A Wicked Evening

On Tuesday I went and saw Wicked! For Christmas, Brandon had gave me a ticket to see the musical Wicked when it came to Memphis this July. I was so excited. I have seriously been counting down the days to see the play ever since.

The play was at the Orpheum in downtown Memphis. It was so magical walking into that beautiful building. It was the perfect place for the play. Picture below was taken right before the play started.The actors and actresses were an amazing, talented group of people. The songs from Wicked that I have listened to almost every day since October were sung beautifully. My favorite song from the play would have to be Defying Gravity with As Long as Your Mine coming in at a close second.

The costumes were fantastic! They totally completed the characters and help them really come to life.

The only thing that would have made that night better would have been if Brandon saw the play with me. He only bought one ticket back in October for a great price. By the time I started looking for tickets the play had already been sold out or the ticket prices were extremely high. Picture below was me in the theater waiting for the play to start.It was such a great evening and it was fun to see truly my first high class Broadway play.

Way to go all by yourself! I don't know if I could do that.

We're going when it comes here in November and I am so excited. That play is incredible.

That sounds like so much fun. I would love to go to that play. The only song I know from that is Popular. That's a fun one.
