So, I don’t even know where to begin with my trip to New York. I can’t even begin to describe how fabulous it was – from start to finish. The highlight, by far (yes, even though the rest was great) was seeing Wicked on Broadway.
Pictures are coming, but since I have no pictures of Wicked, I’ll just share these clips (one’s kind of long, but it was the best one I could find) with Annaleigh Ashford as Glinda and Stephanie J. Block as Elphaba. We had amazing seats! Seventh row, center. It was like the best Christmas ever. (Thanks Erika!) I literally cried twice, it was that incredible. I love live performances. The music, the singing, the dancing, the costumes, the interaction of the performers with the audience. There’s no way to describe it, you just have to experience it.
In case you want to see the rest of the cast, you can view them here.
Oh, and when I was exiting the restroom before the show, I saw Allison Janney waiting to go in…it turns out her seats weren’t quite as good as ours (Erika wanted me to be sure to mention that), but they were close enough that we could easily watch her without it being obvious.
The rest will be posted tomorrow (I hope). So many pictures to filter through…
