    Who here has seen Wicked, and what did you think of it? I reserved a group of 15 tickets for next May at 10 a.m. this morning and now I have to call back tomorrow and add more! I think all but four or so are repeat viewers!!! What is your favorite musical?

    I haven't seen the musical but I read the book years ago before anyone even heard of it. I tried telling people how strangely good it was, but no one had any interest. Look at it now! [​IMG]

    Oh, and favorite musical: BY FAR Les Miserables!!!

    See my name? Die hard fan. Have read the book and seen the musical. Loved them both. This was great but I have also seen Phantom and had front row seats. That was even better since we could see so much.

    Quote:I'm seeing Les Mis next year for the first time, although I know many of the songs. I had my gums grafted two weeks ago, and when my wife picked me up she said I thanked her for the ride home and then sang "Bring Him Home" repeatedly all the way home. I can't wait to see it!!!

    Quote:I would really like to see Phantom again, it has been 15 years for me. We don't do front row anymore because my wife becomes overly distracted/disgusted when people are ovly "spitty" when they sing LOL. I figured we had some Wicked addicts around here!!!

    Wicked is soooo wonderful.

    I have seen it twice, and I would go again in a heart beat. I bought the book the Grimmerie, and another one about the philosopy (Not the book by Maguire, I think he wrote the original of his Wicked years trilogy).

    You will love it. It is magical, excellent, brilliant. (am I over the top)--- Get the CD of the broadway sound track. It rings in your head...yet the phrasing is not the run of the mill june, moon, tune stuff.

    I kept saying I wish they would make a movie so eVERYone could see it (for movie tick prices -- rather than show prices). It is fabulous.

    I really want to see it (Wicked) I love musicals. I haven't seen that many though.


    I was inspired to look at the Wicked website - It is coming to Austin 01/2012 ! I am soooo there.

    My girls gave me the Grimmerie for Christmas the year we went. I am a big fan of Maguire and have several of his books. I love the fact that he used these tales and turned them around so we see them from an entirely different view. I have Son of a Witch, Lost and others. I have not read the latest in the trilogy.

    Quote:Oh I *do* love Wicked! This will be my fifth time seeing it. I just wanted to know if everyone else loves it as much as I do. Where did you see it??? Do you remember who played Elphaba or G(a)linda?

    LOVED Wicked, saw it last year, it was awesome!!!!!!!!

    I love musicals in general, to pick just one would be hard, but if I just had to I'd say Camelot.
