so now i understand what all the craze is about!
i can't believe how quickly it came, but, my boyfriend and i finally went to go and see "wicked" yesterday evening. i bought the tickets before his birthday, nearly three months ago, and had to wait until now in order to get decent seating! we had a very nice evening, starting with dinner at the ristorante we at the w hotel.
(total sidenote: i was late for dinner because i didn't go and *buy* something to wear to the performance - i actually wore something out of my closet! (in retrospect, it would've just been easier to go and buy something.) the most amazing thing is, though, is that we managed to walk approximately seven blocks, with me, in these totally uncomfortable, strappy heels? and when i took the shoes off, i didn't have one blister on my feet! unbelievable!)
but now i understand. what a spectacular performance! i just downloaded the soundtrack, and, geez, i just *love* it! i want to go again!
