Wicked 2012


I {HEART} musicals.

In October, I had an opportunity to see Broadway’s Wicked at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, for the second time.  (I saw it last time it was in town, in 2009). Having seen it once before, I had a better idea of the storyline of the play.

Actually, I would say seeing it the second time was better than the first because you’re not so shocked by the twists and the turns that arise throughout the show.  I had forgotten many of the twists, but those that I remembered made MUCH MORE SENSE the second time around!  I caught on better to the jokes and made better connections to how it coincides with The Wizard of Oz.

This year it was myself, Alex, Brandi and Sue who went to see it.  We had a fifth ticket, that never got used but was taken over by a random stranger….it still ticks Brandi off…but that’s a story for another day!  Well, Brandi and the rest of us, because the lady showed up partway through the show, stepped on all our toes and then left before intermission started and stomped on our toes leaving too.  We’re slightly bitter!

As with my previous experience seeing Wicked and when my family saw Mary Poppins last year, I was aware of the scare tactics put in place by the Paramount and cast about taking photographs during the show.  I respected their wishes and sat on my hands so I wouldn’t be tempted to click away.  With that being said, I didn’t get any photos during the show, so you’ll have to stick with the before shots.


Happy Monday, everyone!

    Wait…. You’ve seen Wicked twice now?!?! Unfair… I haven’t even seen it once yet.
    Well, I did read the book. Does that count?
