I love both those words so much.
Although I didn't like the Phantom of the Opera very much. Is that a bad thing to say? The truth is, I'm not all that good at big plays. I want to see them all. I love the stories, the music, the costumes, the whole feel of it. I just wish they could wrap it up in one act. I get fidgety. I can't sit still. It seems to take to long.
I also like the more current believable story lines, like The Lion King. I actually am not sure if Lion's can talk in real life but the costumes alone made the whole thing worth it. And that Timon and Pumba! I could have watched them all day long. I saw that twice. I still can't believe that Scar would do that to his brother.
My own brother and I have a long history of seeing shows together. When I was eleven years old my brother took me to see the movie Fame in an old movie theater in Narberth park. I will never forget that. I loved it. There were parts that seemed so grown up to me and I felt lucky that he took me. In more recent years we have seen additional shows like The Boy From Oz. With Hugh Jackman. My brother got us front and center seats. That was one show I wanted to last all night long. These are things that will last forever for me. Memories of time spent with someone I dearly love, just like a dream.
