They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway. They say there’s always magic in the air..

On Broadway, The Drifters

Sometimes there’s a lot to be said for spontaneity, such as a spontaneous road trip to the Big Apple with my friend, Jennifer Griffith, to see the musical, “Hamilton.”

Twice a year, the Bechtel Employee’s Club offers a day trip to NYC so this weekend, I took advantage of the opportunity, invited Jenn along for the ride, and there we were in seats at the Richard Rogers theatre seeing Hamilton – along with Rudy Guiliani in the audience (no matter what you think of him- he’s still a celebrity in his own mind.)

Come along with us for the ride…

Lunch on Broadway

Hamilton

In honor of this brilliant musical, check out the Hamilton Car Pool Karoke with James Corden and a summary of the 10 best Hamilton songs

As an American, communicator, writer, and theatre lover, my words cannot explain the inspiration from this experience.

How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore, and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence impoverished, In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?
The ten-dollar founding father without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder…
In New York you can be a new man…In New York you can be a new man … Just you wait.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Whatever your stand on immigration, this is the American dream come true where anyone can become someone and make a difference.
What is your legacy?
