If you know me at all then you know I am obsessed with musical theater! I saw my first show, West Side Story, on Broadway ten years ago and have been going to shows ever since. I go to a lot of traveling shows when they come to own but most of the time I drive over to Memphis and see them at The Orpheum Theater. It’s only a couple of hours away from me and worth every minute of the drive.
I have seen several shows at The Orpheum and some of my faves are Fiddler on the Roof, Waitress, The Little Mermaid, and Matilda. It really is a fabulous theater and if you get the chance to go you should totally do it!!
I am such the musical theater nerd that I actually wrote a blog post about my Musical Bucket List a few years ago and have since seen several of the shows on there and got the opportunity to mark another one off this week. Which show you ask?? ANASTASIA!!!
When I was a kid I was obsessed with the Anastasia movie. I watched it on repeat and had all of the songs memorized and I still know most of the words today. I have heard that the show was amazing and I am so glad I got the chance to see it in Memphis! It was just as dreamy as I thought it would be, even if it was a bit different than the movie (most shows are).
Anastasia also has so many amazing songs and most you will know from the movie if you watched it. I think about half of the audience sang along to Once Upon a December…LOL!! I know I did, NO SHAME!!
A random fact about me is that I am a bit of a collector of things. That sounds weird but let me explain. I have collected every movie ticket, show ticket, concert ticket, etc for as long as I can remember. I also collect Starbucks cups when I travel and I have the show programs from every show I have ever been to. I love looking back at the programs and remembering each show. It’s just something I do, I promise I’m not really a hoarder or anything!
Anyway, Anastasia will be at The Orpheum until June 9 so if you get the opportunity and want to go then I say do it!!
And one more thing. I am so NOT a fashion blogger but I posted about this $14 dress from Walmart that I wore to the show and I got soooo many questions about it! Unfortunately I think it’s sold out online but you can still find it in store. I have it in both black and olive green!
I hope you have a great Thursday!!!
