Love Changes Everything…

14 07 2011

I totally believe this to be true… But this isn’t a post about love.

It’s a post about the CLO show, Love Changes Everything. I posted after Christmas this year, that The Nana and The Papa bought me 3 shows at the CLO as a present, on the recommendation of Kells Bells… Tonight was the first one…

KB, thank you so much for the suggestion! I loved last night! Even if I sat alone! (I managed to not cry, though I thought I might during Memory…)

If you can mange to see this show, and especially if you like Andrew Lloyd Webber shows, DO IT. DO IT NOW.

It was amazing. I LOOOOOVE my seats for all the shows I’m going to see (same seats, each show) first row of the top tier. No looking over people’s heads to see the stage. (looking over heads isn’t really a problem at the Benedum, but I’m happy I have 1st row seats in that section) I was so excited tonight when the lovely usher showed me to my seat… I can’t wait to see Jesus Christ Superstar and Wicked later this summer….

Love Changes Everything is an experience of all Andrew Lloyd Webber’s amazing songs from his Broadway shows.  The shows featured were:

Amazing.  I wish The Nana was still in town so we could have gone together! I’ve already told her to see Love Changes Everything if it comes near her or Lili…

They featured shows I haven’t even seen and ones I have, and love.  Ones I’ve seen? Phantom and Cats. I haven’t seen a large number of them, but I’ll add Jesus Christ Superstar to my list of seen in August!

The orchestra was up on stage, and holy crap did I wish I went through with my HS dream of playing music for movies or live music… I was so jealous, and kept an eye on the clarinet player the whole show… That man played the clarinet, the bass clarinet, the flute, the sax and other things I couldn’t see through the piped-in fog… So. Jealous. (I couldn’t see the Euphonium player from my seat… I know he was there, because I could hear it, but OMG live orchestra or symphony makes me so sad I didn’t follow through!!! I’ll keep going though!)

I saw Phantom in Toronto with my family. With the original cast. Sara Brightman and Michael Crawford… It was different hearing other people sing what they did. The woman who sang tonight did it beautifully. They guy wasn’t the same as Crawford, but hot damn, did he do great with Music of the Night…

The songs from Cats were great as well… Memory was amazing!!! (Pseudo-Twin and I talked about the show tonight, and we both thought Memory was the best!!!)

I really wish they had included Mr. Mistofeles… And All I Ask of You… And a few others.

Overall, I think this one show was well worth the money my parents spent to give me this gift… I really, really loved it… And I cannot wait for the next one…

I’m probably going to ask for this gift of CLO Broadway for this Christmas as well. I love it… That or Pittsburgh Symphony tix. Or both.

Band nerd, reporting for duty, and proud of it…

The only thing that disappointed me was one dancer/singer who really just didn’t seem to be into it. She was the red-head, and in one number, she just seemed to NOT. CARE. At all.

And I got to one song I’ll hear at the show in August.
