"Wicked" is WICKED!

I know I've seen it once already but who could pass up the chance to go again?! My mom came to visit for a couple of weeks and on her to-do list before she headed back home was to go and see "Wicked" the broadway show. Hmmmmm, I wasn't about to object. However, getting tickets was going to be quite a challenge since shows are usually sold out and tickets are soooooo expensive. But I have to tell you, craigslist is the bomb!! A day before the showing someone had something come up and they weren't able to attend the Wednesday matinee and listed their tickets on craigslist just below face value. And, to make the deal even sweeter they were dead center six rows back! I loved every minute of it and I believe my mom did too since she couldn't stop talking about it. For those of you who have seen it I'd have to say my favorite part is the "Defying Gravity" scene and I can't hold back the tears when Elphaba and Glinda sing "For Good". Seriously, if you haven't seen it make sure you add it to your bucketlist! It's a must! THANX MOM!

I LOVE that musical!! Once you see it in the orchestra section, it's so hard to go back to the other seating! I always cry at "Defying Gravity" - someday I'll have to get the soundtrack. It's awesome!

And that is so cool that you're mom is here to help you out w/ things and go do things with.

Yes-I definitely love that musical!! Glad you were able to enjoy it with your mom. I can't believe you were able to get so many pictures without your camera being confiscated. ;)

I want to see this show so bad - I just finished reading the book. It sold out here before I even knew it was playing. Jealous!!!
