This past Wednesday night I made a quick trip to Memphis to see The Sound of Music at The Orpheum! First of all I am still obsessed with the Orpheum, it is so so so gorgeous!!! I am also still obsessed with these jeans I got in my last Stitch Fix!!
Just like everything in my life lately I was almost late because there was some sort of traffic accident on I-40 on my way to Memphis. The show started at 7:30 and I got there at 7:15. Ughhhhh. Thank goodness I had reserved valet parking beforehand because I would never have had time to park and then get in the theater. And before you go all “valet???” I was in Memphis alone and I don’t play with my safety alone at night, especially in downtown Memphis.
So I finally got there and was able to snap a few quick pics before the show…because hello! I’m a blogger!! HA!!!
But then I ran in, hit up the bathroom, grabbed a bottle of water and found my seat!! I got an amazing seat for this performance!! I bought my ticket a while ago and then had to exchange it for another night and got upgraded to a much better seat for an extra $20!! Thank you Ticketmaster!!
Here’s a view of the stage from my seat!!
Back to the point of this post…The Sound of Music. Y’all. This show was simply AMAZING!!! I teared up at the beginning, sang my way through the songs (I am soooo sorry to anyone who sat beside me!!!), and cried at the end!! This show did NOT disappoint. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see it and if you get the chance I hope you go see it too!!!
Thank you Orpheum Memphis for putting on a fabulous event as always!!!

There’s nothing wrong with valet parking! If they offer it, I’m all over it. I do love musicals and I would love to see The Sound of Music. Sounds like so much fun!
Good for you and the valet parking, never say sorry. Wonderful idea especially if your by yourself, can’t be to cautious. We love the Sound of Music. Such a great classic and I bet the music was wonderful. Luck you!.

Very nice night out! I would love to see The Sound of Music as it was one of the first movies I got to know the songs to.
Christy Maurer says
The Sound of Music is one of my favorites! I would love to see it live! I agree with the valet parking. I hate parking in cities!

I haven’t been to a live musical in quite some time. I did see the Sound of Music as a movie when I was much younger and enjoyed it.
I have seen the movie The Sound of Music but never a stage production. I bet it would be very cool to see. It looks like you had a great time there.
I absolutely LOVE musicals in general and I love The Sound of Music! Looks like you had a great time :)

I absolutely love musicals! It has been way to long since I manage to get and see one!
I have always loved Sound of Music. How cool that you got to see the live musical version of it!

Sounds like it was a great time. I know that my daughter and I love live theater. And we both love the Sound of Music. I hope they bring it out here to LA sometime.
I LOVE musicals. i used to drag my husband all over the city to see them, now I do it to my kids! The Sound of Music is one of my all time favs too!
Jaime Nicole says
You look so cute! I just saw the Sound of Music here in Buffalo a few weeks ago and it was great. The kids were so cute!

I would love the opportunity to go listen to a musical. I’ve always wanted to see Wicked on Broadway.

I have always loved musicals. It started when I was watching Shirley Temple on tv as a kid. Go figure. Anyway I can’t wait to see this one. Thanks for sharing a great review and I love your shirt by the way.
I loved the movie but have not seen it in a musical stage play. It must have been so exciting to watch a live production. I wish I lived closer so I could have seen it too. Well, I just hope now that there would be performances in other areas too.

I would love to see The Sound of Music. That theater is really gorgeous, what a great experience. I love Stich Fix too, it’s amazing to me that they always send me items right in line with my taste and what looks good on me.

I love live music very entertaining I appreciate live music more that the replay one. I will be in Memphis downtown this coming October and I will add it on my list on what to do while we were there. Aside from the Elvis Presley tour we are all excited on this trip.
