I love theatre, especially the musical kind.
Tonight, after much work on the part of many people, we finally got to sit down and watch an official, real, full performance of the world premier of the musical “For Tonight“.
Throughout its preparation and rehearsal time, I had learned all about the story of the show, and didn’t think anything super special about it…
Upon my actually sitting in one of the final run-throughs to do notes, I heard, for the first time, the music, the songs…
And I spent a good portion of the show, to varying degrees, in tears – it was that wonderful and beautiful.
Tonight, after seeing the whole show, with everything mostly polished and actually in order, I fell even more in love with this show and its music.
Let’s be real here: I want a CD right now, so I can listen to those voices singing those songs over and over (and over) again, until the words ride within me on their own… at the moment, I can feel the music inside me, swirling around, whooshing to the various rhythms and beats…, I just don’t have all the words in there, nor any sort of organization going from one song to another…
After tonight, I have my mental fingers crossed like crazy to have an album recorded, which would be totally awesome, using this cast of voices – I love these voices, both individually and as a whole cast.
Yumm… that’s how wonderful the Romani and all the others sound – you just want to eat them up, but savor them, too, like your favorite food/dessert.
