A Wonderfully "Wicked" Weekend!

This past weekend me and Mom made a trip to Memphis to make good on my birthday present to her:  We went to see Wicked.

WOW.  Just… WOW.

We got down there a little early, so we walked to Beale St. to get some lunch and ended up at B.B. King’s.  If it hadn’t been for the show starting at 1:30, I could have stayed there all afternoon.  Nothing like a live band singin’ the blues!

We stayed and listened as long as we could, then we had to get up and run in the rain back to the Orpheum.

I just can’t say enough about this production.  I laughed, I cried, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up, and I think I stopped breathing a time or two.  (For those of you who’ve seen it–Defying Gravity.)

No photography was allowed during the show (and I had a freaking usher standing right over my right shoulder for the whole thing, so I couldn’t even sneak one in), so I don’t have any pictures to share.  You’ll just have to see it for yourself.  And I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you see it for yourself!

I will never watch the Wizard of Oz the same way again!
