Last night Heather and I went to see the show “Wicked” last night. It was the first time in years we had been to see a Broadway show, but it was very good. It is the prequil to the Wizard of Oz. Wicked tells the story of how Elphaba the green skinned little girl became the Wicked Witch of the West.
She met Glinda in school and they became friends, it tells the story of how the Scarecrow, Tinman and Cowardly Lion came to be as well. The second act tells the story of the movie, from her point of view so you get that Back to the Future II feeling, where you get to see what was happening behind the scenes. The comedy was great, cute and quick, with plenty of references to the movie.
Nessarose: What is in this punch?
Boq: Lemons, and berries, and pears.
Nessarose: Oh, My.
If it comes to your town it is worth the time.
