A NIGHT OUT...............................

Last night, my wonderful soul mate and I joined friends to see the opening night of "Wicked"...I had read Gregory Maguire's novel several years ago and had mostly forgotten the main parts of the book.  

But what I did remember was the main character...Elphaba...and that it did happen in the most wonderful place of all....OZ.
It has loose ties to the original Wizard of OZ....but the story line is so original that anyone will be throughly entertained.

If it comes to a theater anywhere near you....I believe it is a must see for anyone who loves live theatre.  

I know in these trying times supporting the arts may seem a little frivolous...but the arts are especially necessary for one's soul during stressful times.

"Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual."

Have a beautiful day....




  1. Oh Jo Sweetie...
    Does that ever sound like fun. I would love to go and see a live theatre. I haven't ventured yet, but we do have wonderful theatres here in the valley. It is on my bucket list, and once we go, maybe it will be come one of my favs.

    It is so nice to have quiet time and quality time with our better halves.

    Have a gorgeous day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  2. My goodness, here I live in the heart of theater country, and I cannot tell you how many years it has been for me since I went to see a show. That's pretty sad.

  3. Glad you enjoyed it! I'd love to see it someday too.

  4. Oh I would love to see Wicked. I read the book and I hear the play is amazing. It sounds like you had a lovely time.


  5. I am interested to read the book, and live theater sounds like fun, and not at all frivolous.

  6. Good for you! Glad you had a fun night out. And you are right about supporting the arts--that is never frivolous.

  7. Oh, I've been meaning to see this one for a long time! Thanks for the reminder...

    You're so right about the arts nurturing the soul, and it is especially important during stressful times. Even if you can't afford theatre tickets, a stroll through a museum costs little or nothing! Even gazing at a beautiful flower is art appreciation.

  8. The last live theater presentation I saw was "Menopause". My face hurt for two days because I laughed so hard! I did enter a contest to win tickets to see "Wicked"! Perhaps I will! I love the arts. A good show or a great art show are some of my favorite things to do! Thanks for sharing.


Your comments enrich my soul. I love hearing from you.
