Hey blog stalkers :) So anyone that knows me can tell you that I am a HUGE musical buff!!!! If you have an extra ticket to a musical, heck YES I'm coming along :) Though I have seen a few Broadway musicals, such as The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, my favorite by far has always been Wicked!!! I first saw this INCREDIBLE musical when I was 12 at a theater about an hour from where I live and from the first song, I was hooked! The musical tells the back story of the Wizard of Oz and what really happened before Dorthy dropped in!!! Glinda and Elphaba (The wicked witch) are best friends, the wizard is really evil, and you find out who all the other major characters all used to be :) This musical will change your whole perspective on the movie and you will never watch it the same way again!!!
A couple of weeks ago, a few days before we left for NYC, my Dad told me that after school he was taking me on a special date and I needed to wear a dress, but he would tell me nothing more. I was VERY suspicious but he wouldn't budge an inch...the date location would remain a secret. So the whole day at school I was racking my brain, trying to think of places my dad would take me. I thought about going to go see Wicked, but I thought it would be to pricey.
So I got home and got all dressed up and off we went! I feel bad for dad because I kept asking where we were going over, and over, and over........and over again :) I never knew my dad was THAT good at keeping secrets :) Anyway, after driving for an hour or two, we ate dinner and went driving again. He told me were were getting close but he STILL wouldn't tell me where he was taking me!!! Once we got there, I couldn't tell exactly where we were. My dad drove up to a lady in the parking lot and asked where the parking for Wicked was. At that point, I had to bite my lip so I didn't scream and make the lady pee on herself :) As soon as we drove away, I started screaming and jumping up and down (well, as best as you can jump in a car!) and gave dad a HUGE hug :) We took some pics outside of the building:
Once I got in, I got to get an ADORABLE tee shirt with Elphaba on it and i <3 it so much!!! :) Once it got started though...I can't even explain how incredibly into it I got!!! I don't know why, but Wicked is one of those things, like Harry Potter, that if you start me talking about it, I will be going on about it for hours!!! I am a complete freak about it!!! I have 3 shirts, a signed playbill, earrings, AND a book filled with behind the scenes secrets about the story :) I would SO encourage you to look up songs from Wicked on YouTube because it is the best story I have ever heard...EVER!!!! :) Thank you guys for letting my ramble on and on about this...can you tell I'm in love??? :) I hope you enjoyed this post and I will talk to y'all later ;)
Lots of love,
