Wicked, Mystere, Fantasy, Voyage de la Vie

Finally made use of the complimentary tickets to Voyage de la Vie (courtesy of Edward T). Well, sitting in the theater reminded us about all the fantabulous shows we’ve seen in Las Vegas and New York. Oh, we-miss-so-much! Now that WICKED is coming to town, I’m a little curious and keen to re-watch.

Here’s a recap (and personal review) of some wonderful shows:

(1) WICKED The Musical at Gershwin Theatre, 222 West 51st Street, Manhattan
Cast:   Sets/Props:   Costumes:   Music & Lyrics:   Special Effects:
(Attempt to keep this post relevant to Veira ;)) Bag worn to the show: Satchel Mailer Bag
Right, this is obviously biased and ratings seem redundant. Anyway, there were immense amount of beautiful talents (Fiyero’s voice – sooo dreamy) and the atmosphere was fantastic. My favorite character had to be Glinda. She’s hilarious and brings the best out of the role; watch out for the *toss toss* moments that are so precious and yet bimbotic.

The lovely playbill:

Now that I’ve posted this; noticed that the main cast are from different touring teams. Katie Rose Clarke & Teal Wicks (Broadway) versus Suzie Mathers & Jemma Rix (Marina Bay Sands). This is a good reason to watch Wicked in Singapore again.

 

Cute exit points

The truth – initially I was pretty reluctant to catch the show at Broadway for various stupid reasons, of which I find absolutely ridiculous at this point in time. Thankful that the boyfriend insisted on going no matter what and boy, it was wicked good. I tell you, mind blowing. I’ve always liked musicals since young so yeah absolutely the best so far, the other that had always been in my mind is “Green Tea” by School of Music, UCSI (I know it’s only a college production but tops the rest of the musical productions during University days and beyond).

Need I say anymore? Wicked good, MUST watch! And please do not forget, standing ovation!
