Yes! You got it right!
I’m talking about watching Wednesday singing a love song with Lucas in Friday night!
It’s the dark-soul skinny little girl from The Addams Family, wanting to get married to the love of her life, Lucas Beineke and in instant I fell in love with this Broadway musical. YAIY!
I was so happy when Bandi said he would love to accompany me to watch this. I know he’s not a fan of going to a theatre. So far he’s done that only for me and he always fell asleep even before intermission.
At first I didn’t have the heart to ask him wasting his money again for theatre unless it’s special occasion. So when Phantom of the Opera announced to come to Singapore, I tagged along with friends to watch it. But nobody seemed to want to watch The Addams family because it comes from comic and it’s not an award winning musical like Phantom of the Opera obviously.
I have never watched broadway musical before. I watched Laskar Pelangi musical and it was AWESOME! Then I watched some musical like into the woods played by local people. It was quite good but never once watched a broadway quality musical.
AND THEN there was 40% discount promotion and Bandi told me, “Do you want to watch The Addams Family?”
YES YES YES!!!!
So last Friday when the day finally came I was super excited!!! I met Bandi at Marina Bay Sands around 7:30 (the show was on 8pm). I was a little confused because everyone was bringing Phantom of the Opera posters, buying Phantom of the Opera merchandise etc. I knew that Marina Bay Sands Theatre also held Phantom of the Opera which was opening last week but isn’t it weird that nobody seemed to be exciting for Addams Family.
After I came back from the toilet Bandi asked to see the tickets and BAM! I did a very stupid mistake.
It was written Grand Festive Theatre, Resort World Sentosa.
(I know, I know, I was so stupid I deserved to be slapped.)
Bandi was furious I could see from his face. He asked me, “How did you not know it’s in Sentosa?”
“Well, I only read the Grand Theatre so I figured it was in Marina Bay Grand Theatre…” (Why are they so freakin NOT CREATIVE naming all the theatre with same names!)
I showed Bandi my cutest minion face but (obviously) it didn’t work.
Bandi stormed out from the Theatre (yeah the amazing thing is, we managed to get into the theatre!!! Weird huh?) and found taxi. By the time we rode the taxi it was 8 pm straight. It’s almost impossible to make it.
The taxi driver promised me to reach Sentosa in 12 minutes and holy cow he kept that promise!
Bandi and I both ran like mad cow to the Theatre and yeah, we missed it. (OF COURSE, DUH!)
We missed the first act. We were let to go in when the second act started. After that it was pretty much awesomeness. =)
I have never seen Bandi enjoyed musical before (unless Laskar Pelangi because he’s a hardcore nationalist) but we did have a great time watching The Addams Family. The lyrics are rhyming and beautiful, the songs are catchy, the characters are funny and the sense of humor is so dark and witty. And the choreography oh my!!!! SUPER AWESOMENESS.
This post might be a little exaggerating because this is my first broadway musical, and I must tell you, I AM HOOKED!!! I want more!!!
Here are some of the images taken from internet:
I love how this simple story could be so meaningful and no matter how weird Morticia and Gomez are, they love each other. And that love conquers all.
There is also one scene between Morticia and Mal talking about marriage and I found it to be true. Morticia said that in marriage, there should be no secrets ever. You have to share every thing with your spouse. ( I agree)
There is one more memorable scene between Wednesday and Lucas when Lucas refused to run away with Wednesday. Lucas is the kind of guy who thinks logically and Wednesday is so impulsive. She said “your problem is that you’re not crazy enough” and Lucas replied, “I can be impulsive… I just need time to think about it first.”
I laughed on that moment understanding that Lucas is so like Bandi. He tries to be more impulsive and it’s fun to see that but in the end, Wednesday would listen to what Lucas says. That you need balance in a relationship. You can’t be too crazy and you can’t be too dull.
I love how I bring the craziness into the relationship and how Bandi calms me down. I love us. =)
“Right and wrong, who’s to say which we should refuse. All we know, love survives either way we choose. Here you are at the edge, go ahead and fall. Don’t resist, I insist. Love still conquers all.”
