While I was in San Diego I also got to see a great new musical called Come Fall in Love! It’s always exciting to see an original musical, and this one was incredible!! I saw the second preview and it’s so so so good! It’s based on the super popular DDLJ Bollywood film, but I’d never seen that so the whole thing was new to me. The set was incredible, I loved the songs and the cast- I can’t wait to see it again. I’m not sure what the plans are, but I feel like this will have a long life! I wish I could see it again tonight!!
I had a GREAT time at the sandiegozoo !! The animals were so sweet, and we had an incredible guide who showed us many of the secrets of the zoo! I went there once before when I was 4 years old, but I won’t wait so long to return. I can’t begin to figure out who my favorite animal was- there are so many contenders!
