Back in October 2006, I got an email from Zions Bank saying that there was a special offer for ccustomers to buy tickets to Pioneer Theatre Company’s production of Les Miserables before tickets went on sale to the general public. Nancy’s birthday was coming up and I figured it would be a nice gift for her. I logged on and, although the website was a little slow, I was able to purchase tickets. Little did I know that PTC’s production of Les Mis would become one of the hottest tickets in town. Well, we’ve waited for six months and now the time is finally here. Nancy and I are going to see Les Miserables tomorrow (Friday).
I’ve read the book and seen the movie with Liam Neeson but I’ve never seen the musical. Of course Nancy has been listening to and humming the soundtrack of Les Miserables for the past six months so there definitely won’t be any surprises. That being said, we’re both excited to see it and I’ll post my review of it on Saturday.
I’m hoping that taking Nancy to Les Mis will earn me some brownie-points in the husband department. How many husbands out there planned six months ahead in order to get tickets to the hottest show in town? The fact that I did has got to be worth at least a back scratch or something.
