Finally, I get to feel like a person who knows how to dress for occasions only by going to the most over-the-top musical on Earth in one of the most coveted cities in the country.

No cape casualties this time. Only a very cautious seat neighbor who handed me the extra fabric that happened to land on her arm rest, ever. so. gently. and saying repeatedly I JUST DONT WANT TO MESS IT UP I JUST DONT WANT TO MESS IT UP. This is the effect that capes have on people. You are suddenly royalty. Embrace that shit. It’s awesome.
