Wicked the MusicalWe had the most amazing night!!!  We took the family to see the Broadway touring show “WICKED”.  The musical tells the story of Oz before Dorothy shows up.  All your questions about the witches of Oz are answered in this show – why the Wicked Witch of the West (Elphaba) is green, how Glenda became the Good Witch of Munchkin Land, how the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion became who are they are.

Hayley Podschun as Glenda and Jennifer DiNoia as Elphaba, along with a FANTASTIC ensemble, we spent the evening on the edge of our seats (and trying hard not to belt out along with Jennifer on “Defying Gravity”)

My girls love their This & That books so I created some fun cards for their book, and a place for the actors to sign.

We didn’t get to the stage door fast enough to meet Jennifer and Hayley but the girls are going to go back to the theater on Friday night and try to meet them so they can sign their cards.

I was so thrilled with how my “Wicked” cards turned out!  You know, sometimes I make something and I’m like, “Meh?”  But these cards I was just so proud!

Thought I would share some pictures of the girl and myself meeting some of the cast members after the show.  (Got like 5 comments from strangers on “the red dress” – wahoo!)

We still have those smiles on our faces today!  Such a fabulous show!

Side Note:  the name Elphaba?  Well, the author of The Wizard of Oz is L.Frank Baum.  Take his initials L.F.B. and you get El Fa Ba – Elphaba!  There’s your little pice of trivia for today.

Well, you’ve probably had enough Wicked for today.  I hope you all have a wicked awesome weekend!
