Thanks so much for your post, it brought back a flood of memories of my life in Boston. There is nothing sweeter in theatrical life than being in Boston for a tryout of a new Broadway bound show. I saw several of them when I lived on Beacon Hill in the 1970s and 1980s. Somehow when you are sitting and watching the great ones (Tandy/Cronin's Gin Game comes first to mind) you know that any kinks will be smoothed over and the show is going to fly and make history. I felt the same seing Pacific Overtures from the high balcony; I was almost vibrating with excitement during "Please/Hello".

Your child is very lucky that you care enough about live theatre to share these experiences together, you must know you are giving your child memories for their entire life. Not just for knowing theatre, you are sharing experiences that your child will remember forever. My parents did the same for me, even if I was seeing tours in a tent (imagine seeing Angela Lansbury doing Gypsy in a tent in a thunderstorm!), those are still very sweet memories long after they are gone. That is the magic of live theatre -- it forces you to participate and share and create memories.
