A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went and saw Les Misérables playing in Vancouver... I wasn't sure what to expect, since I'm not really a fan of musicals, and have never really had urges to go in the past. The whole thing was very new to me, so I thought I might as well give it a shot. It took me awhile to accept that every piece of dialogue was sung (naive me thought it would just be interludes of music... lesson learned). Anyhoo, I was pleasantly surprised - it was quite good and several of the singers had very powerful and moving moments. I'm glad we went and that I got to experience my first Broadway-type musical... although, I don't think I am quite ready for Cats.
