Today was so much fun! My mom, two sisters and I went into NYC to see Wicked! It was a belated birthday present for my middle sister (both are younger) and we all got to go. The show was AMAZING! I loved every minute. We were in the second row - yes, the second row! At times we had to crane our necks up to see all of the action. Towards the end of the show, I could actually see the spots on the main actress' (Nicole Parker) hands where the green paint was starting to wear through. I could see the seam and zipper on the green shirt she wore. I could see the tiny microphones all the actors had on their foreheads. It was so cool! The songs were amazing and the actors gave such a wonderful performance. The actress who played Glinda (Alli Mauzey) has a beautiful voice and was really funny. The storyline was so interesting and definitely held my interest. Loved it!
The only downside to the day was catching the train home with three thousand other people. Some of the earlier trains had been cancelled for whatever reason, so it was standing room only for most of the hour long train ride home. Ugh.
