Stomp!

Noe got 6 tickets for Stomp! Once in awhile we get an opportunity to see other shows, courtesy of his work. Tonight I took Leigha and met my aunt and uncle at the theater. Leigha absolutely LOVED Noe's Cirque de Soliel show, "O". I don't think that was the case with tonight's show. After the first scene she made the people around us crack up. She asked me if they were going to be cleaning the entire time.

For those of you who are not familiar with Stomp, they are a group of performers that make music out of the most bizarre things (lighters being one of the oddest.) She kept wanting to whisper, but I had to explain that it was very important that we be silent. She then tried to dance around like them, and bouncing in her seat, but I had to curtail that too! I think the show was too repetative for her. I kept noticing that she was yawning throughout the show. Then she fell asleep for the last 20 minutes. You have to understand that this was no quiet performance! I can't believe the amount of noise she slept through.

The rest of us enjoyed the show! It's been a long time since I have seen Stomp (maybe about 14 years ago?) I got the shock of a lifetime when I read the stage bill and ran across my friend I skated with when I worked for Disney on Ice! That was neat! I highly recommend Stomp to anyone who has the chance to see it!

The highlight for Leigha came after the show. Aunt Bobbie and Uncle Jerry invited Leigha to stay the night at their house! You should have seen the smile on her face. There was no hesitation, other than wondering how she would brush her teeth. In addition, Tuesday is the day in which my aunt and her friends get together for lunch. Leigha gets to join them tomorrow!

Sounds awesome! I can imagine Leigha will feel like such a big girl being out with all the women and getting doted on!
