On Monday my family and I went to see We Will Rock You in the West End. We have always been avid musical theatre goers, and I am so grateful to my parents for that. Musical Theatre is one of my favourite things I spend my hard earned money on. I am a huge ALW fan, with Whistle Down the Wind, Phantom and LND being my favourites of his, and then Les Miserables being my 'all time favourite musical'. I have been playing the flute since I was 9 years old, so I have a huge admiration and appreciation of composers, lyricists, musicians etc etc.
Anyway, so we went to see We Will Rock You on Monday for Freddie Mercury's 65th Birthday. I saw it years ago when I was about 14, and although I loved it then, I loved it even more this time around. The storyline, just like Love Never Dies, is pretty shockingly shit (excuse my language). Just like Love Never Dies it is the music which makes it what it is...utterly brilliant! We Will Rock You is great fun, everyone was up dancing and clapping and there were more than a few Freddie Mercury lookalikes and dress-ups (which I found slightly weird and creepy :/). All in all it was a fantastic night! And after visiting a saxophone shop on what my Dad says is the 'most famous street of music shops' in the country, I am having trouble deciding whether or not to trade in my Alto Saxophone for the Curved Soprano Saxophone I have always wanted. I'm such a hoarder, I just hate selling or giving away things people have given me as gifts or whatnot, especially things from my parents (the Alto Sax was my 15th birthday present from them). *sigh*
