Hello Dolly!

Another Sunday, another SHN matinee Broadway musical for Andrew and I.  This month it's Hello, Dolly, a musical that only came into my frame of reference during the Tony awards season last year because it featured Bette Midler.  The National tour featured another esteemed Broadway maiden but I didn't actually know who she was. 

Another #LapPlaybill
Hello, Dolly! is one of the shows that I'm glad I got tickets for through my SHN membership. I don't think that it would be something that I would be scrambling to watch if I didn't already have tickets, considering I didn't really know much about it.  From the very beginning, I knew I was going to like it, just based on the overture.

Looks fabulous even from the balcony.

One of the other ways I know whether I enjoyed a musical or not is whether I take the time to download the soundtrack after I've seen it. I did do so after seeing this because I love the classical types of Broadway musicals.  Some of the songs are a little bit cringey because they haven't aged well from a sexism standpoint, but are definitely still fun to listen to.

WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET DRESS

I love going to see musicals because it gives me a reason to dress up.  It had been raining this month and was also cold so my outfit was really more about my coat.  I still wanted to wear a dress, so I had the idea to layer a black turtleneck under this collared denim dress that's currently for sale in my Posh closet.  Unfortunately, because it was so cold, and because Andrew hates taking photos of me, you can't really see the genius of this outfit. It's understated but chic. It also looks good with my blue statement coat from J. Crew (by way of Nordstrom).  I love this denim dress for layering and I'm hoping to get a few more outfit pics like this soon!
