My love affair

With Musicals.

Every time I go to a good musical I remember again how much I absolutely LOVE seeing them. There is nothing better than fun, beautiful, and touching music to make a play even better.
In the last month I have seen 2 amazing shows, both at Hale Theater. The first was "110 in the Shade" at the Orem Hale Theater with Audra McDonald.

This woman is an incredible performer. The entire show I was just watching in awe at how focused and yet effortless her performance really was. I tried the whole time to just observe and try to learn how I could be better in my performing skills. If I was half as talented as she was, I would be seriously set for life. The show was extremely well done, also featuring the father from "Saturday's Warrior". Surprisingly, he was my 2nd favorite actor after Audra. Who knew beneath all that cheese there was an actually good actor?

The 2nd Show I saw was "The Wedding Singer" at Hale Theater in Salt Lake and it was one of the most fun shows that I have ever seen.

The 2 leads were absolutely incredible. It's shows like this that make me want to be in shows all the time! One day, I'll make it happen :)
