I'm applying this "Do It Now" perspective to multiple areas of my life, but one area I'm applying it to lately is taking in live performances. Luckily I live in a city that has lots of opportunities to choose from. In fact, Minneapolis has the second most theater seats per capita - we are second only to New York! Here are some of the live performances I've taken in or will be taking in over the coming months!
Last month, a couple of friends from work and I snagged a Living Social deal for tickets to Mary Poppins at a local dinner theater. I loved this movie so much as a child so it was very fun to see the live production version of it! Both of my co-workers enjoy going to live productions so I can see us doing something like this again!
Tonight, Phil and I are going to "An Evening with Neil deGrasse Tyson" at one of the theaters in downtown Minneapolis. For those of who aren't familiar with him, NDT is the host of the popular show, Cosmos, which is a show about all things science. NDT is an astrophysicist but he has a way of explaining complex things in a way that the average person can understand. I bought the tickets to this show as part of Phil's Christmas present. He loves NDT so I was really excited to surprise him with this gift. We know 2 other couples that are going to the show so we'll all have dinner together before. It should be a really fun night.
In June, I'm going to an Ingrid Michaelson concert with 3 other friends. Ingrid has been on my "bucket list" of artists I want to see live for many years so I am excited that I will finally get to see her in concert! I own all of her albums and have been a fan for years so I am really excited to see her live!
Last, but not least, in June I am also going to see the musical production of Once with my friend Courtney. We actually bought tickets for this the day they went on sale in November because I wanted to make sure we got great seats. I loved the movie Once and I have heard great things about the live production!
I don't know that I'll take in as many live performances in the second half of the year as I will during the first half of the year, but I'm excited that I've got so much to look forward to in the coming months!
Do you like to go to live performances? Is there something that your city/area of the country offers that you tend to take for granted?
