As an early Mothers' Day present, my mom and I are heading out this afteroon to see a production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". I love that musical. So much in fact, that this is my second time seeing it in about two weeks.
I love musicals. I've seen several in the past year. There's something about the music and dancing that gets me going. I'd much prefer to watch a musical than sit through a play.
Which is funny, because I can't carry a tune in a bucket. I've actually been in several church musicals. I can handle the dancing part, no problem. As for the singing, I usually go the Milli Vanilli route.
Maybe that's why music in general appeals to me so much. A living vicariously type of thing. Music inspires a lot of my writing. A song, or a line from a song, can start visions of characters and conflict and happily-ever-after dancing in my head. I'm especially fond of country music. A friend once said, "There's a story in every song." And it's true.
So what about you? Are you a musical or a play type person?
Until next time,
