Changed for the better

Just got in from seeing Wicked at the Pantages, a classically ornate theater in Hollywood. Hubby, kiddos and I drove down early and parked at my cousin's home, then made the less than a mile walk to the theater. Along Hollywood and Vine, we walked over a bunch of 'stars'--Audrey Hepburn, Shirley Temple, The Beach Boys, to name a few.

Loved the show! Have you seen it? It's a 'wickedly' creative precursor to the Wizard of Oz. Lots of fanciful story twists (always fun for a writer to see), awesome effects, and good music. Teen Daughter sang a solo/duet of For Good at several performances during her final year of middle school, so of course we all new that one by heart ;)

And yeah, we're the diehard fans who wait behind the theater by the stage door, hoping for autographs. Took an hour, and some tired feet, but we got (most) of 'em! (One actress wasn't feeling well...:( )

p.s. The title of this post is a nod to the song, For Good. Just can't seem to get that one out of my head...!

Sounds like a good play!! I have heard a lot of good things about it, I should really go see it soon. Last play I saw was West Side Story at SDSU a few years ago... I love going to see plays at the college.

Hope you got some good sleep last night or should I say this!!
