Mama Mia in Saint Louis




My sister, Rhea and I got back Sunday night from our trip to Saint Louis.  It was just one of those self indulgent sisters trips.  We have not had one in quite some time.  With her living in CO it is hard for us to get together.  But, we made ourselves plan this trip and we stuck to the plans.  We love Mama Mia movie and we knew it was based on the broadway show-so we hunted the traveling show down and chose the one in Saint Louis because the date fit our schedule and the place sounded interesting.

Saint Louis proved to be very interesting.  We found the city to be so clean and pristine.  The architecture of all the buildings was fascinating.  This city is rich in history and culture.  The people were so friendly every where we went.  Going to see the Arch was an awesome experience.  We got to ride these tiny little space ship looking things to go to the top of the arch and view the city.  Although I am not fond of heights, I loved it and felt totally safe!



Mama Mia was my first ever Broadway show and I loved it.  It was surreal to me and I decided the movie had it right on compared to the show.  Rhea and I want to be Mama Mia groupies-haha!
I have to say that half the fun of the show was the getting all dressed up.  It was fun trying to get all glamed up together.  You should have seen the hotel room after we got ready!  Here we are at the Fox Theater.
All in all, we had the best time, took lots of photos which you can view on my Flickr site! We met some wonderful people and made great memories.  Can't wait until our next adventure.  I believe we are taking my mother to see the Ellen show.  Mama loves Ellen and so do we......

Such fun! Good for you, seeing your first Broadway show, that's fantastic. The two of you do look fabulous. I loved the movie too, Abba takes me back to college and my disco queen days, what's not to love?
