... No Me Puedo Levantar, the name of a musical we went to see with Carlitos yesterday. A big success in Madrid, running for three continuous years with all performances being sold out. Therefore, I was expecting something extraordinary, something so spectacular that it would left me in awe. Well, maybe because I saw many other musicals, I found the storyline too "inspired" by RENT, the voices being a little weaker and sometimes lost in the music and the acting amateurish. On the other hand, I liked a lot the classic songs by Mecano (obviously), the inspired scenography and the atmosphere in the theatre. Big thanks to the birthday boy who let me to join him.
