Wicked - A Dream Come True

As an author, I've always been enchanted by stories that whisk me away to fantastical realms, where dreams come true and thrilling adventures await. Ever since my childhood days spent immersed in Frank Baum's "Wizard of Oz" books, I felt a deep connection to Dorothy, the Emerald City, and the enchanting land of Oz. That's why "Wicked," the Broadway musical, has held a special place in my heart. The idea of delving into the backstory of the Wicked Witch of the West and uncovering how she came to be evil intrigued me.


For years, attending a performance of "Wicked" had been a cherished dream—a dream that finally materialized this weekend. From the moment I first heard the captivating melodies of "Defying Gravity" and "For Good," I was captivated. The rich storytelling, vibrant characters, and powerful themes of friendship, acceptance, and empowerment resonated with me. As someone passionate about storytelling and a firm believer in the importance of inclusivity, the notion of someone being ostracized simply for being green hit me.


Despite my admiration for "Wicked," the opportunity to experience it live always seemed out of reach. Whether it was due to conflicting schedules, financial constraints, or other obligations, I went years without the chance to see if the story I imagined would align with what unfolded on stage. Nevertheless, I clung to the hope that one day, I would have the opportunity to immerse myself in the magic of "Wicked" firsthand.


That day finally arrived when I had the chance to journey to the Detroit Opera House, where "Wicked" was being performed. With anticipation and excitement, I embarked on this adventure with a dear friend, eager to witness the story that had captured my imagination for so long.


Even before the curtains rose, I found myself transported to the magical world of Oz, where witches soared through the sky and unlikely friendships blossomed in the face of adversity. From the breathtaking set design to the electrifying performances, every aspect of the production surpassed my wildest dreams. I laughed, I cried, and I became completely engrossed in the magic.


"Wicked" served as a reminder of the impact storytelling can have. It challenged preconceived notions, inspired hope in the face of darkness, and reaffirmed my belief in the power of a story. Seeing "Wicked" only strengthened my resolve to write stories that resonate with readers of all ages. Stories that are mirrors and windows.


As I left the theater that night, I felt as though I were descending from the sky in Glinda's shimmering bubble, forever changed by the journey. But I also gained a newfound respect for Elphaba and the struggles of not quite fitting in.


The dream of seeing "Wicked" had now become a cherished memory, etched in my heart as proof of the magic of believing in yourself. My journey was an adventure and a source of inspiration.
