movie but the Broadway Musical (click on the image for the official website)! We first heard about it last fall when my niece Shari took her mom (my sister Susan) in Chicago just before Susan's wedding. Shari has worked with high school choirs for years and said this is the absolutely best musical ever! So we paid attention! It is now here in Atlanta and for Mother's Day, Donica got tickets for me, Amy, her mom and aunt for this afternoon's show (while she slaves away in Amsterdam!).
Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre is in Midtown and is where we have seen so many plays and musicals. It really is fabulous. A place you grow to love more every time you're in it. It has an atmosphere that makes you feel you're "big time." Okay, Kim, so it's not exactly New York or Broadway. But I'm guessing it's a close second, and we love it.
This particular musical is "the untold story of the witches of Oz," specifically of Glinda, the Good Witch, and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West (WWW)...the prequel to The Wizard of Oz, as told by Gregory Maguire in his novel.
Oh my! I won't give any of it away but IT'S WONDERFUL! Wickedly delicious. Wickedly delightful. Based on the musical alone (I haven't read the book), I'd pick the WWW to be my friend first before the "Good Witch." And I'd wear any of her paraphernalia with pride! Sometimes Wicked is Good; sometimes Good is Wicked. And that's all I'll say about that :)
