I write about a lot of things... mostly my life, my kids, what bugs me and, of course, THEATRE...

A Broadway Weekend at Home!
Since the snow came, I have taken the chicken's approach to the world and have stayed inside. I figured out exactly when I HAD to leave the house and it doesn't happen until today at 2:45 p.m. when I go get the boys from school and take Gibson to swimming. It has been a good week for laundry and it is a good thing that Tuesday was Cheap Tuesday at Safeway so I didn't need to go out for anything. Please don't hate me...
Anyhow, tonight I venture out for the first of my two Broadway shows! I am revisitingNext to Normal at The Citadel tonight with a bunch of friends. After seeing it two weeks ago it has haunted me. I downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes and listened a lot to it. I am looking forward to seeing it live again and sharing it with my friends.
Tomorrow night I will be seeing the Broadway Across Canada show Rock of Ages at the Jubilee Auditorium. I am expecting a fun rock based show with many recognizable tunes and a lot of big eighties hair. I didn't see the movie, so this will be totally new for me in terms of story. It looks like it will be a noisy, rock concert of a show! I also get to see the friends that we go with (we buy the season's tickets and it makes for 3-4 nights out in the season with a couple we like to hang with!).
Anyhow, tonight kicks off a weekend full of musical theatre and great company - can't beat that!
