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?
