Amanda is a bona fide pop culture junkie and theater geek. She is always happy to discuss the latest TV, anything animation, and Broadway musicals. (And yes she has seen Hamilton!) To justify her consistent theatergoing, Amanda runs a blog where she discusses the latest goings on in the theater world and the best places to find discount tickets. TheaterGeek.net
