A Year of Culture

I love musical theater.

I can't quite trace back exactly how this began. but it's definitely a true statement today If this were a scene from The Broken Hearts Club, then my love of Broadway and show tunes could definitely fall under the category of "Rocky's Obviously Gay Traits" or something.

And thankfully, Tobie shares this love with me as well. And thus he's enthusiastically enjoyed all of our theater venture together. After all, we're the guys who actually went all the way to Singapore to watch a show together.

I don't always bring my camera with me to such shows - it always feels weird to bring such things to a theater after all. Their use is highly prohibited once the show begins and I've always been one to play by the rules. But I still managed a few shots here and there on the days that I made sure to bring our camera along.

As I go over the year, we've watched the following plays and joined a movie festival to boot:
Cinemalaya 2011

Little Shop of Horrors (Ateneo Blue Repertory)

Sweet Charity (9 Works Theatrical)

The Lion King (Base Productions Singapore)

In the Heights (Atlantis Productions)
Still undecided if we'll be watching Atlantis Productions' Little Mermaid or Repertory Philippines' Peter Pan, but that still leaves us with a pretty full year of culture through theater. And already for 2012 we're mapping out another Singapore trip to try and catch Wicked! So exciting!

It's always a great thing to find things that you and your partner can celebrate together. And thankfully, theater and related cultural events is definitely something that Tobie and I will continue to enjoy for the rest of our lives together.
