wishing i was here:
with these fabulous people.
four years ago, (has it really been that long??) i lived in southern connecticut...just 45 minutes north of the big apple. i became a broadway addict, seeing 11 shows in a short 4 months. the very last show i saw...just three days before i left the east coast... was wicked.
one word to describe the experience:
triple hop-scotch wow.
while every show had its marvelous moments (lion king = costumes, 42nd street = dancing, beauty & the beast = the sets, etc), wicked was incredible in every single way. the music. the dancing. the costumes. the sets. the story-line. idina menzel's voice was breath-taking. kristin chenoweth was adorably annoying.
yes, i saw the original cast.
yes, it was amazing.
yes, i am bragging a bit.
after seeing the show, i certainly was changed for good.
so, tonight i will be wallowing in jealousy...thinking of my lovely loved ones being entertained to the maximum degree by the wizard of oz' greatest parallel musical.
p.s. i've caught word that wicked is coming to utah? true?? if any one knows details, i'm all ears. also, i've heard that it travels to san fran now and again...anyone know details about that (where, price, etc?)? i'm determined to see it again before i die...or before it dies (whichever comes first).
