I told you we went to watch a musical called Dracula on Saturday in Paris. The whole week end was perfect, this thing wasn’t.

The most famous musicals we had in Lebanon were in the 60’s and 70’s. They were created by two brothers, Assi and Mansour Rahbani. Their songs were with lyrics coming from poems they wrote, the music was catchy and the dances were captivating. It was all about the story and how to present it to the public. A lot of people tried to do musicals, even the sons of these two artists, but the results were never the same.

In the play we saw on Saturday, well I can assure you it was no where near that. The set was amazing, the choreographies were captivating, but that was it. The story was not understandable (maybe they are assuming you’ve read the book before you go watch the play) and the songs did not help you understand it either (the lyrics were very cheesy). Even the heroes you could not feel attached to them. All I know is that I left the theater thinking “what happened at the end?”, and I almost regretted watching it if it wasn’t for the nice dances and music. Maybe the play initially is intended for young viewers? I don’t know.

Something I definitely don’t regret doing is having this big meat portion for lunch yesterday. Thanks sis for the recipes book and thanks Francois for applying it šŸ™‚


See you tomorrow!
