Happy Friday! I’m linking up with Lauren Elizabeth on ‘High for Friday’ for today’s ‘Obsessed’ post. Each week I’ll round up my favorite finds from the week that I am obsessed with and share them with you!
I was in New York last weekend (recap to come soon!) and my friends and I saw an impressive FOUR shows in three days. We absolutely are OBSESSED with theater and this was a fantastic refresher of just everything I adore about Broadway. I’m especially obsessing over the Aladdin Original Broadway Soundtrack (“High Adventure” is hilarious and “Friend Like Me” is…just everything).
2. Pippin is coming to Chicago!
Broadway in Chicago has announced that the revival of Pippin will be making it’s way to Chicago next July/August while the show is on tour! I’m so beyond obsessed with this show and am ecstatic that audiences around the country are going to be able to experience the magic. Included in the touring cast and playing the role of Charles will be John Rubinstein, who originated the role of ‘Pippin’ in the 1972 Broadway production. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform this past weekend in New York and he was fantastic! We chatted after the show and he is SO NICE! I asked if it was surreal being back in Pippin after so long-he told me it definitely is! Especially because the current revival of ‘Pippin’ is playing right next door (at the Music Box Theater) from where the original production premiered, at the Imperial Theater. I digress…anywho, I obviously will be seeing the show when it makes it’s way to Chicago next year!
3. Books Beauty and Buys
My lovely friend Lindsey has started a blog!! Every week she’ll be dishing on the books she’s reading, the products she’s loving and, you guessed it, the goodies she’s buying! I’m already obsessed with her blog and have a list started of products/books to check out!
Have a fantastic weekend!
