During my first visit to New York City, I was invited to see a Broadway Musical. I had never seen a musical in my life before, let alone on Broadway.
The musical was Les Misérables. I had no idea what it was about, and I figured – “Well, it’s free so I’ll go.”
Little did I know that this musical will remain with me forever. I remember watching it and sort of learning that the story seemed familiar. I realized then that I had seen the story while watching a black and white film of the same title while I was growing up.
I have seen the musical five times in my life. And if the musical comes to Philadelphia, I will probably see it again.
That is why I cannot wait to see this film. On Christmas Day too! Perfect treat!
