We're going to see "Wicked"...

...but not like we'd hoped. Thanks to subscribing to the theater's e-mail newsletter, I got an offer to buy tickets online before they go on sale this Friday. Okay! Well, it seems the good tickets are already gone, so we scrambled around and finally found a show with a pair of halfway decent seats together — during the one midweek matinée. Oh, well. It looks like our local Oz group isn't going to be able to go see it together. Maybe the next time it comes to town — and I strongly suspect this will be like The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables, touring for years to come. Heck, Wicked is already making return appearances in some cities on this current tour, and has spawned a company in an open-ended run in Chicago, with word of another in Los Angeles. And it opens on the West End in London this fall.
