    Wicked!!!!!!!!!

    I know a lot of you have seen Wicked and I am about to see it for the first time in L.A. on July 29. I am SOOOOOO excited! (I also thought there was a thread for this, but, can't find it.)

    What do you love about it? Tell me...without telling me TOO much! ha! I am so looking forward to it as it's not coming to Seattle anytime soon and I am going to L.A. and to DL, and staying with my niece in Long Beach. She and I are seeing the play together!

    if you have read the book...it's nothing like the book.

    I liked the comedy parts the most. It was a very lighthearted and fun show.

    Re: Wicked!!!!!!!!!

    Here's why Wicked blew me away:

    Despite having listened to the original cast recording literally hundreds of times, it turned out that I really didn't know the STORY of Wicked at all from listening to the CD. I was astounded at the clever story and all of the twists and turns of the plot. And the ending left me shocked, laughing and crying all at once.

    You'll have a blast!

    BTW I got in BIG TROUBLE at the MiceChat Meet on the Sunday following the MiceChat Wicked trip for spilling the beans on the plot twists to someone who hadn't seen it yet. I know better than to do that again!

    I have not read the book. I owned it and started it but couldn't get into it. Then our dear departed dog Mickey decided to rip it to shreds one day which sort of settled the matter!

    awe, I loved the play. The book was ...ummm...odd....the play does not stay true to the book at all...or very slightly may be a better way to put it.

    I thought both were great, but as was stated earlier, the play bears little resemblance. Both were great in different ways IMHO.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I just saw it last night. It was absolutely AMAZING! I have seen many plays in my lifetime, but this is definately the best! I will do just about anything to see it again before it goes!

    That's a sparkling endorsement!! I've seen many as well and to date Les Mis and Phantom are my two favorite musicals. I cannot wait to see Wicked in L.A. !!!!

    We are also going to the "Pageant of the Masters" in Laguna Beach, which I hear is also outstanding! What a fun week I have planned!

    Re: Wicked!!!!!!!!!

    the play was wonderful. I have seen a few, but they are hard to compare, because they are so different.

    My top three favorites are (not in any particular order)
    cats
    wicked
    lion king
