The Phantom!

I have always loved plays and musicals so as an early birthday present my parent bought Kevin and I Broadway tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera on Saturday which is celebrating its' 20th year anniversary!
The Phantom is Broadway's "Most Haunted Love Story" that you ever have the chance to go, you should not miss it! We had a great time and there is nothing like watching a real Broadway play and of course the music is just so awesome especially with the live orchestra.

Le Fantôme de l'Opéra was actually a book published in 1911 by Gaston Leroux. He wrote the book explaining how he carried out his own enquiries into the strange events that had occurred in the famous Opera House in the 1880s. He tells of how he visited the huge underground lake where the Phantom hid and even stumbled upon the skeletons of "some poor wretches who had been massacred under the Commune in the cellars of the Opera."

Thanks Mom & Dad we love you!

Sounds like a wonderful night. The song "All I ask of You" is one of my favorite songs and the song JP and I danced to at our wedding!
