T is For Theater

I'm participating in the A to Z Challenge.  Every day this month, except Sundays, I'm working my way through the alphabet.  Today's letter is ...
For Theater

I love Broadway musicals.  I would love to live in a world where we broke into song at random moments and danced down the street rather than plodding along.  I would love to have the external cues to help me figure out the plot twists in my own life.  If real life only had music,  I would recognize the sound of the villain creeping up on me.  Now that I am retired there are fewer villains in my life, and many more reasons to dance.

Today I bought pre-sale tickets for The Book of Mormon in Portland in July.   When asked if he wanted to go with me, the spouse replied, "Why would I want to do that?"  The granddaughters are a little too young to enjoy this one, so I will leave them in the capable hands of the spouse.   My college roommate, and matron of honor at my wedding, is going with me. I better get to i-tunes and buy the Broadway cast recording so I can sing in the car all the way to Portland! 

This is going to be soooo much fun!


  1. The Book of Mormon is coming to my area this summer and I also hope to go. I will probably get the same reaction from my husband as you did. Their loss.

  2. OH, what fun! And I would any day rather take my best friend than my uninterested hubby! :-)

  3. I once went to see Les Mis, and the first singing character lived two doors down from me in college. It was very exciting and a surprise.
