So I decided to take Mum to London to go and see one of my favourite West End Shows: Wicked The Musical!
I have been to see the show many times before, so off we went to Peterborough station and caught the train, just in time for the matinée performance that day, WOW!! It was magical, I had forgotten the feeling that the show gave me, I am still singing all of the songs in my head now as I write this!
One of the main reasons that I love this show, in particular, is that the show celebrates difference and anyone can be anything that they want to be if they truly put their minds to it, I just find it so inspiring and it captures you from the minute you sit down and look at the stage.
Mum absolutely loved it too, I have made sure that she has listened to the soundtrack right from the year that I first saw it when it originally opened in London’s West End in 2006, she got in to the soundtrack and then of course it was only right that she saw the show after listening to the soundtrack for so many years.
Throughout both my two schools I saw Wicked and as I was always the outsider in school, the character of Elphaba has always reminded me of myself, because every now and again someone would show up and want to change me and my looks into someone I know I’m not and I’m still not to this day.
So just be who you are and who you want to be and just remember no one can change you!
If you haven’t seen the show yet, go and book you won’t regret it, hands down best West End Show I’ve had the pleasure of seeing!
