So this past weekend The Professor and I went and saw Les Miserables on their official tour. I saw the show several years ago in London and to this day it remains my all time favorite musical. I remember sitting in that theatre that first time and I swear I think I cried through the entire show and then when it was all over, I just wanted everyone to leave so that I could sit and weep for a while. It struck me on so many levels. The music is powerful and moving, the story compelling, hopeful yet heart wrenching and the singing, well, there are hardly adjectives to describe it.
Early in our dating life we were talking about movies that we both liked and he mentioned that one of his top five favorites was the Les Miserables version with Liam Neeson. He hadn’t ever seen the broadway show and hadn’t even heard the music. I knew right then that it was something I wanted to share with him. I knew he’d love it. And he did. Totally and completely. It was magical to share it with him and it was just as moving and amazing as I remembered.
There are lots of things that I want to experience with him, mostly it’s travel related stuff, but this was definitely a big one. So how about y’all, do you have like a bucket list of things you want to do with your partner? Have you ever gotten to share something with them that was so special to you? And have y’all ever seen Les Mis on stage?
