I recently returned home from the East coast the highlight of the trip was definitely Wicked. I was leery about spending so much for a play but it was an absolute must for B. I’m happy to say it was absolutely worth it. I LOVED it! The primary roles were played by regular Lindsay Mendez as Elphaba and understudy Tiffany Haas as Glinda. Mendez was great but Haas stole the show. Utter perfection. I wish you could buy these things on tape because I’d love to see it again; however, I can’t imagine anyone else in the roles.
What I loved most about the show is that it’s FANFICTION! I don’t think most people think about that when they see the show but it was the first thing I noticed. I was always embarrassed by the type of writing I did but I’ve really come to embrace it. Seeing POPULAR reception of the medium is quite encouraging and fun.
Here’s some amazing fanfiction that doesn’t require background too appreciate: Aeternus Eternus and A Bed of Thorns.
