What is the reason for the visit, you ask? Behold the photo below and see if you can guess.
WICKED is in town and Stacey has been dying to see it. It just so happened that SolidGold had been so kind as to get us tickets as well for a fun group date with some other friends (The Poels) so it worked out perfectly! Stacey got her ticket for the same night as us and hitched a ride down as the 7th wheel to our triple date.
Here we are in our seats. We were about 8 rows from the front and off to the left a little. They were great. I could even see some spit coming out of the Wonderful Wizard's mouth as he spoke sometimes. Oh, side note...guess who our Wizard was.... Larry from Three's Company! Who knew he could sing?
I have been a huge fan of Wicked for just over a year now. My other SIL gave me the CD and I listened to it non-stop for months. I knew every song but had never seen the actual performance. It was uber hard not to sing along. I am in awe of these people's talents. What would it be like to stand on a stage and belt out songs the way they do? Mind boggling. I highly recommend Wicked to anyone (shocker!). It's funny, clever, great music and Gty even loved it.
I also highly recommend having Stacey & Dotty come and stay at your house! Dotty is the cutest dang thing ever & I got to see a little of what Beebs will be like as a babysitter. She was diligent in following Dotty around and making sure she wasn't getting into too much trouble. I had made the grievous mistake of telling Beebs they were coming a good week in advance. Why do I do this to myself over and over? She then asked EVERY DAY if that was they day they were getting here. You'd think I'd learn fhs (that's for you Markie).
PS 14 more days to SF!!!!!!
