I went to see Wicked today with my mom at the Detroit Opera House. I had started reading the book awhile ago & just never got past chapter 1. I know I tried really hard right, lol. Last night, I started it again, made it to chapter 2.
I loved the play though. It was well done, great cast, awesome costumes! My mom enjoyed it as well & had a nice time. It is the first time as adults, we went to a play together. She used to go with her mom and sister a lot. She even took my daughter to something.
We got there ok. It helped that Cami was at Children's last week, I felt familiar with Detroit. The worst was that I had to drop my mom at the front door (she is handicapped) & then find parking & walk by myself. This was the first time going to the Detroit Opera house for me. It is beautiful. I think I've been to all the venues in Detroit now.
My favorite part was the dance. I loved the black & white costumes the students were wearing. I tried finding a picture but without success. I also loved the scene when the witch got the lion away. Loved the dancing the students did. I'm going to try and finish the book now. Maybe after seeing it live, I will get into it a bit more.
Oh, and my mom got me the cutest Wicked top. I wanted the Wicked: The Grimmerie, a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Hit Broadway Musical. It was really cool, but they wanted 50 bucks for it.
