Run, don't walk

Seeing live theater is something so fantastic and wonderful in itself. And then, on top of that, to see a Broadway play, well that just blows the roof off.

For Valentines day, Matt bought me tickets to go see Wicked at the Pantages Theater. Friday night was the night, as I am still high of the whole thing.

We had the most incredible seats, Orchestra, row M. There wasn't a better seat in the whole house.

In case you're not familiar with the story, the website sums it up: "Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years."

This production was absolutely amazing and fantastic and hilarious and touching and full of twists and turns. I think I watched the whole thing with a big smile plastered on my face. When the intermission came, Matt and I didn't even get out of our seats.

I highly recommend that if you have the opportunity, that you go see this production. Not only does it have an amazing cast, including Carol Cane (Taxi, Scrooged.)

But the stand out performance for both Matt and I was by far, Megan Hilty. She played the character of "Glinda" and I can honestly say, she deserves a Tony for her performance. She was hilarious and the crowd ate it up.

Wonderful cast, wonderful story and wonderful music.

Three wonderfuls equals WICKED!
