Hey, all. 🙂 Yesterday, I went to On Your Feet! The Emilio & Gloria Estefan Broadway Musical.
Of course, the tickets for the seats next to me were already sold out so boyfriend had to just drop me off and I watched it all by myself!
We didn’t do much before it was time to leave for the musical. We had dinner and I wrote up The Best WP Posts I Read post I published yesterday. We also stopped at Starbucks for an espresso-filled frapp before he dropped me off.
I have to be honest… I thought the singing in this musical could have definitely been better. I think Gloria’s mother (Nancy Ticotin) had the most talent in that department.
Gloria (Christie Prades) was such a good actress. When she transitions from teenager to adult, I was nearly fooled that she was a whole different person! Her singing voice was so off though, you guys… at certain points I wanted to put ear muffs on!
In the musical numbers, there was LOTS of dancing and oftentimes, it annoyed me because I’d rather have them go on with the story and/or sing? You know what I mean? I really loved all of the boy-girl duets. Especially the one with Emilio (Mauricio Martínez) and Gloria’s mother. The songs were all lovely, there wasn’t one that I got bored during (except when they would just keep dancing!).
I giggled a bit here and there, there were a good amount of funny punchlines. I liked the story and found it inspiring, truly. I even teared up a little at one part. I just… can’t get over how bad Gloria’s voice was!? Like, was that for real?! Maybe something was going wrong? The show also started late which never happens… who knows…
The audience was especially rude, too. There was more than one phone that went off and the employees kept going in and out of a loud door that let in super bright lights.
Out of all the musicals I’ve been to so far (not many), this one had the most light shows, electronics, and background changes. It was awesome but, also a little dizzying!
After the show, I came home and binge-watched the shit out of Love Island! Man, there are a lot of episodes in one season.
Today, we woke up a little past noon and I just laid in the bed and caught up on my Reader the best I could while boyfriend did the dishes and fed the cats etc. I got up for a shower around 4 PM and he started on dinner.
It was so yummy! I told him he should be a chef because he seriously perfects every meal lately. Like… I am not even just saying that because he’s my man– he’s really good!! He does need to learn how to cook rice properly though.
We watched Big Brother while we ate and it just doesn’t even matter to me anymore! I hate mostly everyone that’s left in the house and the ONLY girl I like is probably going to go home… (No spoilers, please, I am not completely caught up).
As usual, after dinner, we went to Starbucks for our 3 shots of espresso. We also had to go to the dispensary to pick up some weed and the smoke shop so boyfriend could buy his ciggies and our blunt wraps.
When we got home, I did my best to reply to all of your wonderful comments but, stupid fucking WP doesn’t show all of my notifications!! They get cut off when I don’t check them for ONE DAY so I’m so sorry if I have left you hanging somewhere. 😦 If there was something you really wanted me to reply to, please let me know!
I need to go get ready for work now. Today’s my Monday– the first day of my 4-day work week. Wish me luck! ❤
