Matilda the Musical

We made the most of Con and Shelb's last night in the city. I worked a bunch during that cold week but was so happy to come home and meet up with them for one fun activity after another. They walked right into Shubert Theatre minutes before curtain and got great seats for Matilda The Musical. I was a little late but only missed the opening song. The musical started in London a few years ago and made its way to Broadway in 2013. Since then, its won multiple Tony Awards. To say we were blown away by this production is an understatement. It's simply incredible. The music is catchy, the set is unbelievable, and the young actors are insanely talented. The highlights for me: the choreogrpahy during "School Song" as the kids climbed the letter blocks and of course, the big finale when the kids stand on top of their desks singing "Revolting Children". When Brucie takes the mic for his big solo I was crying happy tears. Needless to say, Matilda is magical! Go see it! It's easily in my Top 5 now. Musicals leave me on cloud nine just extremely happy to be alive. We saw four shows in six days. It was really hard to say goodbye to my Broadway buddies. We ended the night with Shake Shack for dinner and then Max Brenner's for dessert. I put these two in a cab the next morning and tears ran down my face as I watched them drive away. They came to visit at the perfect time. It was a rough winter and Scott and I were both working crazy hours. I didn't realize just how much I needed to see family until they left. Thanks, Con and Shelb for letting me play third wheel all week. It did my heart a whole lot of good.
