63. A big show at the Fox. The Rockettes started on Grand, not in Gotham. Learn that and more when you tour the over-the-top Fox Theatre—from the old projection booth to the stars’ dressing rooms. Plan your tour on one of the days that Stan Kann comes to tickle the organ ivories. To finish it Fox-style, return later for a show straight off Broadway after a buffet dinner in the Griffin Room.
While we didn't take the tour or have the buffet, we did catch the production of Les Miserables. I caught this show when I had a chance to see it in NYC on a school field trip (best field trip EVER!), and I knew that I had to take Joel to see it. While I was nervous that it wouldn't live up to the memory (or the ridiculously good talent on Broadway), the show was spectacular and there was hardly a lack of talent. And the Fox itself? Ok people, I have seen live theater in New York, London, Paris, Berlin...and I have to say this was one of the most beautiful theaters I have been in. While the seats could have been tiered a little better, this theatre is breathtaking, and I will for sure return to take the tour to learn more about its' origin and history.
