Last night I went out and saw Wicked: The Musical. I went with my good friend, G, and we met up with her at Glenny station and had an early dinner chow down before hopping onto the train to head off to the city. We met up pretty early and therefore got there quite early (even though a bunch of trains were cancelled for some unknown reason), and early means, about two hours or so before the show was due to start. We bumped into A on the train and trained with her until she had to hop off at MC, then G and I ended up getting off at Southern Cross and decided to go down to Docklands and watch the Winter Fireworks, since it was a free viewing and a way of killing time.
When we got there it the sun was about a set and not a whole lot of people were there yet, so we got a good view – as in we were in the first line of viewing. I ended up taking a panorama since it was really pretty. The iPhone never does sceneries justice unfortunately.
It wasn’t until about 7PM when the fireworks started, so we were chilling at Docklands for about a good half an hour before the fireworks show started. It went for about 10 minutes so I took a crap load of photos, but here are some nice ones I got during the event.
After that we took a tram down to Collins Street to get to the Regent Theatre. I swear if I ever shop at Collins Street since it’s all the top designer brands on that street, I’ll actually feel so proud of myself lol. Anyway, when we arrived at Regent Theatre everyone was entering in already so it was perfect timing. I decided to buy a merch shirt since I want to make it a thing when I go to concerts/musicals etc. – like I have to buy a souvenir from there no matter what. I ended up purchasing the black shirt with the well-known Wicked photo on the front of promotional posters with the two main characters. Anyway we got seated and this was what the stage looked like.
The show soon started and safe to say I was amazed at the entire performance. I absolutely loved the musical. Seeing it live in comparison to watching it on YouTube or just listening to the soundtrack alone was just so different and so much better. Spending money on experiences than clothes that night was certainly the right choice, because by the end of the night I was giving them a standing ovation. So yes, safe to say I loved the musical. I kinda honestly didn’t want it to end either.
