Last night, my wife and I went to a nice dinner and went to the musical Wicked, here at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. Now, I want to tell you that I am not a “musical” kind of guy – I have seen a bunch of them, but the last one I really liked was RENT. So I was afraid I was not going to like Wicked at all, but boy was I wrong. Although I could do without many of the quieter, slower numbers, it was hilarious, sad, dynamic, and incredibly political. Talk about drawing similarities to today’s political climate – wow. But anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and if it is (or will be) playing in your city anytime soon, I highly recommend you check it out. You won’t be disappointed – almost every guy I know that has seen it has thought the same as I did before going, and came out loving it.
Overall, between dinner and the show, I think we spent about $250, but it was worth every penny. Experiences are worth a lot, as I have written about before.
