J: What is your favorite theater production that you've seen (play or musical)? Which ones haven't you seen but want to?
Jennifer: I'm going to go classic and say The Phantom of the Opera is my favorite, even though I was pretty young when I saw it and didn't actually understand the story. I do remember thinking the chandelier crash was pretty spectacular and I still love the music. I've been wanting to see Wicked ever since it came out (despite having HATED the book) and am trying to see it sometime this fall, so we'll see if that works out. I actually haven't seen very many plays but would like to, even just locally. Mira, how about this?
Mira: Absolute favorite for me is also a classic, Les Miserables. It's the one musical that I really think I can watch over and over and over and over again. Love the story, love the music, love the characters... Funny thing with Phantom of the Opera and me -- a) I regretfully must admit that I fell asleep. To qualify that, the music is beauuuutiful, but also beautifully soothing at times. b) I was sitting towards the back in orchestra so when he was singing up in the chandeliers, I had NO idea what was happening until all of a sudden there was a chandelier crash on stage. Hahaha. Anyway, I, too, really, really want to see Wicked. But I would have to admit I'm on the Glee-Wicked bandwagon. Glee introduced me to "Defying Gravity" and since then I've become obsessed with wanting to know more about Wicked. I'm curious about Spring Awakening as well. OHHHHH, wait -- one more thing I need to add with my favorite. Cirque Du Soleil 'O'. It's kind of unbelievable that this is a theater production, but it is and it's AMAZING. And Jenn, I'm game! Except I have a very small window when I'd be able to go... :)
