Broadway Shows and North Korean Operas

"I think I would rather watch North Korean operas because at least I can understand them"

My first Broadway show was “Spider-Man, Turn off the dark”. Although there are lots of shows on Broadway, getting a ticket has been really difficult for me. Like most people in the world, I had been dreaming of watching Broadway shows; however, in my first day in New York City, I discovered that the Broadway shows tickets were more expensive than my monthly subway pass. It made me really sad because even though I was in New York, I could not afford to watch my favorite musicals: Mamma Mia and The Phantom of the Opera.
