Broadway Tix

November 25th, 2006 at 03:24 pm

Since I wrote yesterday about the influence this site has had on me, I feel I must divulge my other purchase this week - two tickets to A Chorus Line for my parents. My sister will be contributing part of the money, but I currently have a $239.50 charge sitting on my debit card. Why would I spend this much? Well, my mother was watching this show in July of 1977 when NYC had a citywide blackout. They went home, I was born 9 months later Smile, and she never got to see the rest of the show before it closed in the early 90's. The first thing I thought of when I heard it was opening was that I'd love to get tickets for her and my stepfather to see it. He agreed, in fact said she's mentioned it twice!, and Amanda (little sis) agreed to chip in. So, we got them good seats, and hence, I now have said charge. I feel however, that it is worth it. I usually don't spend more than $40 on each, and given how much they are willingly spending on my wedding next year, it's only fair. Lately, I've been feeling the non-material value is more important than the material, and this to me has a high 'non-material' value. It's not 'stuff' but something they are going to enjoy and remember. That, to me is the point of giving.

    They will always remember the gift. Sometimes you just have to do something special. Sounds like a thoughtful and wonderful gift. My DD and I splurged to give her boyfriend (who is a family friend and we love to death) the gift of tickets to Cirque du Soleil (sp?) in the spring.(birthday gift for them both) We got really good tickets there, too. He's always wanted to go and the tickets will be worth seeing his excitement.

    I think it is a wonderful gift to give to your parents and as long as you can afford it, its a worthwhile thing to do for them.

    That is very cool. I splurged for DH's 40th birthday this year and took him to a Nascar race. It was worth every penny.

    sounds like a gift given in the truest spirit: something you know she'll love and cherish! there's no price on that.
