Date Night



















Last night I treated the "man- friend" to his favorite place in the world: A MUSICAL!

The Scarlet Pimpernel to be exact ;)

Alright, so it's not the first activity he'd choose to be doing on a Friday night, BUT I think he enjoyed the show. But I'm not so sure what he got a kick out of more- the actual play OR seeing me out of his peripheral, totally sucked into the romance, lip-syncing every line to every song. I knew I was busted when he leaned over and whispered into my ear,

"I get it now... I totally get why you..."

He needn't say another word. I knew exactly what he was thinking and we both busted up laughing (a quiet laugh of course).

"It's all coming full circle now" he said with a cheesy grin on his face.

Good. Now he can FINALLY see where and why I conjure up all my hopeless romantic stuff. What can I say!? I am a drama nerd at heart and I LUFF me a little sappy romance :)

Do you like Musical Theatre? Will your spouse/significant other go with you? NAME YOUR TOP 5 BROADWAY SHOWS! GO! 

I'll start by sharing mine- in no particular order...  (gosh, this is HARD... I don't know if I can actually label these as my top... I have too many I love :)

1) The Full Monty
2) Aida
3) Les Miserable
4) Anything Goes
5) Starlight Express

P.S. If you haven't seen the 1982 non-musical version of The Scarlet Pimpernel, DO! It is sooooooo good :)



















P.S.S. THANKS NEWMAN'S for inviting us along! Twas a blast!
