Thirty-four hearty individuals of all ages and shapes set off for Broadway from Boulder and spent a whirlwind 5 days and 4 nights experiencing the sights and sounds of New York City. A note to those of you who have wondered about touring with a group. We had our concerns about the number of activities and shows packed into a few days, as well as the dynamics of touring with so many people. It was great! We would never have planned four shows and daily sight-seeing tours on our own, figuring it would be too much. Not so! Seeing a show a night was fabulous (Peter and the Star Catchers, Chaplin, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and Once - each stellar in their own way), and the daily tours had plenty of on-our-own time built in around them for chillin' or cruising or whatever we felt like doing. And knowing almost 3 dozen people meant that we were often running into people we knew - right in the heart of The City! The tour definitely let us stretch our wings soar through a delightfully unique NYC experience!
