The other weekend, J (the husband) and I went to see “That Championship Season” on Broadway.
We were big fans of 24 and thus Jack Bauer (or rather Keifer Sutherland). I was excited to find out he would be on Broadway! I casually mentioned the show once (wasn’t even meaning to hint or anything!!) and he ended up buying me/us tickets for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t know too much about the storyline or anything – I read it quickly online but that was about it. The cast was small (only 5 people in it!) but definitely all star! It starred (left to right in below picture): Jim Gaffigan, Chris Noth, Brian Cox, Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric.
It’s basically a reunion of 4 high school basketball players and their coach who get together to relive their “championship season.”
But this year, their wisecracks and reminiscing turn to unexpected honesty about their wives, careers and relationships, and the celebration turns treacherous. As the truths spill out, a long-buried secret rises to the surface… with the potential to destroy the best moment of their lives.

If you’re a 24 or SATC fan, I’d definitely recommend this show! If you’re lucky, they might address the audience after the show to help raise money for AIDS research!
