A Musical Birthday Extravaganza … in London

There is no secret that I love musical theater. I first fell in love with musical theater the very first time I saw Miss Saigon in New York City back in 1994. I can't even really begin to count the number of shows that I've seen, which include: Phantom of the Opera, the Lion King, Wicked, Rent, Miss Saigon, etc.

I surprisingly came home from Tanzania with more money than I expected. Knowing the my birthday was coming up in a couple of weeks and that I rarely ever do anything for my birthday I started to plot what I thought I might do. At first I thought I'd fly to Chicago and see a show there .... and then I thought bigger, New York City. After all, there are way more choices there. Then, the night before Halloween I came to the conclusion that I was going to do something even more epic. I was going to fly to London to see Wicked again ... and a couple of other shows.

Well, my "couple" of other shows has turned into an entire week of Musical Theater. Planned so far I have:
Musical: Mamma Mia
** My 2nd time
18-Nov-2015 - Matinee
Musical: Lion King
** My 3rd time
18-Nov-2015 - Evening
Musical: Billy Elliot
** My 1st time
- Matinee
Musical: Miss Saigon
** My 3rd time
19-Nov-2015 - Evening
Musical: Wicked
** My 13th time
Musical: Cats
** My 1st time
Musical: Kinky Boots
** My 1st time


I am very passionate about traveling. My goal is to visit as many places and experience as many things as I can during my short journey on this earth.
