i dreamed a dream

I had a dream the other night that the return of Les Miserables was sold out. Les Mis just went on sale Sunday and while, not sold out yet, is already selling like crazy! There are still tickets, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to say that in February when the show opens. This is one of those shows that excites audiences, a show that creates and brings memories to so many people. I love the show but it goes further than that.

My fondest memory of Les Mis is from the second time that I saw the show, this time in Chicago and with my two sons. The younger of my two sons was about six at the time and I thought he might never make it through the performance. But he did. He was completely wrapped up in the show and, right at the very end, fell asleep. The amazing part was when he woke up he cried all the way home because he missed the ending. It was so important to him that he begged me to take him back. He did in fact return and completely loved the show! He just did not want to miss a minute of it especially what he, at 6 years old, knew to be the all-important ending!

  1. I’m soo excited to just find out it’s coming back!! That was the first musical I ever saw, I think I was 8. I was amazed at the spectacle and it started my love of musical theater.
