Finally saw the musical Wicked this year, before it left the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco. The hubby and I really enjoy musicals, and it’s been awhile since we’ve seen anything new. We’re glad to report that it was a very enjoyable show! Solid story, a wonderful musical score, great performers…Wicked had it all.
I also think there is something to be said about putting a twist on a familiar tale. We grow up hearing the story of the Wizard of Oz, so having that as an underlying “theme” puts everyone on the same page. Compare that to something like “Rent,” where, despite a great musical score, the audience may not quite relate as strongly to the theme of the show.
As for Tea Club, it does sadly look like I can’t return to it anytime soon. I still draw the characters on occasion (and I enjoy it!), but their story is simply on hold for now.
