January Light Photo Challenge | Day 9

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” – Kahlil Gibran


Electric light

I pulled this photo from the archives. I took it on a trip to NYC years ago. We didn’t see the show, but I snapped a picture of the marquee when we were walking on Broadway.

We’re surrounded by electric lights and it makes me wonder how dark it must have been at night before Ben Franklin’s remarkable discovery in 1752 and Edison’s amazing invention in 1878!

The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation. ~ Stella Adler

“P” is for phantom; as in Phantom of the Opera.

When my daughter graduated from high school she requested a trip to New York City, in lieu of a graduation party. Obviously, the trip cost more than I would’ve spent on a party, but it was something we both wanted to do together as a way to celebrate her graduation. It was also a great excuse to travel!!

One of our many experiences was seeing Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theatre on West 44th Street in midtown Manhattan. With 1,645 seats, it’s one of the largest Broadway venues and has traditionally been used for major musical productions.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece is the longest running show, which is in its 25th year. This haunting love story continues to wow audiences and is well worth the price of the ticket. If you get the chance be sure to see it!
