A Wicked Good Time at the Murat













Seemingly everyone else already has read the book Wicked or seen the play in another city but, yesterday at the Murat, Mrs. WYA! went knowing little about it (besides that it was about the Wizard of Oz witches) and loved it. We tend to dismiss things once they reach a certain level of mass popularity, it's just the contrarian in us, but there's no denying that this was a really enjoyable production. The sets were gorgeous (we've never seen the Murat stage with a dragon above it), the story was great, and the actors were wonderful. It was nice to see not a vacant seat in the house and to be among such an enthusiastic audience, at the Sunday matinee even. Evidently there's a reason that some things become widely popular- it's because they are really good.

I saw this in Chicago, definitely my favorite Broadway musical to date (not that I've seen very many live yet). Rumors that there is going to be a movie, pretty excited about that.

We like that rumor! We were actually wondering that after we saw it yesterday.
