After about 45 minutes of waiting, we finally got to the front of the line and in a position that we were guaranteed top deck seats. And about this time I was starting to wonder if the discount was worth it. Especially as I saw the competitor’s buses passing by with half the top deck seats empty. I mean, think about it, why do you take a HOHO bus? It’s right in the title, you hop on and you hop off at the various stops around the route, then you hop back on again. And it is that part that is starting to cause me a bit of grief.
I’m pleased to say that it was never a problem. We got off in SoHo, we got off again at the 9/11, and neither time was there any real wait getting back on. All in all, a pretty darn good experience. We really enjoyed SoHo, and the 9/11 memorial was a wonderful tribute to those that lost their lives. We didn’t book museum tickets in advance, so the long line prevented us from getting in. No problem. Next time!
In Vanessa Williams fashion, we saved the best for last! Tonight was the award winning musical ‘Come From Away’. Did I like it? Well, let’s just say this...after tonight my favourite musical is no longer the Book of Mormon!!
It is just amazing to see what can be done with 12 performers, 7 band members, 14 chairs and 2 tables. That’s it, that’s all. No intricate props. No complex set design. Just pure and simple entertainment that takes you through the full range of emotions. I laughed, I cried. It was touching. But most of all, it made me proud I was a Canadian, and WISH I was a Newfoundlander!! Based on the enthusiastic reaction by the audience, I think it’s safe to say that the cast and crew of that show are going to be gainfully employed for quite awhile.
Early start tomorrow as we make our way to the airport and home. Another great weekend getaway!
