Rock of Ages!!!! Coming to Ottawa (2013)

I have decided to drag my husband to see Rock of Ages at the Ottawa National Arts Centre in 2013. Why? It is an amazing show! I saw it with a friend in Toronto on July 10th, 2010.

What I remember the most is Yvan Pedneault! He was hilarious! He incorporated the fact that he had a french accent! The only thing I am disapointed about is that he is not touring and won't be part of the cast for the Ottawa show.

This was my second Toronto theatre trip in two years and the second show that Yvan Pedneault starred in. I swear it was not planned just a happy coincidence. Look how cute he is :)


Now I need to see the movie . . . has anyone seen it? I have heard mixed reviews . . .

Be our guest! Be our guest!!!

I can't wait for my daughter Mya to be old enough to come with mom to see shows like Lion King and Beauty and the Beast!

Even if the cast was horrible or the stage decor fell apart it wouldn't matter since Lumiere would sing the famous Be our Guest song! I love that song! It is right up there with Hakuna Matata from the Lion King.

It is easy to understand the shows 13 year popularity. Belle, Gaston, and the Beast were amazing! I must say that it would have been extremely easy for Belle to be sickeningly sweet (you know the kind that is so not believable that it is annoying!) It was a non stop action pack play!

I have been lucky enough to see Disney's Lion King at the National Arts Centre and hopefully Broadway Accross Canada will be bringing many more Disney classics to the Ottawa stage!

A MUST SEE!!!! and definitely one that I will add to my list to see again :)

Cats! One of the worst shows!

I saw Cats with my sister in-law on February 8th, 2011 and we both wanted to leave at the intermission. However since we were sitting up in the front rows we figured the cast would notice the empty seats  . . . funny enough the people in front of us didn't think that way since they didn't come back . . .

The cast was so good at their job that it was a little creepy . . . at some point they came upon us in the orchestra seating licking paws (hands and feet).

From what I could tell by the discussions between people while leaving the National Arts Centre this is one of the shows that you either LOVE it or HATE it. Unfortunately I am in the HATE it category

Did you enjoy it?

Proof of my love of THEATRE!!

I was going through some boxes this morning and I discovered my box of tickets and programs from all the plays and concerts I have enjoyed.


I sat there and looked through them . . .  Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Evita, Stomp (twice), Mamma Mia (twice) and the list goes on! This box is proof that I truly have a love and passion for theatre in every shape and form.


One thing is sure I am going to do everything I can to ensure that my daughter Mya discovers her love and passion for theatre. I told my husband the other day I will never say no to Mya when she asks for a book! I think that idea will also be applied to show tickets :0
