Happy New Year!
I just watched about a million revelers ring in the new year in Times Square, from the comfort of my couch. This was the hundredth anniversary of the ball drop. For 2008, a new, energy efficient model was used.
I spent a lot of time in Times Square during 2007. I stayed there during each of my three unbelievably wonderful trips to New York City. It's pretty crowded on a normal day, the sidewalks so jam-packed you can barely move. So I can't even imagine what it's like to be in the vicnity on New Year's Eve. And I don't think I ever want to find out!
Ironically, during the countdown, out of a corner of my eye, I caught a glimpse of the giant "Wicked" poster! I hope it's a sign that 2008 will be another great year of theatergoing - on Broadway and elsewhere.
Here's wishing all of my readers a happy, safe and healthy new year!
