Wicked

A few years ago, my daughter expressed a desire to see the musical "Wicked".  I have to admit that the songs didn't really excite me but last year when I saw that the production was coming to Leeds, I thought I would treat us to a couple of tickets.  So last week after work on Tuesday, we hot footed it up to Leeds Grand Theatre.  I love the way that we are still Theatre buddies.

 Leeds Grand is a gorgeous little Victorian theatre that has been restored perfectly.  It's a proper gem.  I can't understand why people pay vast amounts of money and flock to London's West End theatre's when they generally have such treasures on their doorsteps.
 My camera is not behaving at all and I am having problems with focus - hubby says it is over used!


 Any way - all I can say about Wicked is that it is probably the best musical I have ever seen!!  It blew me away!  The story is excellent, the acting and sing was totally superb - each and every cast member was awesome.  The costumes were stunning and visually the whole thing was immense.  I was bowled over by it.  Musical theatre at its very very best.
Go see it xx

Eleanor and I went to see it last week too, it's brilliant, isn't it? I wasn't really looking forward to it, I bought the tickets because Eleanor wanted to see it, but I'm so pleased I went now. I'd go again.

It's one we all want to see so I hope we get there one day. Graham was looking at tickets recently for when we are in London soon but the seats were duff ones. We'll keep trying though. Glad you and your gorgeous DQ had a fun evening together.

Not much of a musical theatre fan, but Leeds Grand looks beautiful - as do your and your daughter! xxx

My daughter wanted me to see this too, but I wasn't very enthusiastic. Think I might reconsider!
