Have you ever had the chance to see something brand new? I mean BRAND New? Tonight Brian and I are getting that opportunity.
Before shows are brought to the Great White Way of Broadway, they have a stage debut at another venue to "work out the kinks" and find what needs tweaking. With Disney's track record of The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Aida, and the recent Mary Poppins, I decided it was a good bet that their new Aladdin would be a winner too. So when I received an email (as a Disney superfan), I only hesitated a moment before clicking the link to buy Brian the greatest anniversary gift ever.
It is showing tonight in Seattle at the 5th Avenue Theatre, and we have tickets! I have always loved the story, the music, and the characters from the animated movie, Aladdin. I can only imagine what they will do with costumes and staging for this one. They seem to keep outdoing themselves.
In the midst of an already busy summer, I know that a quiet weekend at home may sound nice, but I think a quick trip to Seattle for just the two of us will also be a treat. It is just a small way for me to thank Brian for having "shown me the world". ;-)
