Wicked Awesome!

So we did indeed go to see Wicked. It was awesome! Elphaba and Fiyero were both amazing. Dave- who had never seen Wicked before- was worried (because he had pulled a late-nighter at work the night before) that he might get sleepy and miss something. That wasn't an issue. =]

We went out to dinner beforehand at a little French bistro across the street from the theater. Of course it was packed with the pre-theater crowd, so by the time we were finally seated at a table we were stuck ordering from the appetizers and sandwiches to get our food quickly enough to be able to still make the show. We both got a Croque Monsieur-- the French version of a grilled cheese sandwich. As if it wasn't evil enough with all of the amazing French cheese and butter, they add ham and white sauce drenched over the top. Yum!

Funny exchange over ordering appetizers:

Me: I've always wanted to try foie gras! The waiter said they could have that out quickly, so why don't we get that for our appetizer?
Dave: What exactly is foie gras again?
Me: Fattened goose or duck liver.
Dave: That sounds disgusting. Let's get something yummy like escargot. [He was in earnest, folks. Seriously, I've had escargot and it really is yummy-with all the garlic and melted butter- if you can only forget what it exactly it is that you're eating... which is hard to do when it is a slimy brown blob.]
We ended up getting toasted bread with a cheese spread and a salad.

I am "Wicked" jealous. I need to see some theater. Glad you had fun. :)

So glad you had a great time! I love that show...I hope I can see it again sometime!

And both foie gras and escargot I don't think I could actually eat.
