The Importance of Being Social

I am not by nature a social person. I don’t know what it is about socialising, but actually doing it is hard. Instead of friends, I have a blog. That’s not to say I am a total loner. I’m from a huge family, and I do have friends. I have the best friends a girl could ask for. But I’m far more comfortable watching Phantom of the Opera with Kelly and her sister in the comfort of their living room than going out in to the wide world.

That being said, there is something that wills me to leave the Shire and venture out in to the realm of people.

I adore the stage. I’m not an actress, or a singer, or a dancer; I am merely an enthusiast. I lack any kind of theatrical talent, and commend those who do. It’s why I write show reviews. It’s a form of appreciation. And it’s not just famous companies I watch. Local and amateur groups are fun too.

This Friday, I’m going to see my dearest best friend in her musical. October is West Side Story. December is the Dance Christmas Show. January is Women of Troy. April is Midsummer Night’s Dream. Those are just the tickets I’ve confirmed.

So tomorrow, you can expect a review on Kelly’s show.

And starting next Monday, you can expect Les Mis week. I’ll be talking about the book, the musical, two different versions of the movie, and the characters.

So if you have any questions about Les Mis, my preferences or anything like that, please let me know in the comments! I love to hear from you guys, and it’s nice to have requests. And if you want to get involved, please do! Do it on your own blogs! Make a video! Tweet! Really, any platform will do. But get involved.

Les Mis Week. Coming soon to a desktop near you!
