The Book of Mormon

I feel like I’m blowing through things on my 30 Before 30 list! I love going to shows – especially new ones – and I’m lucky to have a friend who got tickets for Christmas to The Book of Mormon at The Fox! It’s actually rare that I see a show that I know almost nothing about and don’t know any of the music from, but I had never heard anything but great things about this show.

It’s definitely not a family-friendly show. And I can see why some people would be offended by some of the content (it was written by the writers of South Park, after all). But if you’re not easily offended and have a laid-back sense of humor, you’ll love this show.

Mary Poppins

#42 on my 101 list is to see a few stage shows or musicals that I’ve never seen. I love shows, but they can be a little pricey. I’m not sure I would complete this one if I hadn’t moved home with a mama who also loves shows. Last week we ventured to the Fox Theater to see Mary Poppins! I was excited because I love the movie – I, however, had not thought about the fact that it would be different than the movie as the stage production is based on the book!

It was a great show – just had some additional songs and a little different order. The general storyline was a little different also. But all the classics were there – the dancing was great and the kids who played Michael and Jane were amazing. I definitely recommend it – just don’t expect your classic, happy-go-lucky Mary Poppins.
