Hand to God Broadway

I love theatre: it's one of the best parts of being in New York. The habit can get pricey, with most shows ranging from $75-150. After seeing a deal online for $20.15 tickets to the new Broadway play Hand to God, I couldn't pass up the chance!

Despite the accolades and reviews (New York Times Critic's Pick, Time Out New York Critic's Pick), you never really know. I read rave reviews about a musical that ended up having atomic physicists gyrating...and another musical about meat. So, you never really know what you will get.

Since the show is about a teen potentially possessed by a devil puppet, I thought it would be a dark comedy with many hilarious puppet encounters.

The actual show was AMAZING and so much more emotional than I expected. Although there are funny parts with great comedic timing, the comedy is not the focus of the show. (Hopefully you aren't seated next to weirdos who laugh at every. single. line. in. the. first. act. like I was!)

Although I have heard characterizations that Hand to God is like Drowsy Chaperone, I don't really see the connection. It's not really like Heathers dark comedic/sarcastic wit either. The mix of comedy and tense issues reminded me more of Rabbit Hole by David Lindsey-Abaire. 

I don't want to ruin the play too much, but I was really impressed by the entire cast, and the show. If you are the type to like more daring plays and you get the chance, I think you might really enjoy it.

On more pressing matters, what did I wear? What photos did I take? :) Above is me chilling in Time Square McDonald's...the 3dish art's pretty cool in here.
