Off to See the Wizard
Last week, I went to see the Wizard of Oz musical. It was so much fun. The crazy thing was people kept saying "oh, I didn't know Wicked was in town!" and I had to explain, "No, just the regular old fashioned version where good is good and bad is bad!"
Fun fact: even though I am from Kansas and generally love musicals, I have only watched the Wizard of Oz movie in it's entirety one time. I had never seen it until I was in high school and had my wisdom teeth out. I got to rent movies to watch all day and I grabbed it from the grocery store video rental place. Remember when that was a thing? So that's the only time I have seen it. There was an occasion in college where some friends tried watching it with Dark Side of the Moon synced up, but we stopped after about 15 minutes. It was just weird. Although, the munchkins dancing to Money was pretty cool.
Another fun fact: people think it's funny to call you Dorothy and say "we're not in Kansas anymore" when they meet you and find out you are from Kansas. If you meet someone from Kansas and want to make this joke, just be warned. They have heard it a million times and probably don't think it is funny.
Anyway, the show was great, and I was happy for another excuse to dress up a little bit.
