Wicked Ticket Steve & I were off to see the Witches, the Wonderful Witches of Oz!

On Monday night we went to watch Wicked on Tour; but beforehand we ate delicious food (as always) at Velvet Central. We both had tomato soup to start and then gammon steak as the main.

Having booked tickets in January, I was ready to explode with excitement and it didn’t disappoint. We headed to Manchester’s Palace Theatre:

We were sat one row from the front, an incredible view of the stage. I hadn’t realised when I’d booked the tickets, I though ‘BB’ row would be further back. I didn’t take photos during the show for fear of being kicked out.

The costumes and makeup were fabulous. The props were good and the set was truly transformative.

The only criticism was that occasionally the words of the songs weren’t clear. This was with both individuals of the leading cast and with the group singing.

Wicked was thrilling, entertaining, dramatic and an absolute must-see. If you’re thinking of going to the theatre, you’ve got to see Wicked. Here’s the official trailer:
