16, I went to see Movin' Out...

It's actually pretty funny-prior to seeing Movin' Out I had a discussion about Broadway "virginity", and actually considered skipping my first ever trip to New York so that I could save my first time for a show I was more excited about... (I'm famous for my anti-Jukebox Musicals stance at my school, and it was just so IRONIC that it would be my first show...)

12, Beauty and the Beast on a school trip.
If Percy Blakeney were in Les Mis....

Percy: Sink me! If it isn't Javvurt!
Javert: Zsah-vair, it's pronounced Zsah-vair.
Pecry: But it's spelled J-A-V-E-R-T Javvurt.
Javert: Repeat after me Zsah...Zsah....
Percy: Oh! Zsa-Zsa! Like the Gabor sister! Well I personally have always prefered Eva.
Javert: (Looks for gun)

6. My Fair Lady with Richard Chamberlain and Melissa Errico. All I remember was that it wasn't as much of a spectacle as the movie, and how impressed I was that Melissa Errico was only 23.

I was six when Julie Andrews gently lifted it away at the world premiere of Camelot (my first time in a dark suit). Oh, Richard, Robert and Roddy were there too...

Technically, i've been in love with musical theatre since I was 8 years old, but I didn't lose my virginity till I was 10 years old when I saw RENT. (Yes, a 10 year old at RENT.)

I was 7 years old and I had just gotten out of the hospital from a massive athsma attack.
I saw the revival of the King and I. I remember thinking "I could totally be one of those kids" and have had the theater bug ever since.
"No two shows are alike in the making. Each show is a living piece of your life in a small unreal world with its own character and integrity; its own new set of memorable experiences and incredible happenings. You begin to love and adapt to its strangeness. Dreams harden into substance. Values come into focus. You wish it would never end. The dream world vanishes like mist before a rising sun; part of you vanishes with it. And back you land in the real world with a thud- fogged, uneasy, jittery, difficult to get along with. There is only one cure. A new show. A new, small unreal world; new visions, experiences, incredible happenings. Again you love it, adapt to it, wish it would never end. But end it does. Another part of you vanishes. That's show business."-Anonymous

1996 - RENT BABY!!!
I made a list of all your faults, it was quite detailed and lengthy too and when I read it through I missed you. Your like a classic Eagles song, you just cant help but sing along even though it sometimes gets annoying too. I just know I want to be wherever I can wake and see you there next to me. **High Fidelity** Love is what I do **The Wedding Singer** Xanadu - Best NEW Musical of the Season!

I should elaborate, I was 16 Years Old; 1996 I saw the OBC of RENT and that started it all. I went from Hardcore Rap Music to listening to Light in the Piazza...hahaha! What a change. Since then!

I saw my first professional show much earlier, but I was 22 when I saw my first show on Broadway- Man of La Mancha (revival). It was the first time I ever got to spend more than a few hours in NY. During that trip, I saw 4 shows.
