I thought it would be best to make this a separate post, because it has a completely different mood to it. Yesterday, which will actually be two days ago when I post this because it’s almost midnight (so Saturday night), I went to see Wicked. I believe the title of this post says it all. I have wanted to see it for so long, and my aunt, through connections, was able to gets tickets when they were on special sale, so she managed to get center stage seats, row 26. The stage wasn’t itty bitty like other times I’ve seen Broadway shows, it was easy to see and right in front of me. I was anticipating going for so long, and I finally got to see it! I cannot even describe how amazing it is, words cannot describe how amazing it is. In order to understand the amazing-ness of it, you’d…you’d have to be able to feel what I feel, or go see it yourself. Seeing it yourself would probably be easier. It was so…it was hilarious, yet tragic and painful, yet suspenseful, yet incredibly surprising. I hated characters at first, then loved them, then hated them again, and felt for them by the end. I’d have to say it’s probably taken over as my favorite musical, and I really enjoyed Les Mis. I also enjoyed the Lion King, but it wasn’t on this level, and the Phantom I saw was probably too Vegas-fied for me to be able to compare it. I would love to see Wicked again to see what a different cast brings to it, like if Galinda/Glinda (the Ga is silent) is always so…yeah.
