Wicked good

Getting Wicked tickets was such a challenge. Standing in line multiple times in the wind and cold, rushing through several blocks of congested Times Square sidewalks.. we finally got to see.

I really liked it. Loved the big musical and dance numbers. Liked the story line. Loved Elfafa and Glenda. Really strong female leads. I cried after the performance of Defying Gravity. It was so inspiring and reminded me of all I love about musical theatre.

I'm glad I got to see it. We also were 7 rows from the stage.

The cast were of diverse body types and race. It was really odd for me to see dancers, in the top Broadway show be short and squat, or normal, slightly overweight bodies. But it made me happy.

I liked that show. I don't think it was very profound, but it was very entertaining and fun. And the production value was amazing.The only other show I can think of with that great a production is Lion King.

Aside from the show, we walked around Soho and went shopping. There were so many shops in Soho, pretty much every trendy brand. And so many tourists. And so many rude people. But also a lot of helpful people.

For food we had good cheap Thai at Chelsea. Then we went to K-town to eat some authentic Korean food.. which was quite interesting.

Wow, very cool. I tried to get Wicked tickets a few times during the summer I spent in Manhattan, and I never managed to get any when I had somebody with whom to see it. I'm still hopeful that someday I'll have an opportunity. :-)
