Hello, Hello, Ding Dong

Hello! It’s been so long that I feel like I have to introduce myself all over again to you all. My name is Krystal and I am a west coast girl who belongs in New York City. Well be exact working on the great white way Broadway. I love everything about the performing arts, music, and the stage! I started this blog shortly after college on a dare of sorts from my dear friend Allyson (which you can read all about on my very 1st post). It has been a lot of fun sharing my view, reviews, insider gossip, and experiences as a theatre blogger. I recently took some time off from blogging because I had a bit of writers block. Even though I stopped writing I did not give up on my love of theatre. I saw a few productions here and there but now that 2012 is here I am ready to get back into the theatre world and share my experiences with you all again. Thank you so much for the past 3 years and promise you even more years of blogging to come!

Somewhere Only We Know

GLEE LIVE ended with a KISS :)
Sadly the 2011 GLEE LIVE tour has come to an end. But they finally gave the fans what they wanted KLAINE & Britanna. But not only do they lock lips Chris aka Kurt wrote a love poem for Blaine.

Here is the poem:

Blaine Warbler Anderson,
I have never loved another.
Except for last year when I was in love with my stepbrother.
I admire you almost as much as
I admire the late Alexander McQueen
You're exquisite when you sing.

How I've missed our impromptu performances
In the Dalton academy
halls, the rooms, the bleachers.
Where the hell were all the teachers.

We've seen everything eye to eye,
All the pain, all the hurt
At least we did until my last growth spurt

We've shared so many intimate moments
Memories that shine in glitter
Just the two of us,
Facebook, Myspace,Tumbr, and Twitter.

Since we've met it's been absolute heaven:
For your Emmy consideration 2011.

But through all the glory, the
scary, and the hype,
I swear to god I'm going to punch the next person who
calls me a stereotype.
I'm so thankful to have found a partner as talented as me
And forever we shall be, unless the writers change things in season three.
"somewhere only we know"-song performed on GLEE
