    The three dimensions are Length, Height, and Width.

    So zero dimensions are a point, one dimension is a line, two is a square, three is a cube. I know you guys don’t really care but it was driving me nuts…

    And I think the first “broadway” show I saw was a local production of Oliver.

    The first and only Broadway show I saw was ‘Movin’ Out’. It was my sophomore year band trip to New York and I guess the music parents who organized the trip thought a nice Billy Joel musical would be a great addition to the trip. Apparently they didn’t bother to read the reviews or the plot of the musical.
    I loved the musical but some of my less mature classmates spent their time snickering at the simulated drug and orgy scenes. The teachers and chaperones were mortified.

    Another great episode. Jake Fogelnest is the best.

    I’ve never seen a Broadway show, never been to New York actually. Other than filmed adaptations, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a Broadway show. For some reason, my high school seemed to pick off-Broadway shows to produce — You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Godspell; The Fantasticks.

    This was a great episode. The first Broadway shows I saw were You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown and Smokey Joe’s Cafe. My family saw them both in the first week, so I’m not sure which was first.

    Well, I’ve never been to Broadway (yet) but the first professionaly produced musical i ever went to go see was the Wizard of Oz at a professionally run local ampitheatre. I was 3. And I loved it!
