Can we talk about how great this musical/book is? So last night Harold and I (and friends) went and saw the live concert production of Les Miserables. Last night was the 25th anniversary of the play and they were hosting a special live production from London sent out to theaters across the nation. It was more of a concert of all the characters singing all the songs than the actual play. They still went through the whole story and had some minimal acting- but all-in-all it was all about the music - which is absolutely fine by me. The music is spectacular and can bring tears every time. Our Jean Valjean was fantastic- his rendition of Bring Him Home was unreal. Of course seeing the actual play live on the second row is tough to beat (did that when I was on my London study abroad) but we still thoroughly enjoyed the concert. At the end they brought out the original 1985 cast for the musical and had them sing a few songs. Yeah, the original Jean Valjean sung Bring Him Home again. double whammy. They also brought out the writers of the play as well as the producer. Hats off to them. If you haven't got the chance to see Les Miserables, than I suggest you go.. and if you are from Utah, I hear it is coming to the Capitol Theatre this May. You better believe I'll be going to that.

Also, Harry Potter 7 comes out tonight and I couldn't be more excited. You better believe I am going to the midnight showing, will be dressing up, and will be extremely tired the next day at work- but all worth it for the HP. Luckily this is only part 1 and this wont be my last day of attending opening night of something HP related. Maybe they should create a Harry Potter musical. How great would that be? Combining like two of my favorite things.. could it get any better? I submit that it could not. Call me crazy, call me weird, call me whatever, but I'll be an Harry Potter fan for life. This post explains it all.
