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....
