7...8...9...The Music Of The Night


Just a quick post before bed. Tonight I went to see Phantom Of The Opera with my brother and his girlfriend. I love musicals and plays. Fortunately for me, my brother is able to hook me up with some premium seats from time to time. Tonight was opening night for The Phantom.

Here's what I wore...
Black sleeveless top - NY & Co
Green beaded necklace - gifted by Lynette
Navy skirt - Ann Taylor Loft
same black peeps - Rack Room
Sorry for the bad lighting. The sun was already going down and my flash was off. My brother was waiting for me in the car so no time to take another shot. I tried to brighten it up, but it's still fuzzy...
So have you seen this musical? What were your thoughts? This was my first time seeing it. So many people told me how much they loved it or it's their favorite. I had high expectations and then was let down a bit. Not to say that it was bad, but I just didn't have that connection with the characters so I wasn't emotionally drawn in. This is one of those plays where you need to have that emotional connection. All in all, I still enjoyed it and I'm glad I saw it. I can now check this off my list.

Ah - I love POTO, BUT as you mentioned, we sang several of the songs in choir during high school, so I had an early connection to it long before seeing it. My husband took me to it while we were on vacation 4 or 5 years ago, and its one of my favorite dates/memories of our life together. :-)

I felt the same as you Hill when we saw it a few years ago in Vegas. Glad that we saw it, but it wasn't that great for me.

Ok, you still look skinny to me! That's fabulous, and I love this skirt. As for the Phantom, it is a classic but I agree that you really have to be into the plot to get the most out of it. I enjoy the theater so I'm glad I saw it, also.

The Phantom is not my faveorite at all, I mean it's ok but I love so many other musicals like Chicago, Rent, um the list goes on and on. You look great!
