OK confession time! I am a theater junkie. Do you have theater confessions??? Come on it’s ok to tell me you ADORE theater!!
Theater has always been close to my heart. Even before I was a theater nerd in school I watched every musical I could get my hands on and if you ask my mother I was practicing my acting ability from a young age! (see: dramatic, over the top, drama queen, teller of tales)
Not to say I was a liar, because that I was not but I always had some magnificent and crazy story to liven up the ordinary. I grew up on a farm so the cows getting out of the fence was a pretty normal occurrence. I never just helped though, most days I was a dragon, breathing fire to herd the villagers where I wanted them so I could eat them for dinner. You know just your usual morning before school.
In school I auditioned here and there but I fell in love with doing tech! Stage manager was my FAVORITE! WHAT?!?!?! I get to help pick sets, boss people around and have 1 of the only 2 keys to the supply closet!!!
Thanksgiving of 2014 I went to New York with my Mom and Sister for a girls trip. We had a ton of fun checking out the Statue of Liberty, FAO Schwarz, shopping at Tiffany’s, Central Park, the Macy’s Day Parade etc but a serious highlight of the trip was going to the theater. We went to see Mamma Mia on Broadway! It was so much fun! It was my first time to New York and Broadway but definitely not my last!
We were headed to our show!
Can you tell it was COLD!?!?!?!
These days I have season tickets to the Bass Performance Hall and don’t miss a show! Just recently I saw Matilda and let me say it was PERFECTION! We started with some of the cheapest seats available because, well, budget. But every season we have upgraded just a little. We (my best friend is my theater buddy) just upgraded for this next season to box seats.
My all time favorite musical though is still Gypsy. I have always adored Bette Midler and I have seen her as Mama Rose approximately 3.8 majillion times. I know every single word to the entire production! I am really hoping to see it live one day!!!
Do you have a favorite musical???
