My New Musical Obsession

OK, so in the last week, I've developed an obsession with Wicked the Musical. *Facepalm* I HATE developing new obsessions!!! Haha, yeah right. I actually love it when that happens. The only problem is that I think about it ALL THE TIME... but whatever. I still enjoy it. Anyway.








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.

  1. My dad and I read about Wicked and we heard about the "misunderstood" Elpheba, and my dad decided it wasn't appropriate. I have to say, without seeing the musical, it sounds to me like evil is being shown as good (the Wicked Witch as good).

    But...I like the song "Defying Gravity"...and I have to admit I really liked the parts I saw on YouTube with Aaron Tveit as Fiyero.

    Elpheba: It must have scratched you!
    Fiyero: Yeah...or maybe it scratched me.
    Me: LOL!

    P.S. I love developing new obsessions. xD

    1. Thanks for the comment Alyianna! I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.

      I've actually never seen the play, so could be right about the portrayal of evil as good. I've heard so many mixed opinions of the play from good Catholic families, that I think it really does come down to personal discerment with the guidance of our parents.

      God bless! :)

  2. Haha, my cousin came down last summer and told me a hilarious story about how one of her guy friend's actually sang "Popular" to her! And she was thus sick of it. But having not heard it I had to go find it and listen. Then I got just how funny the situation had been :D With every so excited about this musical, I'll have to go see it at some point I suppose :) Nice post and thanks for the follow!
