I'll Get You My Pretties

I have been wanting to see the musical Wicked for YEARS! Really ever since I decided I was in love with Kristin Chenowith. I mean, did you see her in Pushing Daisies? So cute. So dainty. So talented. Plus her name is only one letter short of MY name. Yes, we're basically the same - proof:

Kristina + Kristin = Same Same

Okay, FINE, we don't look that much alike. We're both blonde and short and that's about it, but in my mind we are the same. And we're best friends. Forever.

Annnnnyyyyhoodle....the point? Oh yes. Kristin is also a very talented singer and Tony Award Winner. She played the original Glinda in Wicked, and the role was actually written with her in mind. Naturally, I have been obsessively watching youtube clips of her singing in Wicked ever since I can remember, SO when the show came to town I was overjoyed to see it! I had been wanting to see it for so long, in fact, that it was something that made my 30 Before 30 list! Convenient for me that the traveling cast came to Seattle!

I regret not taking a photo of my fabulous, dressed up friends who joined me for the evening at the Theatre, but I do have this lovely shot of Denise and I:

I definitely enjoyed the show and was surprised by how well it integrated into the story of the Wizard of Oz. It really does give you a glimpse into the "Untold Story of Oz" as advertised. It's gone from Seattle now, but if you ever have a chance to check it out in your city, I recommend Wicked, even without my gal Kristin as Glinda.
