The promise of a new life….

Paint Your Wagon is such a joy to watch! The music, adapted story, costumes and dancing are definitely soul stirring. The California Gold Rush was an amazing time in history when people from all over the world took a leap of faith for the American Dream. This updated version of Paint Your Wagon truly explores all the different perspectives and shows how hard the journey would have been from the competition to the desperation.

Not only was I swept away by the music and love story, I left filled with hope and inspiration. The reminder that love knows no boundaries when faced with challenges. If we work together without care of background, we can create something beautiful. Wait, did I mention the music?! 🙂 I’m still humming “I Was Born Under a Wand’rin Star” and “There’s a Coach Comin’ In” a week later. “They Call the Wind Maria” was so haunting and beautiful. I could go on and on but just go see it….
