This weekend was so fun!!! As you noted in my last post, I took a trip to the ATL this weekend to see my beautiful sister perform a Broadway musical.
I am a major fan of Broadway music, but I did not know any of the music for Joseph/Dream coat. I knew the story of Joseph. Duh. But it was one of the few productions that I did not know anything about at all.
That meant that on Friday night when I got to the first performance there was a freshness to the experience that I do not often get to see. Every song was new and the stage production “secrets” were very new! I did not expect the brothers and wives to take a trip to Oklahoma, including a bonafide hoe down. My sister was the most dramatic mourner on stage during the crying scene. I found myself sitting in the audience and sort of mimic-ing her facial expressions. I think if your expressions are so powerful that the audience mimics you, you are excellently powerful!
I did not expect Pharaoh to have been a past life incarnation of Elvis. I did not expect the hairy Ishmaelites to be walking a stuffed camel across the stage. Hilarious! I laughed out loud!
This one is posted on my mom’s blog too. Oh, all these pictures are taken by my mother – who really knows how to use the buttons on her camera! My pictures are still just point and shoot quality. I think my sister is particularly cute here.
Our Jacksonville friends and our aunt and uncle came to the performances too. It was good to have family there. I am so proud of my sister!
