    MiceChat Gets Wicked!

    (Pictures will follow from other people who were at the show. I think the only picture I took was of the curtain.)

    First of all, I need to thank everyone who joined us at the Pantages this afternoon to see Wicked - all 61 of us! We started planning this way back at the beginning of September. I thought the day would never get here. I have to qualify this by saying that I am a big musical fan. I love being able to share my love with others. It gave me great joy to be able to share my love for Wicked with the people I saw the show with in July 2005. I figured that we could have a lot more fun this time around. I wasn't disappointed.

    The day started off with getting the family ready to head out of the Inland Empire. The kids were going to spend some quality time with their grandparents while my husband and I were at Wicked. As always happens, we were running late. Even with having to finish getting ready at my parent's house when we dropped the kids off, we were in front of the theater in plenty of time to hand out tickets.

    Quite a few people were already waiting outside the theater. The first hug I got was from Fishbulb. Always a treat to get a hug from him. I hung out in front of the theater as I waited for everyone who still needed their tickets. I dropped off a couple pairs of tickets at Will Call for those who were stuck in traffic, then went into the theater.

    As I made my way to the door that lead me to my seat, I recognized Trent from Pink Is the New Blog. I read PITNB religiously. I told him about the group we were with since I knew that he had been to Disneyland recently. After chatting with him for a minute, I headed down the aisle to find my husband and my seat.

    Our seats were fantastic! I loved being able to see everything so closely. I was amazed to see the detail in the costumes and sets. The one touch on the costumes I loved was that everyone had a unique pair of shoes. From different colors, shapes, heights and designs.

    The performances were incredible. I had been told that Eden Espinosa and Megan Hilty were good. I loved both of their performances. Dusty and I were talking about how much better we thought this performance was over the show we saw that was part of the tour in July 2005. The cast seems to really be comfortable in their roles. Eden Espinosa blew me away with how perfectly she captured Elphaba. Megan Hilty was great as Glinda, although I thought that she matched Kendra Kessebaum's talent in the role. I was happy to see a better Fiyero this time around.

    This is going to end up being a two part trip report. My brain has decided that it needs to be restified.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: MiceChat Gets Wicked!

    I bought it but I didn't l;isten to it cuz I wanted to relive the live version in my mind for now. I'll always have great memories of this show!




    It was also fun after the show when everyone was picking out shirts and stuff. The pink Popular shirt that D Mom bought was my favorite. I also gotta say ......"that is one hot son she's got" You'd better watch out Dmom ..I think you are in for it!

    Re: MiceChat Gets Wicked!

    I just got home from seeing wicked. It was great. Longer than I thought, but very good.

    I didn't buy anything from the theater, because I've seen it all online. I liked the $50.00 book, but I left it.

    It was a wonderful show...

    edited to add. I just found he same book online for $26.40. I'm really glad I didn't buy it there now... It will be here on wed with free shipping..>

    I am so thrilled you all had a wonderful time! While I am sad that I couldn't be there with you it makes my heart happy that so many of you were enjoying the magic of theatre together. Sounds cheesy - but I think those of you who were there will understand.

    Re: MiceChat Gets Wicked!

    I didn't bring a camera. I knew there was no pictures aloud in the seating area. Before the show started there were a few flashes going off, but the ushers kept telling people to stop, then they made an announcement. Once the show started I didn't see any more flashes going off. I was happy people respected the rules.
