I saw Wicked this past weekend with two of my closest friends from Iowa. I have been looking forward to seeing this show for months now, ever since I heard the soundtrack this summer. Already well-versed in every song, I spent the majority of the show joyously mouthing the words along with the actors in my own blissful seat.
When it came time for the last song of the first act, “Defying Gravity,” I nearly fell out of my seat and got a little ferclemped. It’s such a powerful scene, and a powerful show. I’m so glad I was able to see this show.
