Another opening, another show. Any chance we get. Every spring break for several years now, my wife Sherry and I have flown to New York to rediscover our passion as lifelong students of acting and theater. Over the years, we’ve also taken in tourist sites but our main focus has been attending as many professional productions as possible. This year we made it to eight new Broadway shows in and around Times Square and two in smaller theaters — termed Off-Broadway — with seating capacities between 100 and 499. Last month, all of the Broadway productions we saw received multiple nominations (50 in all) for Tony Awards, the most prestigious prizes handed out to theatrical endeavors on the Great White Way. This year’s ceremony will take place June 9 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan and will be televised on CBS. Late last spring on this page, I gave you a peek at what we saw on that trip. I thought you might like to take another little tour this year.
