Do You Hear The People Sing?

I did. On Wednesday. For free.

My city is awesome. We're never moving away. For our anniversary we went and saw Bourne Ultimatum and while it was totally awesome I secretly wanted to go see Les Miserables instead. I mustered up the nerve to ask the same couple to watch Abbey again so we could go see it.

There's a great outdoor theatre here with hundreds of free seats every night. Yes, they are nose bleed seats. Yes, it was 103 degrees at 7:00 that night. Yes, the man behind me insisted on humming along to all my favorite songs. But can you beat free seats to see incredible musicals? I think not. We went a few hours early to sit in line with the other free loaders. But a subway and capri sun and my sweetie by my side and NOT chasing a toddler made the time fly by.

Ah, Les Mis. I bawl like a baby every time. (Here's me--not bawling. Just being goofy.)

I love that the man sitting behind you was humming all of the songs. That would be soo annoying but very funny as well. Looks like a good time, and for free too? I would put up with the heat and a humming man any day.

When we went there were two high school girlies who thought it was ok to SING them. Needless to say we gave them crusties and even shushed them! Hey-we paid for our seats ok?? :)

I'm glad you posted the picture of the seats. Because at first, I was thinking, "the man behind you...in the bushes?" What a creepy man.

Seriously, though. Remember the GUM at Man of la Mancha? Grrr...
