Since opening night nearly eight years ago, Wicked still remains the most popular musical on Broadway. This Broadway production is the most well received musical in New York City, and some fans even would go as far as to say it is the best musical of this century.

Wicked is an outstanding musical that takes you on an enchanted adventure to the past where you find out what happened before Dorothy ever went to see the Wizard of Oz. Known as the untold story of the Witches of Oz, Wicked gives you insight to when Glinda the Good Witch and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West meet for the first time as college roommates.

Not only is the storyline spellbinding, but the musical as a whole is too. Wicked features a large stage, and a magnificent set with great lighting which brings it to life. In addition the costumes are show stoppers from Glinda’s pink puffy dress to the outfits of the natives from Emerald City. The choreography, music, and lyrics top off the whole amazing experience to make Wicked the best musical of the century.

Wicked has appeared on our Top 5 events list numerous times. You don’t want to miss out on seeing this spectacular Broadway musical. Get your Wicked Tickets from Select A Ticket now!

Two weeks ago, the New York Giants lost the opportunity to set themselves up to be the winners of the NFC East. On December 19, New York was leading by 21-points in the fourth-quarter, but ended up losing 38-31 to the Philadelphia Eagles during the very last seconds of the game.

Unfortunately for the Giants, they were unable to pull it together in order to recover from that devastating loss. Instead, they lost their game in Green Bay on Sunday against the packers by a huge margin. In New York’s 45-17 loss they played extremely lousy, and allowed a season-high of 515 yards. Becacuse of this loss, the Giants were unable to secure a wild-card slot.

If the Giants want to reach the postseason, they will first have to defeat the Washington Redskins. In their last five games against the Redskins, New York has won all five. A sixth straight will not guarantee them into the playoffs, as the Giants also need the Chicago Bears to beat the Green Bay Packers if they want to make a playoff appearance this season.

The New York Giants are headed to Washington where they will face the Redskins on Sunday, January 2, 2010.

Mark Teixeira, first baseman for the New York Yankees, said he believes that teammate Andy Pettitte will be retiring before the beginning of next season. However, the Yankees are certainly hoping for his return to the team.

Although Teixeira is still hoping that the pitcher will return to the mound, Pettitte has led him to believe through texting that he is “leaning toward retirement.” Pettitte is currently at his home in Deer Park, Texas where he is making the crucial decision of whether or not he will pitch for the Yankees in 2011.

New York’s patience is running thin, especially after Cliff Lee rejected their offer. Although Lee is one of the greatest pitchers in the game, and his decline was a major disappointment for the Yankees, he did leave a great deal of “payroll flexibility.” Their current focus may be on Andy Pettitte’s potential return to the rotation, but the Yankees have room to trade for pitchers such as Derek Lowe of the Braves, Carlos Zambrano of the Cubs, or Joe Blanton of the Phillies if need be.

President of the Yankees, Randy Levine made it clear that the lefty pitcher does not have a specific deadline for a decision. He added, “I think he knows we need him. I think he knows how much we respect him.” He also mentioned, “He’s a great Yankee. He’s a very, very mature person and he’s got a great family and we’ve got to give him a chance to make his own decision.”

Spring training for the New York Yankees will commence on February 26, 2011 at the George M. Steinbrenner Field in beautiful Tampa, Florida.

The new Broadway musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark cannot seem to catch a break. First, the show experienced countless problems, which forced them to push its opening date back multiple times. Now that the show has finally opened, Spider-Man continues to be a trouble maker.

The show relies heavily on the use of props and cables in order to perform flying stunts. This has been the root of many of the problems. Previews for the show have received poor reviews due to the technical glitches, and constant delays.

Last week two performances were cancelled while producers attempted to focus on solving all of the safety concerns. The cancellations were provoked by an afternoon performance that accidentally sent a Spider-Man stunt double into a stage pit, and left him seriously injured. New safety measures were put into effect after this unfortunate incident.

Regardless of all the problems that Spider-Man is experiencing, the show must go on. During Sunday night’s blizzard the show still remained to draw a crowd despite the harsh weather. Once the musical irons out all of the technical glitches, the show is sure to be a huge hit.

Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark is scheduled to celebrate opening night at the Foxwoods Theater on January 11, 2011.

Although the New York Jets endured a disappointing 38-34 loss at Soldier Field against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, they still have managed to clinch a playoff berth. This is the first time since 2001-2002 that New York has made the playoffs two seasons in a row.

The Jets (10-5) can thank the Jacksonville Jaguars, and their loss to the Washington Redskins in overtime for earning them a chance to be in the playoffs as a Wild Card team. Coach Rex Ryan admitted that the Jets’ spot in the playoffs was not earned  “the way I wanted it, but I’ll take it.”

Since both teams are ranked high defensively, Sunday’s game was assumed to be an even game with not a lot of points on the board. However, the Jets’ defense allowed five touchdowns, which included three in just one quarter. Chicago’s QB Jay Cutler completed 13 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns.

The Jets had an overall lousy performance in their loss to the Bears, and most certainly will not get much further through the playoffs if they continue down this path. The New York Jets will host their next game at the New Meadowlands Stadium against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, January 2, 2010.

