my sister and niece met up with us after the american girl store. we went to rockefeller center and then over to times square as we waited for our play to start. we had fun with all the m&ms at the huge and overpriced (that bag was over $7) m&m store.
then it was off to the matinee performance of "hairspray." we bought discount tickets the day of and were lucky enough to get eight great seats. the girls were on one row and we were behind them. hairspray is packed with lots of show-stopping numbers; it was fun to see a play in which i wasn't familar with the story line. one scene was so uproarious, that even the two actors on the stage started to crack slightly.
