Growing up, Larson had several musical influences that shaped his specific music taste including Kurt Cobain, Liz Phair, Prince, Leonard Bernstein, and Stephen Sondheim.

The melodies in The Magic Flute always linger on hours after I have listened to them. What is more, the conductor of the version I listened to, Riccardo Muti and the Wiener Philharmoniker excellently executed performance of this beautiful,masterful work. Lastly, The Magic Flute contains one of my favourite arias ever written because of how dramatic it is but more importantly how technically demanding it is and it is none other than the famous Queen of the Night aria (translated to English), ‘Hell’s Vengeance Boils In My Heart’ and specifically the version sung by Edita

On March 28th, I had the pleasure of attending the Broadway show called “The Play That Goes Wrong,” located at the Lycuem Theatre on 149 West 45th Street. On this particular Tuesday evening, I just had a vibe that something wrong was going to happen in this play – shockingly. I did believe this play will truly be memorable judging by the fun quirk of the show’s name. After watching the performance for about two hours, I can conclude that this play went beyond my expectation as its set disasters and characters amusingly caught the attention of me and the rest of the audience. Before the beginning of “The Play That Goes Wrong,” I’ve noticed that actors and crew members were doing last minute touch ups with the stage and wandering around the aisles, looking for their “dog.” Initially, I was very confused about what was going on and what “dog” they were referring to.
