It was a monumental weekend guys.. I went to my first Broadway show since living in the city! I know.. I know… it’s been a long time coming!
After hearing nothing but absolutely GREAT things about Rocky Broadway, I decided it was time to get myself to the theatre! I’m not a huge musical or Broadway kind of person, so Rocky seemed like a fitting choice.
And let me tell you… The show was phenomenal! The portrayal of the storyline, the acting, and holy moly let’s talk about the set design. It was truly amazing. If you’re in the city and even thinking about seeing the show, book tickets - you won’t regret it. Chris and I were truly blown away. They really went above and beyond on this one! It’s a really great choice for anyone who is a fan of the movies or anyone who isn’t a huge Broadway fan but wants to see a show. There’s was quite the mix of people at the show which made it pretty cool.
I don’t want to spoil too much, but I will say the end of the show is nuts! The audience really gets into it and they escort the first 5 rows or so up on onto stage in bleacher seats, while the fighting ring moves to the center of the theatre. I don’t even know how they pulled off the last few scenes so smoothly. Seriously. Just go see it ;-)
After the show, we thought it was only fitting to play a tribute to the show by heading to the best Philly cheesesteak shop in the city - in my humble opinion - Shorty’s!
This trip, we went with the mozzarella triangles and we split one of their honey chipotle cheesesteaks and then (my favorite) buffalo chicken steak. I’m telling you, their steaks are the best I’ve ever had. Definitely order their italian fries too.. Mmm, the perfect pairing for your sandwiches.
A pretty good day to celebrate Philly if you ask me!
