I don't really know how I managed it, but I'll be in the city on the 11th and 12th of March for the specific purpose of seeing Alice Ripley in Next to Normal before it closes (possibly for good). Along with it comes the side benefit of seeing Patti LuPone and -- more importantly -- Laura Benanti in Gypsy during it's previews.
Next to Normal -- 7:00PM, March 11th, seats C105 and C106
Gypsy -- 2:00PM, March 12th, seats TBD
Alice and Laura in one trip. Here's hoping I live to tell about it.
