Friday night, Kelly and the kids and I went to see Wicked for the first time and it was a nice way to celebrate our 23rd anniversary, which was that day. When I bought the tickets in May, I went back and forth on how many tickets to buy, two or four, and decided that both our kids would be old enough to enjoy the show. The music and orchestra were especially a treat for all of us.
The UT campus was hot, like most days this summer have been. We begin mandatory water restrictions tomorrow, where we can only water our lawn once a week. This drought is intense.
For those who want to put their name in for the show two and a half hours prior, there is a drawing for $25 a seat, with a two ticket limit. Good to know!
We had decent seats, in the lowest balcony on the left, and I sat right on the edge. It was cozy. I just wish I had not left my binoculars on my desk at home so I could get a closer glimpse at the actors' faces. All the binocular rentals had sold out. Next time.
Kelly and I enjoyed sharing our date night with the kids.
They loved being there too. Christopher had an intense headache and the music was a bit loud and painful for him at times. Lindsey was singing along to most of the songs. She loves the Wicked soundtrack. The two vocalists/actors who played Elpheba and Glenda/Galinda did a phenomenal job and their voices complimented each other beautifully.
Intermission. There are several levels like this at the Bass Concert Hall on the University of Texas campus and in person, it's an interesting view to look up and down.
