Under a cut to save the Flist )

Not the complete play, just excerpts, but enough that it's worth a look if you're interested.

Wicked (aka, things I have learned today)

Thing one: Always check with mum when she buys the tickets to find out where the tickets are located... (long story, don't ask if you don't already know.)
Thing two: I should have bought a ticket to New York about two or three years ago.
Thing three: When I think I might like something, I need to go to greater lengths to go see it/experience it/read it.
Thing four: I have a long reading list ahead of me.


So...I saw Wicked. Finally. I knew I would enjoy it long before the big roar came. I've always intended to read the book. So that I enjoyed it wasn't the shock. What was was how strongly it affected me.

So to those who are like me out there, and think that they might enjoy it? Don't wait any longer than you have to to go see it. Trust me, it's worth it.

I still have a lot of thinking to do, and watching it made me want to reread the originals...I've always been an Ozma fan, myself, and not so much a Dorothy one, but Elphalba... Hence my new icon. I might need to find one of her, though I wasn't happy with what I did find. Hopefully I'll find something more soon.

Too much to think about, so I'll leave it at that, but...very great day. Aside from Thing One, anyway.

First-ever Theatre reveiw: Young Frankenstein

I love living in Seattle, and one of the reasons is because we have one of the best theatre communities in the US.  Unfortunately, it also means we don't get most Broadway shows until years later, if at all.  Except for a very rare once in a while when they decide to preview shows here.  It happened most notibly once before when they previewed Hairspray here.  This time, the show coincided with a time close enough to mine and my husband's birthdays that my parents decided to treat us to lunch and a show.

The show itself was wonderful, and I look forward to hearing how it fares on Broadway.  I think it translated much better than the Producers, really.  The young man playing Frederick Frankenstein did an excellent job, and though we didn't get to see Andrea Martin as Frau Blucher, I did think that Megan Mullally did an excellent job as Elizabeth.  As for Igor?  There may have been moments where he was channeling Marty Feldman, he did make the role all his own by the end of the show.

The big showstopper is excellent, and though my husband said it went on a bit too long, I thought they did it just right.  After all, it just wouldn't be Young Frankenstein without Putting on the Ritz.  One warning to those who have problems with it, though: there are strobelights and lots of flashing during the latter half of the number, and a great deal of lightning as well.

All in all?  If I get a chance, I'll probably go again.  I highly recommend it to those who are fans.

Fanvid

To those on my flist who like H/D and/or Avenue Q: you need to watch this fan vid.  It's too funny.  To the tune of "If You Were Gay."
