My sister ended up asking me to go to Wicked, which was an unexpected event. It's funny; when I was a student, I couldn't afford to buy tickets to musicals and I forgot how much I love them.
The costumes were incredible. I love clothing, as all my readers know, but I always wanted to be a costume designer. The dancers' costumes are the most amazing, because the materials and cuts that they use to emphasize movement gives these outfits such a vibrant effect.
Wicked also surprised me in that it took a children's book with a black-and-white interpretation of good evil and uses the complexity of life to illustrate that nothing is so simple as good versus evil. It addresses very adult issues such as prejudice, isolation, familial strain, and negative self-image.
As you can see, I was completely enamored.
