We’re off to see the Wizard!

12 Mar

I was never a fan of the Wizard of Oz.  In fact, I have never seen the movie. Haha! I know, I know.  I was just more of The Sound of Music kind of girl rather than Oz when I was growing up.  I did see the movie, The Wiz, starring Michael Jackson.  But that was it 🙂  So I really didn’t know what to expect.  I just heard a lot of people say that Wicked was worth watching.  So, we all decided to watch since they were in Singapore 🙂

Wicked was being shown at the theater in Marina Bay Sands.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel across the street 🙂 I would love to stay here someday!

They have a skating rink???

I really loved how the mall of Marina Bay Sands looked.  It was like an airport! Love the ceilings and how grand it was! So many shops, fine dining restaurants and cafes.

This place is huge! 🙂

How cool are the see-through elevators! 🙂

Getting pretty excited to watch Wicked.

Awesome costumes! 🙂

Inside the lobby of the theater. Just bought some popcorn and water for the show 🙂

The Wicked Stage. Ok, Mr. Usher, I'm putting away my camera now. So this was all I took from inside the theater. hehe 🙂

OMG.  All I can say is BRAVO.  I found myself loving these two witches.  It was an awesome and touching musical.  I couldn’t stop singing the songs for days, up until today actually.  Fabulous show! And the Australian cast that came to Singapore was fantastic! Very comparable to the original cast, starring Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth! 🙂  Check out their performance at the Tony Awards!  This is my favorite song in the whole musical, Defying Gravity.  I do hope Wicked comes to Manila.  You all must know the true story about the witches of Oz 🙂

Before I end this entry, I would just like to share a few lines from one of my favorite songs from Wicked.  If only I knew this song years ago, I would have made this the song our wedding march. haha! Just kidding, Dants 🙂

“Something has changed within me… Something is not the same… I’m through with playing by the rules of someone else’s game.  Too late for second-guessing.  Too late to go back to sleep.  It’s time to trust my instincts.  Close my eyes and leap!  It’s time to try defying gravity.  I think I’ll try defying gravity and you can’t pull me down!”  – Elphaba

Have a great week everyone! 🙂

    The book was awesome. Its just like how most book-to-movie films are, the book is always better. There are a lot of other small stories that get dropped off when they put it on film. You’ll enjoy it at the very least…. and will want to watch Wicked again even more. 🙂

      Oh maybe I will read the book 🙂 When I have time. Gosh, you know I haven’t finished a book in years. I always start and then end up just putting them in the book shelf! 😦 ugh… Haha!
