music of the night

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?

    Girl, I am so jealous!! Good for you, you guys deserve a nice evening out. Randy and I splurged last year and went to the Lion King so I know what you mean about the experience. It was incredible. If it comes to town again, I’m gonna do whatever it takes to go. Maybe I can sell balloon animals on the street corner. 🙂

    hey, selling balloon animals would be way easier and less painless than giving plasma, which is what i was considering to get another ticket! good idea…..

    my experience with the phantom started when i was 8 and we would listen to the record… yes i said record. my parents and i would blast the music each saturday, with the house windows open, singing along as we cleaned house. i’ve seen it in the theater 3 times now and can’t get enough. saw the movie and was a bit disappointed. even get a little irritated when people say they love it so much b/c i tell them, the theater is way better. glad you enjoyed it!
