Wicked

So I occassionally bartend down at the Orpheum Theater here in town. This month the show, Wicked is playing. I have worked several of the shows. The great part about working at the Orpheum is that sometimes you get to watch the show on the tv in the lounge/lobby. I have worked enough that I have now gotten to see the whole performance. All I have to say is ... Wow! I had hear a lot of hype about this show. I was a bit skeptical. I mean I do love a good musical, but could it really be as good as everyone said. I was prepared to be a little disappointed after all the hype.

I was NOT disappointed. The show is really amazing. The songs are catchy and get stuck in your head. The cast is awesome. The set is beautiful. I really wish I had the cash and was going to sit down and see the show inside the theater. If you are going to the show, first I'm jealous, second you will love it.

After listening to all the songs several times over I really want to own the soundtrack. I'm thinking about telling Nathan he should get it for me to make up for the less than spectacular Mother's Day. I can't possibly wait until the next gift giving holiday, because that is Christmas, and I always feel guilty buying things like that for myself.
