i took a shower in my expensive soap,
sprayed some prada on my skin,
and put on something real sexy.
did i mention the date was at 8pm?
so one of my wolfie readers,
who has always come through for me,
sent me a ticket this week to attend a broadway show.
“after midnight” which stars toni braxton and babyface.
the play was down in tourist trap bka times square.
i left my spot on time,
only to be delayed by a sick passenger.
when i got to ts at like 745,
it was crowded like fuck since it was like 60 degrees.
walking slow and sight seeing.
ended up having to yell at this one old couple for stopping randomly in front of me.
after i power walked to the theater,
the line was absolutely disrespectful.
“around the corner” types of disrespect.
i blamed the old couple in my head as i walked to the end of the line.
when i got in,
the usher escorted me to my seat.
i was like 5 seats up from the stage.
the theater filled up fast.
kind of older crowd.
i felt like the youngest person in the room.
definitely the late 80s-early 90s r&b crowd.
but A LOT of whites.
not a hoodrat in sight.
just how i like it.
the show was great!!!!
babyface looks so good.
toni even better.
the show was a revue that revolved around jazz,
celebrating the legendary cotton club in harlem world,
that era of the 20s-40s,
and the artists who performed there.
there were different singing monologues with various set and costume changes.
the live band took you back in time,
the energy was contagious,
and every performer sang and danced their asses off.
not a beat,
or note was missed.
toni had about 4 solos,
while babyface was the host with about 7.
one thing i love is when black folks get into a production.
listen we get into it!
the audience participation and cheers gave me the chills,
especially when babyface and toni came out for the first time.
i felt so happy that i almost cried.
when it was over,
i gave some money to their broadway cares fund for aids.
giving back for all the blessings i have received.
although i loved going alone,
i wish i had a wolf that i could have done something with after.
going to a bar,
getting a drink,
and just talking.
well i did go end my budget dropping 73 dollars at h&m on work clothes after.
