One of my favorite things about London is the fact that so many musicals are constantly on.
I'm a huge lover of musicals: always have been, always will be.
But, last semester, I did not get a big change to see anything musically. I know I saw Mumford and Sons at the end of the term, but that was just one concert. And, no musicals. None. Zero.
When I lived in London for four months in 2010, I saw more than I can even think of right now. One musical that I got to see in 2010 was the sequel to "Phantom of the Opera," "Love Never Dies."
This semester, and well for the rest of my time in London, I am determined to see more musicals.
I saw two this past week alone. See, I when I get determined about something, I make sure it happens.
On Friday night, as my sickness was settling in, Jenny and I went and saw "Singin in the Rain." A fan of the classic movie already, I was excited to see how the stage show would be...especially with the rain effects! I was not disappointed. The rain scenes were amazing, and I left singing the songs in my head. A feel good family fun night out!
And, on Wednesday this week, Nicole and I went and saw "Phantom of the Opera." Now, this was my sixth time seeing the live performance of the show. Phantom is one of my favorites. It always will be. I wish the sequel was still on as I had to listen to the sequel soundtrack on my bus ride home. It was Nicole's first time seeing the stage show, and I know she was singing on her way out as well. I may still have to go back and grab those cheap tickets a few more times before I leave London....good thing I've got till June 2014.

As for the next musicals on the list, I'm hoping to make it to see "the Bodyguard" soon. I've got a few plays on the list to see before they close as well.
