Wicked is set in the Land of Oz (you know, as in The Wizard of Oz?), before Dorothy arrives. It centers on Elphaba, an intelligent, green-skinned, sadly misunderstood girl, and Galinda, the blonde-haired queen of popularity. Years later, Elphaba is the maleficent Wicked Witch of the West, and Galinda (aka Glinda) becomes the Good Witch of the North. In the musical, the two girls become friends when they find themselves roommates in college. The story forces you ask yourself what it means to be truly "Wicked", and whether having good intentions with a bad outcome is the same as having bad intentions with a bad outcome.
Of course, a musical isn't a musical without show tunes. And Wicked has fabulous show tunes. Which makes me love it even more than I already do. ;) For example, the song Popular. It will stay in your head for days, so choose carefully whether or not you want to watch it.
I suppose I should let you carry on with your life now.... BUT THIS IS SO MUCH FUN I CAN'T YET. I must show you pictures first. *Grins* My Pinterest boards are filled with 'em.
I think I'm in love with these shoes...
Where can I find this notebook..?
I'm officially forcing myself to stop now.
