When you’re a kid we all have a dream. Whether it’s a certain place you want to go or even who you want to be. Well, who you want to be as an adult can change through the years? I know mine sure did. The city that I wanted to see the most but never did though, and that city was New York. Now people who don’t live there have a pre thought of it and the people who live there, well some is true, and others not so much. Yes, the city moves fast but honestly which one doesn’t. It’s beautiful but kind of gross at the same time. I mean there’s trash everywhere and yes, I saw a few rats, but other than that it has beauty especially at night. You definitely don’t drive because everything is in walking distance and if not there’s the subway, which isn’t as scary as everyone says. It’s also not bad to navigate once you get the hang of it. Stepping on a subway for the first time is an experience and remember if there’s no room to sit, you better grab a pole and hold on. My final thought on this city that never sleeps from a country girl, is breath-taking and magnificent, full of wonder. I highly suggest if you can to visit it at least once. I’m sure glad I did.
And then there's Broadway! As a kid I always wanted to see a Broadway play as well, so coming to NY I took that chance and boy am I glad I did. The play I saw I’m sure many have heard of if not, sorry but where have you been. That musical/play is “Hamilton”. Yes, that “Hamilton” the one that always sells out and those critics rave about. Well, I saw it and I was thinking the whole time this better be good as everyone says, and it was. The story it tells of one of our founding fathers, that honestly doesn’t get much credit is magnificently done. It brings out all the emotions, from laughing, to happy and then to sad and even at times had me going wow! The cast is marvelous and the music from it will definitely stick in your head for awhile. Now, if you want to see what it’s all about before actually seeing it you can listen to the soundtrack, but honestly, I wouldn’t because huge spoilers. I’m so glad this is the first play I saw and that I was able to get tickets. So again, my final thought on Hamilton is five stars, and definitely something you’ll always remember. Even if you don’t like Broadway, musicals or plays I would still highly recommend that you give Hamilton a chance, because trust me you won’t regret it. My eyes never left the stage or the actors on it.
