Vance's play bill

Over at Tapeworthy, Vance has a terrific roundup of the plays he's seen recently in New York and London.

Of the plays we've both seen, I mostly agree with his reviews, although I liked Dividing the Estate more than he did. But that's what makes for a great conversation!

Also, check out his New York by the Numbers. He saw 21 shows, Broadway and off-Broadway, for a grand total of $482.50 through a combination of rush, lottery and ushering. The last one is something I'd definitely love to try someday.

I also used a coupon for Equus and just bought Billy Elliot really really early to get the few regular cheap seats they have (which are actually quite good in the Imperial Theatre).

But yeah. Volunteer ushering is so much easier than I thought. The hardest part is just getting an open position since most fill up quite fast (and Roundabout stuff you HAVe to book in person (though you can get someone else to do it apparently))

I'm in awe that you were able to see so many shows for under $500. I think ushering would be so much fun.
