Outfit Watch! Off to the Theater…

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

You may or may not be aware that I am a major Broadway geek. Like in a would-totally-geek-out-if-I-met-Idina Menzel slash quotes-"Into the Woods"-at-regular-intervals kind of way. ("When the end is right it justifies the beans!") "Spring Awakening" was playing all month at the Kennedy Center, and I scored front row tickets for the second-to-last night of the run this weekend (I actually scored a front row seat for early July, but couldn't make it, to my insane disappointment.) It was amaaaazing. And it was also the occasion to wear a really great dress: in this case, Manish Arora's voluminous, colofrul confection, which (if you remember) was first drooled over by me at India Fashion Week several years ago and brought in by Anthropologie (of all places) last year.

Fashion and showtunes! It was the perfect combination. Here is me at my most utterly happy (and, likely, singing "My Junk" in my head):

Wow! Amazing dress, you look fab!

I also LOVE musicals, and quote them all the time, especially Sondheim....The Slotted spoon can catch the potato! :-)

I haven't seen Spring Awakening, I missed it in London. I was lucky enough to see a great production of A little night music recently though.

Lots Of Love x

Catherine said...

I absolutely loved Spring Awakening! I don't know anyone else who knows it, bar my best friend and a couple of people from my old drama group!
I didn't see the Broadway show, but we were at the first show for its Westend opening, and although I already loved the soundtrack at that stage, I just worshiped it from then on!!!!
