A Dream Come True!!

So just got back from seeing Beauty and the Beast this weekend.  Took the 4 oldest kids to Seattle and caught the matinee show.  It…Was…Fabulous!!  It was everything I hoped it would be.  I have been wanting to see this one for years and I was not disappointed.  Gaston was hilarious, Belle was sweet and the Beast gave me goosebumps.  The Beast’s song is one of my very favorite songs ever.  I was waiting with baited breathe to hear this man’s voice.  This would make or break the whole show for me as to how he sang that song.  And he was great!  The key change and ending note were wonderful and I was almost sobbing by the time he was done.  Tears streaming down my face, I clapped til my hands were hurting.  I think the people sitting next to us thought I was nuts, but that song has always touched me so deeply and to hear it live just ups the emotions.  My heart soared even more when my son (who is 9) made the comment, “mom, sometimes that music makes my eyes water”  *sigh*  what more could I ask for than to have my children touched so strongly by such wonderful music?  I loved it and I loved that they loved it.  What a fantastic experience.  Thank you and bravo to a fabulous cast and crew.  I hope many more will enjoy it just as much as we did.
