I can't believe I am just now getting around to telling you all my most exciting news of the week! So you know a while back I posted that Wicked was at the Fox Theatre and I really, really wanted to go. Well this month my travel schedule has been crazy busy and this week was the one and only week I would be in town while the show was in Atlanta. I never ordered my tickets and figured that I would just have to wait until next time. But on Wednesday my fab friend Taylor, who knew how badly I wanted to go, called and told me that she snagged us 2 tickets for that night! I was beyond excited and left straight from work on Wednesday to drive to Atlanta, which is less than an hour away.
**the pictures aren't ultra-clear (we were having some technical difficulty) and don't mind me ... I wasn't looking too spiffy but I didn't have much notice :)
Let me just tell you. The show was soooo unbelievably good. I was telling Taylor afterwards, it absolutely amazes me how talented the actors and actresses are! Not only can they sing (which is an amazing talent in and of itself) but they can act, dance, and are gorgeous on top of everything else! I mean couldn't I have gotten a tiny piece of the "talented pie" ... just a sliver would have been fine. One thing that you may want to know about me is that I LOVE to sing but, unfortunately, I can't. At all. Anyone that knows me can testify. But anyways, the show was phenomenal and I would go see it again in a heartbeat. It was funny and sad and sweet! After talking after the show there were so many things that I noticed but didn't completely process until later. Like, if you have seen it, the significance the scarecrow and the tin-man played.
Two days later and I am still singing its praises. Literally. My favorite musical number was a duet with Glenda and Elphaba called "For Good" - although "Popular" ran a close race! I will definitely be asking for the soundtrack for Christmas!