Tickets to see Jersey Boys on Broadway is no stranger to Select A Ticket’s Top 5 Events of the Week list. For over five years the Broadway show, Jersey Boys, has been playing to sold out audiences. Audiences and critics agree that Jersey Boys is a sensational one of a kind musical. In 2006, the show won several Tony awards including Best Musical.

Jersey Boys the musical features The Four Season, a 1960′s rock and roll band comprised by the members Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio. The musical follows the band’s coming of age which tells the story of their rise, success, and fall. Uncommon for a musical, it is told in a documentary style as each member of the band taking turns narrating the story.

Each individual band member as well as the band collectively, has many life struggles. These complications include gambling debts, Mafia threats, and family disasters that they are forced to deal with throughout the musical.

The band grew up together in the tough neighborhoods of New Jersey where they sang, rehearsed, and they ultimately used their innovative style to their advantage and founded the Doo Wop genre. You’ll definitely enjoy the music from this show, and you may even recognize some of the tunes such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and “December 1963 (Oh, What A Night).”

It’s that time of year. Week 16 of the regular NFL season has begun, and the New York Giants are on a mission. On Sunday the Giants will face the Green Bay Packers, as both teams fight for that Wild Card spot that will guarantee them a spot in the playoffs.

Although the Giants are looking to secure a win on Sunday to ensure their Wild Card spot, they could still win the NFC East. The 9-5 Giants are currently second in the NFC East only to the Eagles. If the Giants win their last two games and the Eagles lose their last two, then the Giants will successfully control the NFC East.

Worst case scenario: the Giants do not make the playoffs. This could happen if the Packers are victorious this week, and also beat the Bears during their last game in Chicago. If the Packers lose to Chicago, and the Giants beat the Washington Redskins, then the Giants are in luck.

Although New York is still picking up the pieces from last week’s devastating and surprising loss to the Eagles, they will need to shake those bitter memories off in order to make this win happen.

The New York Giants will play their next game in Green Bay, Wisconsin against the Packers on Sunday, December 26, 2010.

Earlier tonight when the Pittsburgh Steelers home game ended, Heinz Field was put completely in the hands of the NHL’s Facilities Operations Manager. Dan Craig said he’s been ready to begin transforming the football field into an outdoor hockey paradise since Tuesday.

Craig arrived in Pittsburgh on Monday night where he immediately began to plan the rink’s construction for the NHL Winter Classic. This is not an easy feat, as he is facing a noon December 30 deadline in order for the Capitals to face the Penguins in this year’s Classic.

Although Craig spent Sunday watching the Steelers’s game on television to study the wind patterns at Heinz Field, and planned the entire construction, actual work is not set to commence until Christmas Day. Craig said, “We’re hoping that all things considered, Mother Nature will be good to us and we will be making ice by 9 p.m. on Christmas night, and we’ll be building ice from that point on.”

This year’s Winter Classic will feature an intense face off between Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals and Sidney Crosby of the Penguins. Both players are looking to lead their respective team in the Classic, an even that Forbes magazine called “the best new sporting event” of the last ten years.

The 2011 NHL Winter Classic will be held on January 1, 2011 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

There have been rumors involving a hot new relationship for New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries. Over the weekend, Humphries was seen with rumored girlfriend Kim Kardashian in New York.

Kim was in New York City to welcome fans at Madison Square Garden for the 2100 Jingle Ball kick off starring Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, B.o.B, Paramore, and other musical artists.

On Saturday night Kim and Kris were spotted at the Provocateur lounge, where they spent the evening (and into the early morning) partying until 2AM. The couple was then seen leaving together where they headed back to Smyth Hotel. Kim has been staying there with her sister Kourtney Kardashian while filming their brand new reality show.

The day before the Jingle Ball concert, Kim was seen court-side at New Jersey’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Humphries played alongside Kim’s brother-in-law Lamar Odum, who is married to her sister Khloe Kardashian.

Humphries, the 25-year old power forward, will have to keep his head in the game despite his new boo. The New Jersey Nets will play their next game on Friday, December 17 against the Toronto Raptors.

Over the past month the New York Giants have had many injured players, which has caused them a few problems along the way. A partially torn pectoral muscle has left wide receiver Steve Smith out of four games. He returned to the game in Monday night’s 21-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings, only to leave the game facing another injury.

The injury was to cartilage in his knee, and will require surgery along with a lengthy rehabilitation period. The season ending knee injury occurred during the fourth quarter of Monday’s game. The injury could possibly even set back his return to training for the 2011-2012 season.

The bad luck surrounding the Giants’ receivers this season has been less than favorable. Now the Giants will have to face their division rivals on Sunday. Since both teams are tied in the NFC east with 9 wins and 4 losses each, this game will be a fight for the top spot.

As far as losing Smith goes, the Giants will have to work with what they have. The top receivers Eli Manning will be looking for now include Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks, although they are both struggling with injuries as well. Manningham left Monday’s game with a hip injury, and Nicks just returned but admitted to feeling sore after Monday night. Manning will also be looking to Derek Hagan, Devin Thomas, and Michael Clayton to make some amazing receptions against Philadelphia.

The New York Giants will host their next game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, December 19, 2010.
