One Post More!
By now, I expect you’ve read all about our Cultural Hotch Day outing to see Les Miserables, which Poof so eloquently wrote about. However, I do feel I need to defend myself. For the crying and such.
I’m sorry. But I LOVE THEATER. Actually, I’m not really sorry. Because seriously. LOVE.
If you do too, I hope you’ll comment about how awesome theater is. Tell me your favorite show, so I can have support to drag Poof to another one. Maybe Wicked, because it’s awesome and she’s never seen it, and OMFG, Idina Menzel.
Seeing Les Miz was actually Poof’s idea. She called me and mentioned it was going to be here, and was all “I think it’d be fun to go to.”
MEANWHILE, I was all, FUUUUUUUUUUUCK YEAH, JEAN VALJEAN, ONE DAY MOOOOOOORE!
Let me explain my love of Les Miz:
- Do you know who once starred as both Eponine and Fantine on Broadway? Lea Salonga.
She was the singing voice of Princess Jasmine too, and Mulan. And she’s Filipino. And was my idol from the ages of five to at least thirteen. I love her.
- Guess what my senior musical was in high school? That’s right. Les Miz.
When Poof was teasing me about saying Jean Valjean over and over? That’s how my government teacher would say it, everyday while the show was going on. Master of the House had me replaying exactly where I was on stage at each moment.
Watching the show was a series of flashbacks combined with the sadness of the show. So many tears.
- Seriously. Have you seen this show? It’s SO GOOD.
Hence my large amount of love for this show. And why it was AWESOME that Poof went with me. Because now she has to love it too.
By the way. She made up an excuse. Like allergies or something in her eye. But she totally cried too.
