Sunday, November 15
{319/365} In 2003 I heard of a new Broadway show, Wicked. I knew little about the show aside from the fact that Stephen Schwartz wrote the music...and that was enough for me. I bought tickets during previews (for my Mom's birthday), taking a chance that a show about the "early years" of Glinda and the Wicked Witch would be worthy of the high ticket price. I'm certainly a "seasoned" theatre goer and about 10 minutes into it, listening to the voices of Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth, I knew the show would be successful. I was blown away! As I left with a giant smile on my face (and knowing full well I would have to take my husband to see this amazing show), I decided to get my then three year old a "Wicked" shirt, way too big for her tiny body. For years I longed for the day I could take Emily. The day when she could appreciate the coolenss of this show. Today was that day! Not only did she fit into that shirt perfectly (no longer sold so I suppose it's a collectors item), she was completely blown away...just like her Mom. :)

I cannot believe you saw Idina and Kristin! I am so jealous!! I saw Wicked twice . . . once with Dave for our anniversary, and then I HAD TO take the girls! I could have seen it dozen of times!! I'm not sure if I told you, but when she sang Defying Gravity, and raises above the stage, I had goose bumps and tears in my eyes! When there was then a break before the Second Act, Dave looked at me shocked that I was all misty! It really got to me! Amazing musical!
