Heartbreak Hotel @ Ogunquit Playhouse
Location: Ogunquit, ME Price: $122.00
Date(s): 09/14/2017 Time:
From the Tony-winning creator of Million Dollar Quartet, we are proud to produce the world premiere of Heartbreak Hotel. This brand new tribute to the "King of Rock ‘n’ Roll" is the prequel to Tony-winning, record-setting, smash hit Million Dollar Quartet that became the greatest selling show in Ogunquit Playhouse history. This tender story follows Elvis Presley in the early years of his bourgeoning career as he and Sam Phillips create the music that will forever change their lives. As Elvis’ career skyrockets, both lifting and shattering the lives of those he loves, a secret love story is revealed, a betrayal is discovered, and “Colonel” Tom Parker changes the course of history, all in just 18 short months. This world premiere musical features hit songs from the King himself as well as the legends who influenced his iconic music, with chart-toppers including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Tutti Frutti,” “That’s All Right Mamma,” “Shake Rattle and Roll,” and, of course, “Heartbreak Hotel.” This is where the story begins…. “take a walk down lonely street.”

Location: NYC, NY Price: $143.00
Date(s): 09/16/2017 Time:
Begin the day with lunch at the Heartland Brewery & Chophouse served family-style.

Coffee, tea and soda included.

Once in the 9/11 Museum begin with a 60-minute guided tour of the museum, examining authentic artifacts to understand what happened on 9/11, how people responded in the aftermath of the attacks, and the history and rebuilding of the World Trade Center.

There is no re-entry after exiting the building. Photography is permitted for private, non-commercial use only and is permitted in all locations unless otherwise posted. Please limit the items that you bring with you. Baggage larger than 8”x17”x19 including backpacks, large umbrellas and other items deemed too large or a danger to exhibits are subject to mandatory storage in the coat room. Use of cell phones for talking is prohibited in exhibition spaces and theatre. Mobile devices, including cell phones, used to play audio tours must be connected to a headset. Restrooms are available in the Museum for ticketed guests.

After the guided tour enjoy the remaining time (on your own) seeing the rest of the museum, and if finished you can walk outside and view the 9/11 Memorial. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history. Please REMEMBER once outside there is no re-entry into the museum so it should be the last thing you view. You will then need to meet your hostess outside the museum at a designated spot around 6:00 PM to walk as a group to the bus for the ride back home. We will make a stop for dinner (on your own) on the way at a service station.
