AIDA is actually my all time favorite even though I love RENT too. Last time I saw it was I think in 2003. I saw it twice in that same year in New York. The first time I saw it was with the original cast and the second time was with a new cast with Tony Braxton. The original cast was the best. My favorite song is the letter. Every now and then I start singing it or writing it down. AIDA was my first musical and it will always be close to me.
