🎶 “What is this feeling. So sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!”. 🎶
I vividly remember that bright summer day back in 2006 when I first truly feel in love with Broadway. It was a Wednesday and I was getting ready to see my first ever Broadway show: Wicked. Ever since I was a kid I had a special connection to The Wizard of Oz. And after watching Idina Menzel’s speculator 2004 Tony’s performance, I knew I HAD to see Wicked as soon as it opened in Chicago.
12 years later and my love for the theatre has only grown stronger. Even though Wicked was the first Broadway musical I saw, my love for Broadway started much earlier. I guess you could say I got my love of Broadway from my mom. Back when she lived in London (which is where my older sister was born) my mom saw the Original West End productions of Les Misérables and Cats.
