I finally got the chance to see Phantom of the Opera live on stage. I've wanted to ever since my best friend Ani and his mom introduced me to it in the movie theater several years ago.
The handbell choir that I sometimes play with got a section of seats to opening night of Phantom here, and they invited me along. I even got to take the bf with me (he bought me a shiny program!) It was absolutely incredible. We had great orchestra level seats and could see everything. It was seamless, better than I had imagined it would be. I've loved Phantom of the Opera since Ani introduced me to it, so last night was about the coolest thing ever. Simply amazing! It's really only the second show I've seen on stage (Broadway-type show, not amateur productions) The other was Jesus Christ Superstar back in 9th grade during our band trip to New York. I saw it on Broadway and absolutely loved it. I still need to see Wicked and Rent, I'd love to see Hairspray, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, Tarzan, and other Broadway classics like Cats and Chorus Line. Basically I just love Broadway shows, and want to see more of them.
