I'd never been to a Broadway show. Although really expensive, you are seeing great performers and great stage craft, it is worth every penny.
Traveling plays are presented in theaters that are not designed for the special effects intended for the production value of the play. I am glad I waited for NYC to get the full effect of the intended production. The costumes were beyond the word creative.
