This weekend just gone I made a trip down to Sydney to watch the theatre production, Les Misérables. I am now starting to accumulate a decent amount of musicals I have seen so far, and I have to admit I think the most recent is the best one yet!
Watching the movie before hand was definitely a plus, as I think I might have gotten a bit confused on the storyline otherwise. Singing the entire way through might be a bit of a turn off for some, but really isn’t that what a musical is, right? And I assure you if you have any doubts you won’t by the end of it. The entire production was completely flawless and professional. Each scene, and all the stage props, flowed into one another with ease.
Having watched the movie, when each scene approached I was baffled with how they would actually perform the events on stage. But every time they succeeded, and I was completely blown away. I love the feeling you get when you watch a live performance, there isn’t anything like it. You feel part of the experience and not just an observer, you feel inspired and uplifted by the positive energy circulating the room. You are able to escape reality and completely immerse yourself into the creative space.
Here is a list of all the musicals I have scene so far, and in some what of an order I liked best>>>
The Lion King
Phantom of The Opera
Do you have any musical suggestions I should see next?
P.S. Thanks Nan for the ticket :)
