Sometimes, Even the Ugly Green Girl Gets the Guy

No, I'm not green. And, I'm talking about "The Guy."

I'm talking about this........



Yesterday, I saw Wicked for the first time. IT. WAS. PHENOMENAL.

I've always wanted to see it, but never have been able to....... it was definitely worth the wait. My step-sister and I went (it was her Christmas present). To be honest, I wasn't as thrilled and hyped as she was. I've always wanted to see it, but have been feeling blah and not that excited with anything, lately, lol.

However, as soon as the curtain was raised, I was transported to the magical land of Oz. I was glued for three hours. It was just wonderful.

I'll try not to give anything away, if you haven't already seen it. If you haven't....... GO!!!


After seeing this, I like the Wicked Witch of the West. Her sister, Nessa Rose, (aka the Wicked Witch of the East who had the house dropped on her)..... not necessarily likeable, by the end.

 





"Defying Gravity"........ breathtaking song.




Sadly, Kristin Chenowith and Idina Menzel were not a part of the cast that I saw. Would have been friggin awesome to see them in those roles. However, the ladies we saw were really great.








I will never be able to watch The Wizard of Oz the same, again. Luckily, without giving too much away, the stories are parallel enough that I feel I can wrap them both up and still enjoy both, lol.

Seriously, it's an amazing play.

And, one of my favorite parts was..........

Even the Ugly Green Girl Got the Guy!!!!
