My friend Cindy Ford came to visit again this week. While I was teaching for my first day, Nate and Cindy went and got tickets for the show, Wicked. It is about a 20 minute walk away from our house down in Victoria. We had really good seats too!
I have wanted to see this show for about 7 years. I bought the soundtrack online my Freshman year at BYU and loved the music, but had never seen the actual play. I can't believe I waited this long! It was so amazing, everything about it. I think that I loved it because of its connection with The Wizard of Oz. I love that show and I thought Wicked was so neat because it filled in the whys and hows of all of elements of The Wizard of Oz. I thought that who ever wrote the Wicked script was so creative to think of a plot that fit so well together with the sequel! Watching it made me feel guility for having such negative feelings toward The Wicked Witch, because it shows a new side of her, a nice side, that you didn't know existed. She is actually a really good person. Who knew? :)
I want to see it again! If you haven't seen this show, you need to go!
