When Durham decided to build a performing arts center a couple of years ago we heard a rumor that Wicked would be one of the first season’s shows. I was so excited—we’d given Cindy Lynn tickets to Wicked for Christmas in 2006, and it was so extraordinary I couldn’t wait to see it again.
In a rare moment of “you only live once” we decided that we would take all of the kids this year. We’ve prepped this week by reading the synopsis online (to eliminate questions during the event itself), listening to the cd, and playing “Name that Wicked tune” when in the car.
Last night was THE night, and it was amazing. The music was fantastic, the sets and costumes were beautiful, and the script was clever. We laughed and laughed and in the end, cried.
It was beautastic.
