    Just saw WICKED at the Pantages in Hollywood!!!

    For those of you who have raved about Wicked in these past months...I just had to tell you that you were right on!!!!! I saw it tonight at the Pantages in Hollywood and I was blown away. It is my new 2nd favorite (Phantom will always hold top billing!) musical performance EVER! The 2 leads had gorgeous voices and the Glinda (GALinda! ) was hysterical. The actors were all amazing. Anyone who has the good fortune to have tickets for this performance....and have not seen it yet....you will LOVE it!!!!!!

    Thanks for all of the high recommendations everyone!!!

    Good for you, Janine! Good for you!

    I am so glad you had a wonderful time. It brings back great memories of our MC day...can it really be more than three months ago? Kat and I listen to the soundtrack in the car all the time.

    Good for you!

    (Side note...two LA radio stations where I used to work were located basically on either side of the Pantages. Ironically, neither is in Hollywood any more...OFF TOPIC)

    Good for you!

    I just saw "Wicked" last Thursday - (bought my 6 tickets in November!) - and we thoroughly enjoyed it; so glad to hear that you had a great time too.

    I thought that the cast was superb; Eden Espinosa as Elphaba - the 'Green Girl' - really blew me away - what an amazing voice!

    This was Post# 666 for me; a salute to my spell-casting 'sisters' over at "Wicked" ?

    Hope I'm not intruding on your space, Janine...but I was inspired to bring back a couple of pics from our matinee, which I hope will brighten your thread.

    The "Oz Dust Botique" souvenir stand...






    Great show, great memories...glad once again for you, Janine.

    But is it "good for me", Barry? haha!

    I cannot wait to buy the soundtrack! I may just order it online from my niece's computer here!!!! It was amazing. I want to see it again and hope it hits Seattle so I can take my daughter!!!

    I was a TOTAL tourist too, taking photos of several of the stars on the walk of fame. ha! Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber being one of them! We didn't see a ton of them, as we walked to an amazing Italian place for dinner that wasn't too far away. REALLY amazing gnocchi (again, of topic). Anyway------WICKED is awesome, awesome!!!!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! I did get a few photos inside, but, it was sunny out and the ones outside, I am afraid, won't be so great. It was the 8 pm showing, so, we weren't able to get a lot of good outside shots!!

    You're the best, Barry!

    I am VERY lucky! I bought our tickets only 3 weeks ago!!! VERY LUCKY!

    And, it was Eden Espinosa as Elphaba and she WAS an amazing songbird!

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Amen on that one!!!!!!!!!! I hope it comes to Seattle so that I can see it again!

    I SO need that t-shirt with DEFY GRAVITY on it. I wanted to buy it last night, but, after the play it was pure chaos in there, so, I am looking online at it. I bought the refrigerator magnet for my niece and I, and hung that when I returned to Seattle tonight. Hard to believe I was just leaving Wicked last night at this time, and now I am back home, and going to work tomorrow. This sucks! ha! But, at least I got to go to DL, saw Wicked and also the Pageant of the Masters in the last 6 days in So. Cal.

    I said to my niece last night, "Lisa said I'd love it! She was right!!!" It was amazing. I am looking at the website for more stuff. I need that defy gravity t-shirt!

    Re: Just saw WICKED at the Pantages in Hollywood!!!

    Thanks for your review Janine, and thanks for posting those shots again Barry. I'm taking my daughter to see it on a Daddy/Daughter date this Thursday, and my daughter was beside herself when I told her. She has the soundtrack memorized and has been singing Wicked songs 24/7 for the past couple of months. I think we have decent seats, but we're not sitting in the $150+ section as that seemed a bit pricey to me. We're both looking forward to it, and I'll post here again when we get back.
