West Side Story on Broadway

I wish my schedule wasn't so busy so I could update this more, but right now I have softball everyday and jazz band on Monday and work on the weekends... ugh. Oh well. Yesterday was an awesome day and, as you can tell by the post title, I went with my school band to see West Side Story on Broadway. IT WAS AMAZING!!! It was easily one of the best musicals I have ever seen and it is definitely one I would want to see again. The music was fantastic and the dancing was phenomenal. The movie just doesn't do it justice.

The only problem was the annoying people around us! I was sitting right above the doorway to the balcony right below us and people kept coming in and out during the play and standing right in the middle of the aisle so I couldn't see. And then this group of people were waving a flashlight around trying to read their prompt and someone's cell phone went off in the last scene. For anyone who's seen the play or knows it, you know that it's dead silent and horrible and sad and it was ruined by someone's cell phone. But other than stupid people I would recomend everyone go and see the play or at least see the movie!

*sigh* Don't you hate other people around you? If only you could have the entire theater by yourself!

I love watching live performances - it's just a wildly amazing and different experience than a movie!
