Musicals

After watching Wicked last Wednesday with Wayne Young, I realized that
I’d been missing out on so much by not watching more musicals in this
city.

I love showtunes. There’s just something magical about the way people
sing and dance and tell stories. I love the way songs foreshadow each
other and are reprised. I love the structure of the songs, building to
a crescendo or thrilling me with their depths.

And watching the musical was so much better than just listening to the
music on Internet radio! Now, listening to the music, I can see the
production in my mind’s eye. I get goosebumps remembering Elphaba’s
songs “Defying Gravity” and “No Good Deed”.

I can’t wait for the next musical. Maybe I’ll pick up an appreciation
for opera along the way…
