Wicked

Ever wondered why the wicked witch is the way she is and really how in the world does water kill her?  Well, wonder no more and Wicked will tell all 🙂  One can’t go to NYC, even if it’s for work and not catch a musical on Broadway.  So that’s what Erv, Daryl and I did the other night.

We actually braved the cold and walked something like 5 blocks to get to the Gershwin Theatre and it was worth it 🙂  As it already is, Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite stories of all time and “The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz” just gave it more depth to excite my own creative impluses.

Reminded me why at the core of my heart, despite the advances in technology, I simply love live performances.  There’s something about watching people sing. dance or act in front of your very eyes that can wake your soul.  Made me miss being a theater practitioner … what would I give to be designing lighting or managing a stage again?  I’m not quite sure if I have an answer to that but I do know I was glad to have shared it with Erv and Daryl.

They were the perfect guys to share a musical experience with.  Both understood the beauty of it and once out of the theatre, could relate to the fact that I felt like dancing and singing 🙂

  1. Also, I recently saw Jersey Boys [ 4 stars ] and catching Cats again this March here and Mary Poppins is also coming to Melbourne in July!!!
    What I really want to catch is Legally Blonde the Musical, have any of you seen it yet?

  2. Nope, not yet. Is Legally Blonde going to Melbourne too? Why can’t we can’t musicals coming to Singapore too?

  3. I want Legally Blonde to come to Melbourne not sure if its coming yet but I saw snippets of some silly reality show on MTV about looking for the next Elle Woods.
