A Sunday Filled with Music

Yesterday was a busy musical entertainment filled day. We started the afternoon with our Broadway in Utah performance of Ain't Misbehavin' staring Ruben Studdard . Yes that is Ruben Studdard of American Idol fame. I must say it was not my favorite show. Lots of songs/ no plot. Oh well Wicked is up next.

The evening ended with the Celine Dion concert which was amazing. I would not count myself as a serious, crazy Celine fan, and after last night I realize there are a lot of those, but I thought it would be a fun show to go to and when she canceled in November and rescheduled on a Sunday I knew we could get great tickets. She was as dramatic and over the top as I thought she would be but I loved it. We sat around some very serious Celine fans and the highlight of the show, for them, was the last song of the night, the theme from the Titanic they went crazy. There were 6 outfit changes and all of the dresses she wore were stunning! She is super tiny and has tons of energy.

As you can see from this photo were we were part of the very first to arrive. We had really good seats. There were two ramps that went up the sides and one was right by us so we had a great view.

When she sang the Titanic song all of these chandeliers with candles came down from the ceiling. It was both really cool and sappy at the same time. I liked it.

I don't know maybe after last night I have become one of the crazy Celine fans...
