We're heading to see The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical on Thursday evening in Worcester. Check back for my review on Friday morning! I just learned about a great ticket deal -- use code KNOB (Kids Night on Broadway) to Buy 1 Adult Ticket and Get 1 Kids Ticket Free for the Thursday evening performance. Or use code POSEIDON to Buy 3 Tickets Get 1 Free for any performance, Thursday through Sunday.
Next week, I'm meeting Briana "Hoops" Green of the Harlem Globetrotters when she comes to Lowell in advance of the team's show. I can't wait! Stay tuned for my interview with her. If you have any questions you'd like answered about the Globetrotters and being a professional female athlete, please email me at email@example.com.
