Years ago when I visited the UK the hottest broadway show was Mama Mia, saw it and loved it!
OK, so fast forward to 2 yrs later since I've seen Mama Mia; my boss at the time, was raving about this show he got free tickets to. He's never seen it and he kept going on and on telling me about it. I listened and finally said, 'Oh Yeah, I've seen it in London when it first came out with the original cast...' he was so embarassed because it was in front of his colleagues who laughed at him (he's got the Mr. Know-it-All I'm the only privileged one who gets to do fun stuff syndrome).
OK point of the story?! I need good show recomendations that will come to the US years later and have someone rant about it and me saying, 'oh yea...seen it1'
any input fellow trip advisor will be much appreciated :)
