Defying Gravity

Have you seen “Wicked” yet? It’s a broadway play that’s sweeping the nation (pun intended for those who’ve seen it! ;-). Anyway, if you get a chance to go – GO! It’s the story of Elphaba (a.k.a. The Wicked Witch) and it’s the story of her life from birth up to the events we know from “The Wizard of Oz” – but told from her perspective.

What we find out is that she wasn’t really wicked – she was just misunderstood. Besides having the best score of any musical I’ve ever seen (including Phantom, Les Miserables, Lion King, etc.) it has very relevant social, political and religious themes.

After the show, we were invited to the private cast party. Above are some pictures of myself and my nieces with members of the cast.
