In the City that Never Sleep

For this week's edition of Classy Philadelphia's Where in the World Wednesday I'm bringing it way back to 8th grade. These picture were taken our our temple's 8th grade trip to...
New York City

We did all the standard touristy things like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and Ellis Island.
They even took us to see a Broadway play.The Diary of Anne Frank. Pretty perfect considering this was a trip through our temple, right? Here's a picture of the cast painted on the side of the theater.
At least it's most of the cast. Clearly my 13-year-old photo taking abilities weren't that amazing. But do you notice anyone familiar in that picture?
Natalie Portman started as Anne Frank! This was about a year before Star Wars: Episode 1 was released. So she had been in a few movies at the time, but she wasn't really that famous. But I can officially say I saw Natalie Portman act before she got famous.

Have you ever seen an actor before they got famous? Or what Broadway plays have you seen?

  1. I saw Fiddler on the Roof when I was NY a few years ago. We went through the TKTS thing where they sell left over tickets for that nights performance. It was that or something else that wasn't appropriate for a kid in the group.
