There’s something you don’t know about The Nerd.
My man LOVES him some Broadway musicals. One of the first times I ever rode with him in his car, he belted out the lyrics to songs from Wicked.
He even refused to go to my brother’s wedding because he had tickets the same night to Monty Python’s Spamalot. Yeah, try explaining to your family that your new boyfriend preferred to watch singing men in tights instead of meeting them. Fun.
But you know what? We’ve never seen a musical together.
Until last night.
To say that we enjoyed the show would be an understatement.
The set was gorgeous. And set changes were seamless.
Cathy Rigby was fantastic as Peter Pan. She flew around the stage, sprinkling silver fairy dust in her wake. Her aerobatics were incredible and it seemed like she was born to fly.
Tiger Lily was gorgeous and an amazing dancer. The scenes with her tribe were some of my favorite parts of the show.
But the highlight of the night was Captain Hook and his band of pirates. He was hilarious and the perfect character. I have never seen Hook played like that before. And it was marvelous.

You can see Peter Pan at the Music Hall at Fair Park from July 10-22. Get more info on tickets here.
Also, be sure to check out the amazing line-up of shows to come at Dallas Summer Musicals! Do you think I should take The Nerd to see Wicked?
The best thing about this show is that is perfect for a family night out. It made a great date night with my hubby, but I would have had just as much fun with my niece and nephew.
There aren’t many musicals I’d feel comfortable bringing a child to see, but this is definitely one of them.
It was be the perfect getaway on a summer night.
