I’m completely over the whole flash mob thing, but I am deathly afraid that this will end up happening at my wedding as well…especially because of all of my musical theatre, junky friends. Not that I’m getting married soon, but this is definitely a possibility lol. I saw this video and wasn’t going to share it originally, but then I heard some of the male voices and began to fall in love with it.
Thernardier and his wife were pretty weak which was disappointing, but the girl in the black dress sounded amazing. The blond girl in the beginning was really weak as well. There is a shorter girl that had an ok voice, but you don’t actually get to see her, except when she is finishing. The majority of the men in this video had great voices. I can almost guarantee this is probably a wedding from a bunch of people who either go to karaoke or went to musical theatre school and remained friends. My freshman year of college I went to Point Park College, which is now Point Park University which is known for dance and musical theatre. This is actually sort of what lunch was like.
Whenever a new show would come out or someone would start singing a melody to themselves, a lot of other people would join in. During finals or mid terms, you’d hear everyone practicing in their rooms or in the halls until at least 3 or 4 in the morning. I almost miss being able to hear really amazing voices all day and being able to walk into any room, say I have a song stuck in my head and have at least one or two people belt it out perfectly and on tune. It was actually kind of fun. Later this month a few of us are getting together in NYC to go see a couple of shows as well. I haven’t actually seen some of these people since 1999 and the early 2000’s so it’ll be a lot of fun to get together again. We’re also having another meetup in the West End in London for a couple of us that moved out there. Anyways, I am completely afraid this will end up happening at my wedding, and if it doesn’t, I’ll probably be even more pissed that it didn’t.
