It was everything that I hoped it would be. I have never laughed out loud in a Broadway show as much as I did with this one! AND, I love that I knew most of the songs prior to going... although I'm fairly certain my parents and the people around me certainly wish that I had not. My absolute favorite is Defying Gravity, which is the namesake of this post. I just love the lyrics and the moment when Elphaba and Glinda are singing this together. It is just so powerful, for lack of a better word. My favorite line:
"I'm through accepting limits cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change but till I try, I'll never know. Too long I've been afraid of losing love I guess I've lost. Well if that's love, it comes at much too high a cost. I'd sooner buy defying gravity. Kiss me goodbye. I'm defying gravity.And you can't pull me down!
All in all, great night and great show! I highly recommend!
