These last few years it started to be a tradition for me and Ely to plan a week dedicated to theatrical musicals at the end of the winter. It all started in 2006 when, for the first time, we had the experience of a great production in London's West End: The Lion King. To tell all the truth, we have considered watching a musical live in theatre before in London and New York, but when we were in these cities the price of the tickets seem too high for a show and gave up buying them. This is probably because we were used to musicals here in Trento, where usually only little production on tour arrive and the level of the show is pretty basic. Later a good friend of mine told me about her experience in watching musicals in London and told me and Ely how fantastic those production are and explained us some musicals she watched before. So we gave it a try and it was love at the first sight!! Since 2006 we regularly plan a short trip to London and go to see one or two different shows.
This year it's all even better, because before to leave for London on Thursday, tomorrow we have tickets for "Cats" here in Trento and this time it's a very good production and we are really looking forward watching it (even if I am not a big fan of musicals in English then translated in another language just for having a wider audience!!! But this is another story!) However in London this week we are watching two fantastic show: "Sister Act" and "Wicked". We are so excited, because it has been months since we started to listen to songs of these musicals and now Ely knows all them by memory! I told her she risks to sing along while watching the show (and even though her voice isn't bad, I guess our neighbors would prefer listening only to the professionals on the stage!!!! hehehe)
Last but not least, we wanted to make it crazy in London, booking also for a concert. This year we feel pretty disco-pop...so what's better than a hyper-galactic Lady Gaga show at the O2 Arena?
It's gonna be super fun!!! :))
