  1. I love Wicked. I have seen it four times in all (three times in my hometown and one time in New York). Wicked carries my vision of everything that I want to see in a musical: spectacle, dance, comedy, positive and negative emotions in the score and strong emotional connection

      1. Cannot believe I first saw Wicked in 2006 on Broadway. The musical has changed a lot since than. Each time I see it live, I feel more and more vulnerable to the story. Elphaba is my all-time favorite musical character ever because I relate so much to her and she is like a role model to me
