Holidays and Musicals
I think they seem to go together. Tonight, my mother, her roommate, and I are going to see Jersey Boys at Seattle’s Fifth Avenue Theatre.
Before the show, we’re going to dinner somewhere nice downtown. I’m ready for a night out, even if it is with my mother. (I mean that nicely, as an alternative to having a date with some tall, handsome man.) The last couple days I’ve been pretty down because of the job, but also the holidays seem to bring me down too. This night out should help lift my spirits.
My favorite musical of all time, however, is the Sound of Music. My mother tells me I saw it seven times when it was first released. Finally a couple years ago, I got it for Christmas on DVD. I loved everything about that movie and dreamed of growing up and having tons of children, a huge house, and a handsome husband. Hmm. Well, dreams sometimes are just dreams.
I’ll let you know what I think of Jersey Boys. I love Frankie Valli’s music so it should be very entertaining.
