Last night Hayley and me went to see Wicked the Musical. It had been on the list for a while and we managed to score cheap tickets to go and see it last night.

Wicked is say, a sorta prequel/side story about the Witches of Oz.

Wicked tells the story of Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West and her relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. Their friendship struggles through their opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, their reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace. The plot is set mostly before Dorothy's arrival from Kansas, and includes several references to well-known scenes and dialogue in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but can tell you that I now look at The Wizard of Oz in a different light. The musical was fantastic, the singing brilliant and even had some funny parts. I would totally recommend it ... it was WICKED!!
