Wicked – The Broadway Musical

10th March 2010 at 6:53 pm

Dear Chibi,

Last night at 8pm, Jacky and I went to see WICKED- The Broadway Musical at the Capitol Theatre :) It was the first time I’ve ever seen a live musical, and going inside Capitol Theatre. It was quite an amazing experience O_O! I was just mesmerized by all the shiny glitter and lights.. the atmosphere was quite something.  We felt under-dressed though, hahah! We had no idea it was such a dressy occasion but I guess that made it more special. (And now we know.. for next time..xD)

We end up getting pretty good seats and thanks to Kaz it was discounted too, yay~Too bad she couldn’t see it with us.

Wicked Amanda Harrison and Lucy Durack

Elphaba & Galinda

We’ve never seen The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, so didn’t have any idea what to expect story-wise (I didn’t watch any trailers either).  All I knew was that there’s a Tin-man, scarecrow and a girl…and they journey together… yeah.. XD Fortunately, watching this musical wasn’t confusing at all, though there were many references I’m sure fans would have enjoyed :) Today I started reading up on The Wizard of Oz and thought the links were fascinating! I really enjoyed watching the performance, it was humorous and entertaining. I thought the most impressive part was the singing, particularly Jemma Rix who played Elphaba..she’s INCREDIBLE!!! I know they’re pros.. but still, how can she sing so well..so flawlessly, act, remember her lines, dance at the same time? Galinda was pretty funny, and although she had a vain and irritating personality, she really grew on me.

There were some parts that were slightly creepy – I don’t like witches very much….green faces in dark capes don’t go well with me, lol. Good thing I didn’t get nightmares ^_^

It finished around 11pm so by then we were both really sleepy and tired. Worth watching though :D

    our first musical and probably the best one ever! i thought it was almost flawless (except for Bert Newton – as the wizard) didnt think he suited the role. elphaba and Glinder are just so good…

    Thanks to Kerry for the Ticket offers =)
