Defying Gravity


That is what I felt like when I finally got my chance to see Wicked tonight. Yes, it has taken me over 2 years to finally see the Chicago production. But it was definitely worth the wait!

didiseven was fortunate enough to score main floor tickets for their 1000th performance here in Chicago! Along with djzack67 and my man nullslashvoid we were off to see Wicked. I was just simply blown away by the production. I had listened to the original Broadway soundtrack many times, and to finally see the show was just amazing! It will definitely be a night I will not forget.

Thanks again to didiseven for this wonderful opportunity to see this production. It was a very memorable night.

I'm really happy for you. This is one of my favorite musicals and I'm glad you saw it. 'Defying Gravity' gives me chills even when I listen to it on my mp3 player. Seeing it in front of me, with Elphaba rising above the stage, made me cry.

I'm glad you went!

:D

That was my favorite! I was so in awe over the finale for the first act. Loved every minute of it.

Do you still watch Ugly Betty? She went to see Wicked on last week's episode and I got so jealous. It's not playing here anymore but as soon as it comes back (or when I go to NYC) I *have to* see it again.

Did you buy or do you have the soundtrack?

I love that show!

I saw that episode! Such a great one too. Was very cute. Did you ever see it when it was in Toronto then? I listen to the soundtrack all the time. :)

Yeah, I saw it in Toronto last Halloween (2006) and totally loved it. It's one of those musicals that I could definitely go back to again and again, just like Mama Mia or Phantom.

:D

Excellent! We have Avenue Q coming to Chicago for two weeks at the end of May. Those will sell out fast!

I'm envious -- I very much want to see this, and Carl's rather neutral on the matter, sadly...
