Around 5 p.m. Saturday night we decided to go see Phantom of the Opera. It was a very last minute decision seeing as how we didn't have tickets and the show started at 8 p.m. We called ahead to make sure there were tickets available, went to dinner at a new restaurant (always fun to try new places) and picked up tickets at the box office 1/2 hour before the show started.
It was fantastic! I'd seen the movie and heard the popular songs, but there's just something about seeing it in person with live people singing and the stage transforming from a rooftop to a riverboat scene, that's unbeatable. Our seats weren't great, but they weren't bad either.
I've been singing my favorite songs in my head all week, and have been listening to the soundtrack in the car. If you haven't seen it, and have the opportunity, take it! It's worth every penny!
