When Kyle and I heard that Wicked was going to be touring in Minneapolis, we immediately went to the box office and got our tickets. Our early start was well rewarded when we were able to score amazing seats: eighth row back on the ground floor! Even though we have seen Wicked multiple times, it changed the whole experience to be so close to the stage. I don’t know if we will ever go back to balcony seats. It was well worth the extra money.
In addition to the amazing seating experience, when reading through the program, I noticed that one of my classmates from BYU was in the show. She was a part of the ensemble, as well as being the understudy for Elphaba. I loved being able to have a personal connection to a performer. It was a fantastic night for both of us. So good that I am still singing the music in my head.
