If you are a regular reader, you will know that I love the theatre. Myself, Mum, Auntie & cousin are regular theatre goers and we’ve seen many shows, some have been hilariously funny and others sad, I’ve left the theatre a blubbering mess on many occasion.
Some shows have been better than others but I can honestly say, I’ve never seen a bad production.
The Wales Millennium Centre is such an impressive venue, both inside and out. I enjoy trips to Cardiff Bay, it’s such a lovely place, with plenty to do. The Wales Millennium centre even got into the spirit of things and is lit up green for the Wicked shows!
We weren’t originally going to see Wicked, it didn’t appeal to me and I thought it would be more for children, how wrong was I?!
A friend of a friend couldn’t make the show, so Mum & I bought her tickets at a discounted price. We were sat in the upper circle, we had a good view but we prefer to be seated in the stalls (yeah, yeah, seat snobs). We would have like to have seen the costume details and the casts facial expressions.
Glinda (Emily Tierney), tells the story of her friendship with the not so ‘Wicked’ green witch, Elphaba (Nikki Davis-Jones). Both Emily and Nikki are perfect for the roles, with the most beautiful voices and personalities. They were both kind enough to sign our programs at the end of night (yep, we hang around the stage door to get signatures after every show). There are twists and turns to the story but I won’t spoil it!
The rest of the cast were equally as good, the songs are catchy, if you went to see the show a second time, you would be singing along.
I only wish we had bought our own tickets, we could be sat in the stalls, up close to all the action and details.
If you enjoy the theatre, you should see Wicked. It’s a must see show and you won’t be disappointed, I might even go back for more……
