There's A Book

We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.

I know, some of you are skeptical about putting yourself out there on the internet and I completely respect that. That’s the entire reason I have no desire to ever reveal the “real” names of The Turkeybird and Littlebug. In time, once they’re old enough, if they chose to do that on their own I will respect their decision. So, if ever during the time I’m doing this meme do you feel the question is just too personal for your liking, feel free to post something else, I never want anyone to feel uncomfortable with what they share and I promise it will always be “kid-friendly”. I mean, this is a primarily children’s and young adult site, you know?

So, let’s get started!

This Weeks Question: Have you ever seen a Broadway musical? Do you like theater?

I have actually been to see two different shows. One in LA and another on Broadway when I was in high school. Being that I was also a singer and flute player in high school I had my fair share of musicals I participated in. So, I’d definitely say I am a fan…though maybe not as much as I used to be in my youth. So, which two have I seen? Take a look:

The Phantom of the Opera was my first ever musical. After my 8th grade year in school my mom took my out for the afternoon to see it. We bought our tickets when we got there and got really lucky by getting seats about nine rows back from the orchestra pit right in the center. It was fantastic! Especially when I thought there was a chance the chandelier was going to come crashing down on top of us!

Miss Saigon was my Senior year of high school and the singing group I was in went to a competition back East. Part of the trip was being able to go see a show on Broadway. There were about 20 of us and half went to see Grease and the other half went to see Miss Saigon. Well, I definitely wasn’t disappointed, particularly when there was a live full size helicopter in part of the show. I can’t say the same for the other group, apparently their cast was partly ill that evening and it wasn’t as great as they were hoping.

As for shows I’d still like to see…definitely Wicked, Rent and La Boheme. One day!

Now, your turn! Link up below and tell everyone “A Bit of You!”

Next Week’s Question: If you could take a class in anything (for free) what would it be and why?

Have a question to add? I’d love some suggestions! Just leave them in the comments and I’ll see about adding them in as we go!

Also, feel free to grab either of the buttons for your own “A Bit of Me(Me)” post (or create your own), but make sure to link back to There’s A Book. (You can also resize these down to a smaller size if you’d like.)

6 Responses to A Bit of Me(Me) – Chandeliers and Helicopters…Oh MY!

  1. I would love to see a musical on Broadway, or for that matter, any Broadway production.

  2. As I said in my post, I’ve seen plays and musicals in the theater, but nothing on Broadway yet! I’m dreaming of going to NY someday! (Since I live in California, it is some distance, but not impossible).

  3. I don’t really dig theater or musicals. But I do love ballets.

    I answered this question as “any Broadway show” not necessarily a show on actual Broadway. Not sure if that’s what you meant or not, but just so I clarify my crazy answer to this question! 🙂 The one show I’ve seen on “actual” Broadway in New York is Cats. Wow, what memories there. Ha! Memories! Get it? 🙂

  5. Oh, I guess I interpreted it as Broadway shows, whether or not they were in NY. Haven’t seen any there, probably never will 🙂

  6. Despite that I don’t really like theater, I think I would go see Wicked, probably because I love the book so much. It would be ideal if someone would make a movie adaptation 🙂
