New Yorker Moments

I celebrated my birthday this week, which meant lots of my very favorite thing: the theater! (in case there was any confusion about why I moved to NYC in the first place).  From interactive Shakespeare’s creepy Macbeth, to Disney’s upbeat movie-turned-musical that I was obsessed with at age 10, I’m delighted to say that 31 has been kicked off right.  A theatrical high kick, that is.

What’s your favorite way to celebrate your birthday?


{macbeth came alive in the three hour performance art piece “sleep no more“…and yes, masks are required}

{discovering this wine, which will now be a staple in my house}

{newsies has long been a favorite disney movie of mine, and i was delighted to see it live, and be able to attend a talk back and meet the talented cast afterwards}

{for the first time ever, getting access to a key to visit the inside of gramercy park}

{for a girl obsessed with the roaring 20’s, the sweetest birthday gift from my future sister-in-law, which will double as a guest book for the wedding reception}

  2. My friend Natalie is writing the theatre reviews on London Unattached for me at the moment. I’m feeling inspired and I think I’ll try to see some more myself.

      Haha! The super creepy thing was how dark it was inside, everything was pretty much just lit by the dim candlelight glow!

  5. Happy belated b-day, Jess! Glad you were able to celebrate with something you enjoy so much. I love celebrating my b-day with a trip somewhere whenever possible. ;-)

  8. Theater is one of my fav things ever to do. I seriously want to go to Broadway and see a show there. Maybe for one of my big birthdays I can go. Lucky lucky you.
