Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

WICKED!!!! I love

WICKED!!!! I love Wicked, the book and the musical!  I love it because it shows you the other side of the story through the Wicked Witch of the west.  It shows  what happened to her to become wicked. it's really good.  it also shows who is the scarecrow, the lion, the tin man.  It is really good!  I saw it at a theater and I am working on the book.  

P.S.  this is one of my threads for the challenge!

Well, Wicked is about Elphaba (The Wicked witch of the west) and what happened in her life to become wicked. I'll type what the back of the book says:

When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch nemesis, the mysterious Witch? Where did she come from? how did she become so wicked?

You'll find out who really is the bad person.

Yah, if the hehehehe had been like Gollom, it would have been WAY to creepy. I used to be really good at doing his voice. But I forgot what it's like. I haven't seen the movie/ies? in a loooooong time

You will cry at the end when Elphie melts. You will probably be disturbed in the middle, though. In the Emerald City?

Yes, I most likely will cry.  What do you mean disturbed?

Yah? What do you mean??? I'm going with someone who's bringing their little kid who I think is way to young to sit still long enough!!!! He loves to be bossy, and he's a little spoiled, and I have a feeling it's not going to go well. Especially because we're going at night. Ugg... I hope a don't sit directly next to him...



But really, what do you mean disturbed???????? I used to be able to watch superhero movies. But now, I hate to say, ever since I watched a movie that was supposed to be funny, but instead traumatized me for life, I've not been able to watch anything remotely scary! So WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?????????????????

Oh, and I'd rather not talk about it... the movie, that is.

I meant the middle of the book. The two are very different though the plots are very close together, and the play is MUCH more kid-friendly. The middle of the play is the AWESOME "Defying Gravity" scene, in which Elphie flies. It's not disturbing in the least, though it's quite emotional.

Don't worry. The play is not remotely scary, except at the beginning when the Time Dragon roars at you. But that's more of a "HA! MADE YER JUMP!" scare than a freaky scare. Anyway, it's really cool. The play is very emotionally charged, however - from the very first chord and the Ozian's cries of relief to the last, forlorn note you will be sucked in by the wide range of emotion and the beautiful score. Also the fantastic set, but that's another matter entirely. Anyhoo, be prepared to feel kind of... drained? as you walk out, because you basically sit for two hours and have your feelings manipulated by the characters on stage. It's that good.

To quote a review... "If every musical had the brains, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway would be a truly magical place."

*hug* You'll have a great time and love every one of the characters except Madame Morrible. Promise.

Were you talking about Elphie and Fiyero?  I understand why you call it disturbing.

The play's fine, contentwise, maybe confusing for someone under five. But I think TNÖ's talking about the book... which I have not read yet, mind you... which has... adult parts, shall we say? 

Anyway, Wicked is a crazily amazing show. It is in Portland right now, and we were going to see it, but the prices are like $78 for a BALCONY seat!! So, even though we got to see it in November on Broadway, we won't be able to see it. Should I not be disappointed? Am I a spoiled conniving Brat? But it's Wicked! *sobs*

I totally know what you mean about feeling drained. I was so incredibly moved at the end of the show (being my first Broadway show, and, of course, Wicked, which would blow anyone away), that I collapsed in my seat from screaming and clapping. My palms still feel raw:) It was SO good that I ALMOST bought a signed poster for 50 bucks, but upon finding out that it actually costed $100, I wisely changed my mind. (and what would I do with one of those, anyway!?) Anyway, I have my program and a Wicked cup from buying a Sprite midshow, so that's enough memorabilia for me...  Ah, the nostalgia of the first Broadway show... Incidentally, my second was The Lion King. It had amazing costumes, but alas, I didn't grasp much since I had been sick at the Museum of Modern Art earlier and spent much of the play in the Broadway bathroom :/ Oh well. Rather then than at Wicked!

Ooh, I'm on the same time as TNÖ!
