A friend of mine and her husband are extreme theatre enthusiasts.
They are both actively involved in the theatre scene, have been in countless productions, and are members of the board.
It's quite adorable, actually...
They met at a theatre and got married at a theatre.
A young couple with no kids, who love the stage.
They had been rehearsing all winter for a huge production in which her hubby won the a lead role, so when the weekend before the premiere came around and she asked me if I would like to attend the final dress rehearsal (in which they were allowed to invite close friends and/or family)...
I was all in!
The show was very good, and it got me reminiscing about my childhood. There was always music in our house. I remember my dad was constantly learning a new song, singing whenever he was awake... memorizing lyrics, dashing off for rehearsal with his quartet, or meeting his piano player to practice before church on Sunday.
This made me miss his voice.
It's quite something when you realize how much you really look up to someone.
My dad and I always joke about how we wish our lives were like musicals,
... but I guess my childhood kind of was one :-)
