magnificent American art form has shaped my life. My first trip to Broadway came courtesy of my high school drama teacher and her husband. In 1976, we saw 7 shows in 6 days: “The Fantasticks,” “Pippin’,” “My Fair Lady,” “A Chorus Line,” “Equus,” “The Wiz,” and “California Suite.” (And my hotel room cost $25, including tax, a day!)
What about you? Share some of your stories. What’s your favorite show and why? Have you ever been to a Broadway show in Manhattan? This picture was taken 35 years later, outside the stage door to the Imperial Theatre where I saw Ben Vereen in “Pippin’.” Share by submitting a comment below!
