The Early Birdie Special

It was a beautiful, 90-degree summer day to wait in line on 42 St. for $10 tickets to the first preview performance of Bye Bye Birdie. That is, if you didn't have a job. I stopped by the line for the ambitious marketing stunt when the box office opened at noon. At that point, there were 400 people stretching down 43 St. where the box office for the new Henry Miller's Theatre is, through the covered passageway of the Bank of America Tower, and to the end of 42 St. at Avenue of the Americas. The line was moving sssslllloooww, but for those with the time (and skin) to burn, it was worth the wait for cheap tickets (up to two per person) to the first performance in the new Broadway theater on September 10.

  2. Hey! I know that you're following my personal blog (The DJF) and was wondering if you'd like to check out my new blog? It's a collaborate effort between a friend of mine and I, exchanging our different musical tastes and experiencing new sounds.

    It's going to be a weekly blog where we exchange 10 songs and discuss them. Maybe you'll discover some new stuff. You can check it out here - http://10-10project.blogspot.com

    I hope you enjoy it! Follow, comment, and tell your friends.
