I'm on a Les Mis kick now and generally I do like musicals but I love selected ones only.
I'm currently working in Singapore and it is also here that I saw my first musical.
Phantom of the Opera.
And I loved it.
It didn't matter that I was sitting on the highest tier on the last row. At least I was smacked dab in the center so the sound was perfect.
I went back to watch it a second time but was a tad disappointed cos it felt so rushed..but maybe I was just biased to my first ever viewing.
Sadly, none of my friends here are interested in musicals.
My first viewing was with friends who are mad about musicals and POTO and they came over from Malaysia just to watch it.
My second viewing I dragged a friend, but her response was...'meh..is that it'...o.0
My second musical that I watched was King and I.
Sad to say I fell asleep during Act 1..but I was exhausted..(I went for the Matinee but...yea...)
I'm praying that Sound of Music, Oliver or Les Mis will come to Singapore.
My first exposure really was Phantom of the Opera when I was 12 years old. My class had to perform a skit in front of the entire school (every class had to perform at each school assembly which was I think once every two weeks.)
Thinking back now, it was really amusing. For some reason we had 'Christine' sweeping the floor a la Cinderella...
Talk about being misguided. =D
