Musicals I Saw During My 59th Year

. at . Leave a comment

This was one of my favorite musicals. It was athletically beautiful, and the story line was moving and encouraging.

These past several years, I’ve tried to do a yearlong project that equals my age. This helps me to remember how old I am. And it is a fun accomplishment. Some things I’ve done are as follows:

The year I turned 59 (2017), I challenged myself to watch 59 musicals. Facebook friends gave me 78 ideas. I had only seen 33/78. Not even a passing grade. Of course, there are more musicals than that, 100’s in fact.

So by combining the list from my friends and lists from the Internet, I came up with 59 choices. I created my Musicals Bucket List.

So did I actually watch 59 musicals last year? YES! In fact I ended up watching 67 of them! I watched the ones that were easy to find. They were at the library, on Amazon or Netflix, and on friends DVD’s. I even found one title at the thrift store (Funny Lady) for $1.00. This was a fun project! I feel so cultured now.

Keep reading to see what I watched.
