Wicked

Yup, that's me holding our tickets to Wicked. Only one word to describe the musical: awesomely wicked! Fine, that was two - you see, one adjective didn't quite cut it. The sets, lights, sound and costumes were awesomely elaborate works of art. The actors were talented (though the actor who played Fiyero did trip on his happily-ever-after exit mere moments before the curtains came down) and both the plot and script, with their themes of love, friendship, acceptance and forgiveness, were brimming with brilliance and wicked humour. No wonder it's a Broadway hit. I was even enchanted enough to splash out $70 for the 'Grimmerie' - an awesome book detailing what went on behind the scenes. Oops, can't seem to get enough of the word 'awesome'.

One of my favourite parts of the show was 'Defying Gravity'. It was mesmerizing and touching. See for yourself:

Do catch it if you haven't already. If you're not familiar with the story Wizard of Oz, do google it before you go because it'll only help you appreciate the show better. Get seats in the A Reserve if you want a good view. They don't come cheap at $168/pax (or $148/pax if you have four in your party like we did), but every penny is worth it. Aisle seats would also be a great idea if you don't want your view blocked more than half the time by the poofy hairdo of the lady seated in front of you. True story (cue imagination of the 9gag emoticon).
