Wicked the Musical is Amazing

I had heard good reports of the musical Wicked. But I hadn't really been dying to see it, to be honest. I thought it would be good, and I did want to see it. But my level of interest wasn't as high as it was in seeing Lion King, or Les Mis, or Chicago.

I have to say, it belongs in that same group. It's an incredible show. If you're going to be in NYC, stop by the theatre on 51st Street, because 2.5 hours before every show you can register for a lottery. The prize is front row tickets for $25. I didn't do that, mine were presents, and man were they great presents.

The show features incredible music, such a clever story, and fantastic performances. The show is touring and coming to Philadelphia in July. But honestly the performances of the people in NYC were so excellent, if you can see it there, you should. Especially Elphaba (the "wicked" witch), and Glinda the Good Witch. They were amazing performers.

I can't emphasis just how clever the story is, if you're at all familiar with the Wizard of Oz, you'll find the twists and turns of this "retelling" of the main characters' histories fascinating and fun.

yes, everybody is raving about that show...I am hoping to see it tomorrow while in the city. However, I will say that even if you can't see it, buying the soundtrack is definitely worthwhile. if you want to be inspired and listen to Idina Menzel (Elphaba) belt her face off, then buy it.

I am so glad we talked about this...

and the lead on broadway now is even better than idina (who is excellent too!)
