Getting to know you

This past Saturday, my mom took us to see The King and I at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre. I actually went into the theater not knowing what this musical was about, as opposed to all the other musicals we’ve seen.



The Hollywood Pantages Theatre is one of my favorite places to be; the outside looks rather plain but walking into the lobby feels like walking into a whole new world. The details of the sculptures and even the walls so intricate – it’s breathtaking and beyond beautiful. Even the chandeliers manage to take your breath away.

The King and I was a great show. Everyone had such a fine performance. The musical bordered towards the comedic side and it was such a breath of fresh air from all the more serious shows I’ve seen. Fun fact: this musical is actually based on a true story!

After the show ended, my parents took us to Palms Restaurant down Hollywood Boulevard. It’s a hole-in-the-wall yet rather well-known Thai restaurant (how fitting since the musical was based on the life of a Thai king?!) and their prices are quite decent. The food was really good as well!




I forgot what these were called but these are bananas wrapped in egg roll wrapper, fried and topped with the good, sweet stuff.

I’m glad my mom takes the family to events like these. The theater world is rather amazing.

    I am not sure how I feel about the fried bananas – I think I would need to do a taste test. I love the theatre! The King and I was one of my fave movies, it is on Netflix right now, which I very exciting!

    The last musicals I watched were Matilda and An American in Paris on Broadway last summer! I loved Matilda SO much. Those fried banana thingies look sooo delicious :3 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

    I remember watching the film when I was very young but I didn't understand anything, ha. I love going to the theatre, I went to one last weekend here and it's not usually something I'd go to in terms of genre but it's always so exciting seeing people perform in real life in front of an audience!

    OMG that food looks delicious! I've never seen a live musical, hopefully I'll get a chance to do that one day!
