Back to Before

I just stumbled upon my first-ever Broadway ticket. It's from the days when ticket-takers actually ripped the tickets instead of just scanning them. Jesus, who remembers back that far? It's from the 2 pm performance of Beauty and the Beast on December 1, 1996. Fifth row at the Palace. I remember that I hated it and was terrified by the loud noises. I remember every single show I've seen since then. The best was Ragtime or August: Osage County. The worst? Shrek. Definitely Shrek.

why is all teenager's first shows at the moment beauty and the beast? I'm waiting to hear from someone that their first was cats or kiss of a spider woman....something interesting
like lil claude will say his first was hair (assuming it was since he also knew the heights pretty well)
