Sorry it took so long. It's so hard to get back into the swing of things after a whirlwind weekend. And the fact that I don't have all my old stuff (like 12,000 pictures) transfered into my new and improved mac... I'm dealing. Brother is busy and I will be a patient recipient of an updated system (and all the adobe stuff one could ever dream of....)
The highlight of our trip was definitely seeing Wicked (and then the real wicked people of LA :)
I even got to go with some of my favorite people!
I can't even put into words how much I loved this musical. he only other musical I've seen was Mamma Mia. But this was tops. I snuck a couple pics inside the Pantages Theatre.
This is the ceiling of the Pantages Theatre. It was so beautiful in real life!
The stage before the show started. The visuals were amazing, as were the costumes and lighting and .... everything!
But not during the show. I love the meaning behind everything in Wicked. Are some BORN Wicked or do their circumstances create it? I laughed - Glenda was so amazingingly annoying and talented. She even got Elfaba to break character and laugh - 2x! I cried - but that's not new.
When we got out of the theatre, there was the end of a protest up the street. We had to drive by to get to the freeway. It was a little tense for all of us (especially with my brothers Yes on 8 sticker on the back of the car.)
We made it home, safe and sound, thanks to Samantha and her awesome LA driving! Plus a little hot coco from Starbucks!
I'll give you more details late about the stars we saw.... and hugged! Oh, yeah and the tv set we went on! Got pics of that, too.
