Then on Christmas Eve, my BIL mentioned that he bought tix for his wife (SIL) but now he has to travel for work for 2 weeks and Wicked fell into those 2 weeks so I might have to keep SIL company at the show. I was starting to get excited again. Then, on our anniversary, BIL texted the Hubs and said that SIL and our nephew were flying up to see him so they needed someone to take their Wicked tix. It was our anniversary present. Insert really excited Jess face!!!!
Needless to say, January 20th has been circled in my planner since that day and the countdown began. I think I get a little annoying by the time the actual day arrives because all I can think about is going. I'm sure the Hubs wanted to kill me. I was like a kid on Christmas. I didn't sleep too well Saturday night and woke up Sunday so excited!!! All I could talk about was the show. So I think he was happy when we got there and I couldn't talk anymore.
We got to the theater around 1215 and headed in. We stopped and looked at all the Wicked items and the Hubs indulged me and got the coffee mug for me. Then we headed to the Orchestra 11 doorway to wait for the doors to open. When they did, we entered and I was awestruck. We were in the 10th row! My BIL/SIL have totally spoiled me now because I think I need to sit close every time!!! The set design was amazing, what little I could see at that moment.
|Yep. That's the stage so close to my seat. So excited!!!!!|
Back to the show.....
The Hubs didn't realize that it was a musical. I'm not really sure how this happened because I made a point to find the Gershwin Theatre in NYC so I could say I was at the theater Wicked calls home.
|Our trip to NYC in 2011. I will see this show in this theater before I die. Get on it Hubs!!!!|
If you haven't had the opportunity to see Wicked, you have to! It's an amazing show! And if you need someone to go with you, I'm always up for the challenge!!!
I'm spending the rest of my day off with songs of Wicked in my head and enjoying my coffee a little more than usual today
