On Saturday night, Michael and I went to see the “Phantom of the Opera” onstage. In a word, breathtaking. Literally. A. Ma. Zing. I’ve seen a few musicals before, but this – we were riveted. And by that I mean, I got a cramp from sitting in rapt attention for so long! When intermission came, we could barely move. The man who played the Phantom had the best tenor I’ve ever heard (he’s in the picture)…..strong, passionate and tortured. Michael said he got shivers when the Phantom sang “Music of the Night”. The sets, the singing, the special effects, the great seats, it was too much! I wondered how many women in the audience (besides me) wanted to be Christine (the female lead) that night. By far the best birthday present I’ve ever received – thanks, baby. It was a night we won’t forget. I almost cried when it was ending…I fear I am turning into a big sap. If I could have purchased a ticket for the next night, I would have. We were singing “Masquerade” around here all day yesterday. Michael usually hates going to the theater, but the “Phantom” made him a believer. If you haven’t seen it, GO next time it’s anywhere near you. I’m still trying to shake off the feeling – you know that feeling?….When you see an epic movie, go to a rock concert – and it takes you somewhere else? Yeah – I’m still trying to shake it.
Anybody else seen “Phantom”? What was your experience?
