Oh my goodness! Wicked is amazing!

Greg and his mom saw this show when they took a little trip to Toronto once. He said he thought we'd like it, so when someone in the ward offered to go get tickets for everyone who wanted to buy some (so we could get presale tickets and at at group rate) I jumped on it. As it turned out, Greg was out of town so... Reagan and I went to see it on Wednesday night. (Jillie got to go to it earlier this month with her school choir.) We all loved, loved it. The cast was terrific. It's hard to believe that the original Broadway cast could've done better than this one. I loved seeing how the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and Scarecrow came to be. I love all the behind the scenes and hints at the Wizard of Oz- which I will never look at the same. I laughed and laughed during "Popular". I was in awe as Elphaba sang, "No Good Deed". I was in tears as the 2 "witches" sang the "For Good". I loved it so much I went out and bought the book today! Somehow, I will find time to read it because it is so intriguing to me.

Go see it if you get the chance!
