One of the things on my list was “Go to a musical” and last week, we crossed that one off.
WICKED came to DPAC again this month (it showed here two years ago as well) and Andrew and I went to see it. I really love the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), they do a great job making the place clean and comfortable and fun to visit. And, any place that allows (encourages, even) me to take a glass of wine into the show with me has my vote for a fun evening out.
I’d gone with a friend two years ago to see WICKED, and this time Andrew came along. The show was just as incredible as I’d remembered. Andrew wasn’t too thrilled about going in the first place, but he really enjoyed it. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s funny (really!), it makes me cry, it makes me happy in that feel-good-movie sort of way.
I’ve had the songs playing through my head since last week (FIERO!!!!) so it’s been fun to extend the experience a little that way.
