Off to See the Wizard

Today I'm headed to San Francisco with my friend Thomasina to see the musical Wicked.  From what I gather, it's the backstory to the Wizard of Oz--what happened before Dorothy arrived.  I hear it's a great show, so it should be fun.  I'm familiar with one song: "Popular."  I played piano accompaniment for a singer at the opening of a local sports park a few years ago. 

Thomasina and I will take BART to the City, and we'll do a couple of other things while we're there.  We're talking about going to The Ferry Building.  I've been there once, and Thomasina has never been.  We'll figure out the rest of the day as we go.

By the way, my daughter Lisa is obsessed with the Wizard of Oz--has been since she was a little girl.  She's really jealous that I'm going to the show.  She lives in another state, and I told her if Wicked comes to a theater close to her, I'd pay for a ticket.  It's the best I can do for now.

  1. Ooh, I want to know what you thought! I took my family (kids + significant others) to Wicked a couple of months ago and they LOVED it. The ending was so wonderful and unexpected!
