The year Brittney graduated from high school, we had her come up with one last thing she would like to do with the family before going away to college. She chose to go to an amusement park with the largest, fasted, and most number of roller coasters. So off we went to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.
Aubrey's request was a little more mellow (thank goodness). She wanted to watch a Broadway play, but more specifically, she wanted to see "Wicked". Unfortunately, we didn't have the time nor means to drive/fly to Broadway in New York City. However, Brad did find a traveling Broadway show that would be performing in Columbus, Ohio, which was only about a three hour drive.
After shopping at an outlet mall, driving around downtown Columbus, and eating at an Italian restaurant, it was finally time to make our way to the apparently historic Ohio Theater.
I don't know the history behind the theater, but I do know that the interior was absolutely beautiful, even the bathrooms (above) were intricately decorated and ornate.
I felt like we might as well have been sitting in a typical Broadway theater in NYC.
It was also fun going with Aubrey's friend McKenzie. She came in place of Breck, who was attending Band Major Camp.
I think the girls enjoyed the ambiance as much as I did:
here I took a picture from the front lobby looking up,
and another picture of the ceiling and second floor mezzanine.
Even the orchestra pit was pretty epic with all the live music blasting from beneath the stage, which just suddenly dropped off.
We had great seats, and everyone had a wonderful time. I just can't wait to see what Breck comes up with the year he graduates from high school!
