Everyone says 5th Avenue is a must-go place in New York.  Then I say "Les Miserables" is a must-see musical classic.

Today, I did both what I must do in New York.

We walked down the Fifth Avenue from 57th Street.   The first store we visited is the Apple Store. 

I even tried out the new iPhone. 

After Apple Store, our next station is FAO Schwarz which is a toy store.

Does the piano look familiar?  It did appear in an old Tom Hanks movie, "BIG".  Then I met a Hogwart professor???

Disney World was our next stop.

There I met a very wonderful person, Bernie, and he gave me a certificate of visit and two Tinker Bell pins.

I got a lot of souvenirs from today's shopping.

When it comes to Les Miserables, I have to admit that I am addicted to this show.  I first watched it 15 years ago in London.  Though I was young at that time, I already fell in love with this musical.  The scene settings were excellent and all the songs were pleased to my ears.  After I came back to HK at that time, I immediately bought its CDs from a shop.  Whenever I played the music, I would think of the show and start to cry when it came to the touching part.

Tonight, I was still deeply moved by the performance.  Alexander Gemignani starred the role of Jean Valjean.  His voice is impeccable.  His high notes are fascinating.  I cried in several parts.

Carmen,

New York is very similar to Hong Kong and I'm sure you will find it an interesting place, especially if you like musicals.

If you want to know more about the places you can go, please read my other posts.

Here are the answers for your questions. I hope my information is useful to you.

Q1: If you want to have a guaranteed seat, you had better book your tickets on the Internet. But if you aren't going there for just 2 or 3 days, you can buy the tickets on the first day you arrive. You can buy the tickets in an information centre (sorry, I forgot the name of it but it's close to Times Square, you can check it up on the tourist map as it's a very popular place for tourists). In the information centre, you can buy tickets for all musicals and just give the people there the name of the musical you want to watch and the date you want to watch. They will help you check if there're any tickets left. However, if you want discount tickets, you should try to go to the TKTs Discount Booths. Again, you can check its location on the tourist map. But you can only get tickets for that day. They don't sell "advanced" tickets. Make sure you check the time they start selling tickets as they sell half-priced tickets, usually there will be very long queue.

Q2: For some musicals, I could get tickets on the same date I wanted to watch it. But for very popular ones, I suggested you go to the information centre to check the dates that they have tickets available.

Q3: You don't have to choose the theatres. What you need is to choose the musicals! Musicals are not like movies. They won't be shown in different theatres. Each musical has their own stationed theatre!

Q4: Of course, I would recomment Les Miserables. Don't worry, I'm sure you can understand the plot as the English is not difficult at all. You may also try "Mama Mia", "Mary Poppins", "Hairspray". You can also try the musicals from Disney, like "The Little Mermaid". Last time, I watched "Beauty and the Beast", it was fantastic!

Hope you enjoy your trip! Don't forget to share with us your musical excursion!

[1] Musical

Hello,

I'm just searching for the way to see Muscial in New York and found your blog here. I will go to NY next month, hope you can share with me your experience.

- Where did you buy your tickets? Have you try to buy it through internet?
- How many days before the show did you buy the tickets?
- How did you choose from the so many threatres showing the same musical?
- Which show would you recommend? I know you will say "Les Miserables", but I'm just afraid that I can't understand the story as my English is not so good.
Oh! May be too many questions. Hope you can help!
Thanks
Carmen
