We love to spoil ourselves for Christmas/Bday/Anniversary and get tickets to the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. We get the cheap seats and end up paying about $30 a ticket (not too bad considering that it's $11-$12 to go the the movie theater now!) The Pantages is a small theater and even though we were in the back row we could see just fine! Later on this year we're going to Grease (well I'm going--Thad refuses), Mamma Mia, Fiddler on the Roof and Legally Blonde (which had great reviews on Broadway). I think that we have a fun year in store for us!
Last night was our night for Phantom of the Opera. It opened on the 21st of January and you could see that they were just excited to be there! I don't how many times Thaddeus has seen this play, and I think that this was my 4th time (Ahmanson, Pantages, Broadway, and then the Pantages I think?!) but we sure loved seeing it again last night! It is such a fun show with fun songs and an intense love story. I definitely noticed and enjoyed new things last night and Thad said that it was one of the best performances that he's seen. The actors had great voices and that really made it great.
P.S. Before we snuck out for the night with our friends the Pasketts we went to eat at Lucille's. I'd never been there (it's a bit out of our price range) but they'd given us a gift certificate for Christmas so we went. It was delicious and definitely good eats! Thad and I split something (which was more than enough food) and still have $20 to eat there again! Woo hoo! :)
