I finally got to see Les Miserables preformed live, at the Denver Performing Arts Center on Friday night. As a kid I was slightly obsessed with musicals, and when I got to high school I was very fortunate to be involved in an excellent drama and choir department, which put on fantastic musicals every year. I also have seen many wonderful shows as a result of my love for, and my involvement in, theatre. But, despite all my exposure to fantastic theater, I never got an opportunity to see one of my favorite musicals preformed, until Friday. As the curtains lifted and the first notes were sung, I got goosebumps that stuck with me most of the show. I felt thrilled by watching live theatre again (sad to say I don’t get to go as often as I’d like any more) and to be watching a show I know so well musically and have been singing along with for so long (even if it’s mostly in the shower now) was amazing. It was a very special night indeed, and I’ve been humming Les Mis tunes ever since.
