Proctors and Capital Rep have jointly announced their lineups for the next season of Broadway shows and theater productions. The Broadway series at Proctors includes a bunch of prominent shows -- including a little musical called Wicked. And the Cap Rep lineup again includes a world-premiere play.

Tickets for both series go on sale today (February 2) as part of subscription packages. Individual show tickets will be available closer to the season starting.

Some shows end up being very popular, so you might want to plan ahead a little bit for tickets if you're interested in going.

Without further ado...

September 23-October 16, 2016: Outside Mullingar
"This charmer of a play by John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Doubt, whisks you away on a delightful journey to the farmlands of Ireland. Outside Mullingar is the story of an unlikely romance between two rural, middle-aged neighbors, Anthony, an introverted farmer and Rosemary, the woman who vows to have him - at all costs!"

March 10-April 2, 2017: An Iliad
"This Obie-Award winning adaptation of Homer's epic poem explodes across the stage, spinning the familiar tale of The Trojan War through the eyes of an original and immediate narrator--acclaimed actor Timothy Deenihan, seen at theREP in Venus in Fur and The Seafarer--whose knowledge cuts across time."

Something Rotten and The Curious Incident are SO GOOD! We're lucky that the Capitol Region gets such top-rate shows. (Everyone cross your fingers for a 2018 Hamilton tour ;)

Run the NYC marathon again!

The film "Sound of Music" was actually based on the Broadway Musical.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
