I got my FOJG package yesterday! I wasn’t expecting it because everyone else has been having problems receiving theirs. I got mine in a little over eight weeks. I was so excited. I’m still excited. I like the box, but I don’t know what to put in it. Oh well, I figure something out.

Also, yesterday I listened to ‘Les Misérables’ from the original 1986 London cast. I have always liked the music from it. My parents saw it in London a long time ago and they brought back the soundtrack. Anyways, my family is going to see ‘Les Misérables’ in June when the Pioneer Theatre Company puts it on. The funny thing is it was in such popular demand that they extended the dates out another week. It is now running from April 27 through June 16. My dad works for the University of Utah so he got us tickets on my birthday…June 7th. I am really excited. I decided to listen to the original 1991 Broadway recording to see what the difference is. Dad says there is a difference. I hope there is not a big difference because I really like the London recording.

Speaking of musicals…I am listening to ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ right now and I recognize a lot of the songs. I even recognize some of the voices. Ok…I looked it up and I am listening to the 1997 Broadway cast. Robert Cuccioli is Jekyll/Hyde, Christiane Noll is Emma, and Linda Eder (whom I recognize the most) is Lucy. No one probably cares about any of this but it is interesting to me. The more I listen to the more songs I recognize. Pretty much all of them I have heard before but didn’t know were from this musical. For example I hear ‘Someone Like You’ on the radio all the time. I even here the Linda Eder recording but I never thought that it was from ‘Jekyll & Hyde’. That is awesome!
