There is no day but today. We need to stop cursing past gun restrictions that could have prevented this tragedy. We need to act today. We need to speak out against the sale of automatic rifles today. We need to make our schools safe again today.
I left the theatre in a daze to what I had just witnessed. The show left me a fan of Broadway, a fan of the actors, and a huge fan of “Rent.”
When the lights came up at the end of Broadway Atlanta’s live musical production of “The Lion King” at the Fox Theatre (running through Jan. 28) tears were streaming down my face.
Not only did I have the chance to go the theater with my dad, but I was able to witness a show that was very creative dance-wise, with a storyline that some teens could relate to. The show hadn’t even started when I could already see it was a great way to kick off the holiday season.
It reminded me how beautiful and united we can be, not only Americans but as a human race when it comes to being emotionally connected to similar struggles.
The sun was raging. Anger was palpable, and drawl-y southern accents were slow and thick. I knew it was going to be an experience. This is what I saw.
While many in support of Trump showed up for the ticketed event held at the Fox Theatre, across the street stood a conglomeration of protesters, all of whom had something to say to Trump and his supporters.
“The Book of Mormon” is definitely a delight and is the best piece of satire I’ve seen in awhile. It also gives teens a reason to return to the theater and break the stigma that youth cannot appreciate musicals.
