We will meet at the Belasco Theater at 12 pm.  

Some people will be eating at the train station.  You can bring shopping bags in the theater. If the can’t fit under the seat then we can store at the theater.

Note: If you need additional financial assistance, please let me know.

I emailed the tickets this Sunday (today).  I also have printed tickets that I will give you at the theater. You can see your seating assignments below (we can always rearrange the day of the event).

Bring Snacks and Water.  Maybe bring a lunch with you.


No one is allowed to walk around NYC by themselves, including the theater.  It is mandatory to stay in groups or buddy-up.

We are to be positive and enjoy this great experience.

Be on time (that includes me too).

The show starts at 2:00 p.m.  We should arrive at the theater by 1:30 pm. 

Dinner is at Virgil’s BBQ, on the same street.  I made reservations for us all for 5 pm.  I will be paying for dinner (and non-alcoholic beverages).

Some of us are staying to walk around and some are leaving right after dinner (see below).

On the train keep valuables on you your phone in a safe pocket. Let the conductor know you are part of the Social Chase. They may be able to make sure you all are in the same train. Sarah and her mom will let them know in New Haven.
