We (Jonas & Jeanette:) had an inspiring trip to England recently. Among our stops was a week in London's West End where we caught up with our dear friend and one of the original members of ABRA Cadabra (Matthew Engst), who was working on the musical (& Juliet) with legendary pop producer Max Martin. We were thrilled to see this amazing musical as well as get a back stage tour of the magestic Shaftesbury Theatre. (see some pics from our London trip under the Back Stage Moments section below). We also had some fun doing some costume shopping in London's SOHO district, including a brand new costume for our lead performer and dancers in The Rocket Man (pictured below)
