Two of my favorite activities are going to Disney World and enjoying a good show at the theater. When the two collide, it's kinda a big deal for me, and that's what happened tonight! I have been dying to see Aladdin for a while, so when I heard it was coming to Cincinnati, I mentioned it to Eric and he bought me tickets for Christmas.
I have seen the tours of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, and I have to say that even though I loved those shows, Aladdin knocked them both out of the water. It was spectacular! If you've seen the other two productions, you how that "Circle of Life" and "Be Our Guest" are just over-the-top wonderful. But every single scene of Aladdin was that caliber.
The costumes, the sets, the production, was just unbelievable. And of course, the company was even better. Eric was such a trooper when my printed tickets didn't scan and I then lost our temporary tickets before even making it into the theater. He is a patient, patient man. Thank goodness!
Whenever we travel, we try to get an ornament to commemorate our trip and we have a "travel tree" at Christmas. I promise it's not as tacky as it sounds. Ha! Anyway, Eric bought me a Genie lamp to remember the evening. I can't wait to hang it up this year and remember our evening and the incredible show.
