I couldn’t see any facial expressions of the characters on the stage, but for $20 tickets without having to stand in line (we got them through work), I can’t complain.

It didn’t matter if I was living in Ohio; it wouldn’t have mattered if I lived in Australia. When you love something enough, you’ll do anything for it.
Including wait until November to see it. Read the rest of this entry »
