My fondest dream is coming true. I am turning M into a lover of Broadway musical scores. First, I eased her into that direction by letting her listen to both of my Lascivious Biddies CDs. Now I have her listening to Hairspray. I thought she was only going to listen to it, but she actually read the plot synopsis in the liner notes. I'm so proud!
When I was M's age, one of my favorite pastimes was to read the book of a musical while listening to the score. Our local library had these collections for each year called "Best Plays of _____"; I wonder if they still publish those? I would love to read the book for Wicked or Avenue Q, since I doubt I will ever get a chance to see either one.
