I had a very wicked mothers day and just loved it. I went to see the Broadway Musical WICKED with my daughter, friend and Aunt.
It is a very long story but my mother gave me her seat for graduation because the plans that I had to go to it had not worked out. (that is another blog topic)
Can I get a nicer mother than that? I think NOT!
I saw Wicked in San Francisco 4 years ago with my best friend and soul sister and my mom. It was fantastic and changed me in a very positive way. I learned again that things are not as they seem. I had an opinion of all the characters in the wizard of OZ as being one way. Then was given a different view.
I had remembered the main things about the musical but forgot all the story lines going on. Seeing it the second time I caught so much more detail and got even more out of the story line. The set was good. In San Francisco it was not a traveling show so there was more to the stage but this stage did not disappoint in anyway. We were in the Mezzanine and if we would have been 2 or 3 rows closer they would have been the very best seats in the house.
I know... I used to work at the theater and seen productions from every view. Depending on what the production is makes a difference in where you should sit.
There were all kinds of souvenirs available: t-shirts, books, CD's, hats, jackets, key chains, charm bracelet, pens, & necklaces. I was fortunate I picked up a Wicked t-shirt at a consignment shop awhile back. Deifying Gravity. Now they had some that said "I dream in GREEN" Cute huh?
I saw a necklace there I am going to go back and get. have never seen anything like it. I can not find it anywhere on the internet. It is more than I usually spend for jewellery but... it really very unique. The production says so much to me-- That people and events are not as they seem or reported. Elphaba, the main character, is someone I try to be like. I love her sarcasm and wit. The vocals are just amazing and all the songs ring true.
Add to this She is Green, my favorite color
.... well we are a match.
