hokey cokey - thanks smile

I think we paid £60ish each for ours - we had seats near the front though.

Kerry Ellis plays Elphaba - agree Batters, her voice is amazing.

Have the soundtrack in the car atm - tis fabbo and the boys love it! Ds3 (3) shouts with the song 'THE WIZARD WILL SEE YOU NOW!' ha ha!

god it was pants

We've got the soundtrack.
And we love musicals.
But we don't love this, for some reason.
Will we love it if we see it on stage?

God, it is bloody brilliant on stage. I'm not a fan of musicals and arty farty theatre type stuff. This is fab though.

I loved it anyway. I must say, I think I'd be most disappointed if I went adn it wasn't Kelly Ellis in the lead role though because she really is great.

Gobbledigook Mon 10-Sep-07 13:43:06

IT's 1007??
It's a story - y'know, like The Wizard of Oz?!

Cappuccino Mon 10-Sep-07 13:43:30

if it was 1007 we would be okay talking about witches cod

has anyone read the book? how do they represent the scene where they bludgeon the bloke to death? Is there a song?

and the bit where they kill the baby bear?

please supply lyrics

Gobbledigook Mon 10-Sep-07 13:46:00

Eh? Bludgeon who? Fiyero? If so, there is no scene for that except Elphaba sings a song about it.

Kill the baby bear? Hmmm, I can't remember that happening! THere is a lion cub that Elphaba and Fiyero rescue.

Gobbledigook Mon 10-Sep-07 13:46:32

oH, i MEANT kerry ellis - I knew that was wrong as I typed it!!

Cappuccino Mon 10-Sep-07 13:48:43

oh I see they have Made It Nice

I did wonder as I read it how it was meant to be escapist fiction if the romantic interest was bloodily murdered in a flat

yes a bear dies while Fiyero is having a coffee

nice

musical production totally different to book IMO, more made of relationship between glinda and elphabah and bizarre fiyero love triangle. plus they make BOQ into the tin man and some other bits that i won't mention because they're a bit spoilish.

we all loved it. £20-ish each for tickets last easter, up in the gods. ds2 is determined he will play Elphabah when he grows up. had to paint him green last halloween.

Gobbledigook Mon 10-Sep-07 13:51:00

Oh, no, the bit about the bear isn't in it.

It's not meant to be realistic cod - it's about the Wicked Witch of the West!! Ha ha!
