Go to Broadway musicals will depend on finding cheap ticket for the day at the TKTS Discount Booth. But I would like to see at least three shows among (in order of importance): The Panthom Of The Opera, Rock of Ages, Mary Poppins, The Fantasticks, Billy Eliot, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying; Forza Gross; Wonderland; Blue Man Group.

Probably, I will buy a New York Pass.

To eat, I maked a few options in Google Maps and will choose among them according to convenience.

I am afraid for unable to perform all activities for lack of time. Maybe I could better distribute or eliminate some. And yet, did I forgot to put something?

So, I would like suggestions and advices.
