Inspirational Thursday-Wicked-A New Musical

Oh, I am in a happy place today-and I want to share my happiness with you!!

Why?

When I found out that Wicked was coming to Dallas at Music Hall at Fair Park-

I squealed-maybe not really squealed-but I was one happy gal!

Two months ago we purchased these tickets and I have been counting down

the months, weeks, days and hours and the time has now have arrived.

The hubby, some dear friends and I 

are seeing Wicked!

Wicked- a musical adaptation of a novel written by Gregory Maguire-which just happens to be a parallel novel of my all time favorite movie...

The Wizard of Oz-




The Wizard of Oz-seems to transcend generations, cultures and ideology because  

I have yet to meet a person who did not appreciate something about The Wizard 

Of Oz.  My seven and three year old granddaughters LOVE this movie- a young

associate at work was beside herself when I mentioned to her that we were going 

to see Wicked-because she enjoys musicals and because she loves The Wizard of 

Oz-







                      Who could resist an intriguing plot of good versus evil?
 








Glinda









                                                    Elphaba






Wicked is a musical told from the perspective of two unlikely friends who just 

happen to be witches who live in the Land Of Oz.




I have longed to see this musical for years and years!!  

The storyline alone has me hooked  - how delightful and entertaining is this.







             So, tonight, I am putting on my Ruby Red Slippers-

             I won't be on my computer...
    
             I won't be reading a book...

             I will be in Oz!!


What is your favorite movie, musical or play?
