Les Miserables Tampa 2012

Posted on 08. Feb, 2012 by in Artsy Crafty

Tonight I’m going to see Les Misérables at the Straz Center in downtown Tampa! Better yet, my friend and I have fourth-row seats. We couldn’t convince our husbands to tag along and spend $80 each to watch a bunch of people dancing and singing on stage, but hey we need them to baby-sit anyway.

During my years as a music education major (and yes, if you’re wondering, I did graduate–I used to have a neighbor who constantly brought up the fact that she was a drama major, which led me to believe she never actually earned a degree) I saw a lot of musicals but I haven’t been to one in years. I’m beyond excited!

UPDATE:

It was excellent! I’d go again in a heartbeat. If you don’t know the story of Les Mis, check out the official website here.

Some women – and some men  – think that in order to be feminine, you must have long hair. I’ve had short hair for over ten years, so I speak from experience – it really is possible to look girly with short hair. I’ve yet to be mistaken for a man! (I’ll let you know if it ever happens.)

If you seriously think long hair translates into feminine, you may have forgotten just how good (and womanly) Halle Berry looks when she decides to get a pixie cut.

By the way, I think Halle looks great with short hair!
