the wonderful world of WICKED!!!

saturday night was a fulfillment of a dream let me tell you!! what an amazing show! we had super-great seats right on the isle so i didn't have to worry about anyones head being in my way! (being short has it's disadvantages!) the stage design was larger than life with this HUGE dragon hanging over the stage. his head moved, blew smoke and his eyes glowed red. and the singing was outstanding! those people can really belt it out! we laughed, i cried and i got goosebumps. even my DH who is a man of few words said he loved it. if you ever have the chance to see it, GO!

because the show is a sell out the place where it is being held kept back 20 tickets for each night. and if you show up 2 hours before curtain you can put your name in a lottery to be able to buy 2 orchestra seats for $25 each. i would really like to have big c go to see it. so we are going to put our name in the lottery and see what happens. good thing it's not too far from home!

i just keep thinking about it. since the soundtrack is in my car i have been going over it in my mind too. i'm even dreaming about it. i can see how people can get obsessed with things so easily!

There is very little that is better than a Broadway show. I'm glad you had fun. And just think, It's even better when it's in New York.

"Big Country" was playing on your playlist, I hated to leave the page -- one of my favorite songs ever. It's the top ten for sure.

anyway, i posted the iron chef date on my blog and didn't want you to miss the post. June 1st, if you don't make my way before the post slides down into archive oblivion.
