Calling all theatre fans. Or should I basketball fans. Now the truth is I have been going to the theatre a lot longer than I have been following basketball. In fact until 1999 I didn't follow basketball at all. That of course was the year that the New York Knicks made it to the finals. Having been a resident of New York for almost a decade I figured it was time to support the home team. From then on I was hooked. Cut to thirteen years later and the Knicks are on the verge of making the playoffs for the second consecutive year. I know. I know. I probably just jinxed them. Anyway back to the reason for today's blog. Tonight will mark the Broadway debut of the new play Magic/Bird.
The show which began previews at the Longacre Theatre on March 21 tells the story of Hall of Famers Earvin "Magic" Johnson and Larry Bird and their rivalry turned friendship beginning in the late 70's thru the 1992 Olympics. I myself saw the show a few weeks ago and loved it. Do you need to be a basketball fun to enjoy it? It certainly helps but I think overall if you go in with an open mind you will have a good time. Plus at a running time of only ninety minutes it is just as thrilling as a real basketball game and not as long. Plus you don't have to worry about some drunk fan spilling beer all over you.By the way for those of you who want to see this new play now is the best time. Not only that but at prices that can't be beat.Get your tickets to see Magic/Bird on Broadway. You will love it.
