OK Before I tell about how I ended up seeing Les Miserables on Broadway tonight I’ll fill you in on the drama/saga that is getting that stinkin’ referral.

I won’t be seeing the foot doc until next Tuesday and I am really annoyed about it. Apparently my lovely doctors office never submitted the referral for authorization to the insurance company and tonight’s appointment with the podiatrist had to be canceled :( next available slot is next Tuesday. And so I will continue to work on my limp swagger :) I’m really only frustrated because I am afraid to do any form of cardio (bike etc) until I get official diagnosis and instruction from doc. And if this turns out to just be tendonitis then I could have already had a physical therapy session or two!

Moving on…my boss and I were getting the final edits completed on our big presentation for today and he mentioned that TKTS was selling tickets to Les Miserables at 50% off. His other half was out of town on business and he asked if I wanted to go see if we could get decent orchestra seats for the show. I lined up doodle coverage and then said yes.

My boss walked and I swagger-hobbled up the 10 blocks from our office to Times Square to the TKTS window where we got our tickets and then went to grab a bite at Ruby Foos, an Asian/Fusion style restaurant.

We even got dessert.

After eating we made our way a couple of blocks down to the theater…

I came home to some packages from Amazon. I knew right away who shipped them.

Great way to end the night. Today I’m going to lay around and keep my foot up as much as possible. I really can’t believe I’ve been limping for 6 days already. I think this is a new PR…

Question: Have you ever seen a Broadway show? Do you like them?

  1. What a truly thoughtful gift…that is so awesome.
    YES, I have seen so many shows! My first was Annie on Broadway at age 8, I was hooked!
    I love Les Miserables, Chicago, Aida, Phantom, etc. My all time favorite: Wicked!
    Sounds like a fun night. Good luck with your foot.

  2. Yes, I have been to a Broadway show: The Lion King, and it was amazing! Here in Atlanta, I have seen many shows at the Fox Theater (Chicago being my favorite with Phantom a close second), and I LOVE the theater! Since I’m late reading this post, I hope you are getting some relief!
