Wicked


Months and months ago, a friend ours sent an email that Wicked was coming to Jacksonville and that she was able to reserve prime tickets to one of the performances and it was at a discounted rate. We signed up and I have been impatiently waiting for the big night. Last night was the show and Glenn and I got to go on an amazing (and quite rare) date. My brother and his girlfriend watched the kids for us.

We had dinner with friends at Moss Fire Grill, one of my favorite local places in Jacksonville. We really should eat there more often considering how close it is to our house! The food is always yummy and last night was no exception. I even had a couple margaritas with dinner.

During dinner, I realized I left our tickets at home so we swung by the house to get them before heading to the Times-Union Performing Arts Center to watch the show.

The place was PACKED! And no wonder, the show was spectacular! The music, the acting and the stage design were all perfect. I really felt mesmerized the entire time. And today I'm left with a slight longing to watch it again! That's not likely anytime soon so I'll have to be happy with listening to the amazing soundtrack on my MP3 player. {{sigh}} And as soon as I'm finished with my current audiobook, Voyager by Diana Gabaldon....you can bet I'll be adding Wicked to my must read list.
