[Title of Show]

If you haven't heard of this musical, you must youtube it. I don't think I would do it justice trying to explain it, so please direct your attention to wiki for a moment.

Last night I was lucky enough to see the closing performance from the front row and it was the saddest thing I've ever experienced. Standing ovations, open sobbing from the audience and cast members was enough to break any one's heart. The story is such an inspiration to all those in the arts who have ever had the courage to dream big. Even with its closing, it still sends the message to go after your dreams. If you succeed, take nothing for granted and if you put your whole heart into something that you are proud of, there is no chance you can fail.
It hurts my heart that after 102 shows, this musical is closing but I don't think this is the last we will see of this group.
And in honor of inspiration, please listen to this.
Die Vampire Die.

I had a smimilar experience at John Gallagher Jr's last performance of 'Spring Awakening.' He won the Tony for that role, and I accidentally went to his last show. It was so gripping to see the 5 ovations and his farewell speech ... all while sitting 10 feet from his family.

And you wonder why I go to shows when I come to NYC. Its experiences like those.

Hopefully you got some inspiration!
