I'll admit it: I'm a musical theater nerd. I have the entire score to Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera (and several other musicals) memorized, we have season tickets to Casa Manana, I used to act in musicals in high school and college, and I would love to do it again someday. Think what you want, but I will jump at the chance to see a musical 95 out of 100 times (I can think of about 5 situations in which I would not jump at the chance).
So, when I found out that Wicked was coming to Austin, I jumped. Actually, Gina jumped and bought the tickets. I heard some songs from this musical about a year ago, and I immediately looked online to see if it was coming to a city near Dallas anytime soon. The closest city in the near future was Austin, and it just so happened that we were able to get tickets and go. If you want to know the synopsis or hear any music, you can Google it. All I am going to say is that I was not disappointed. The music, the story, the stage ... they were all amazing. I hope to see it again the next time it comes to town. Below is a glimpse at some of the main songs.
