Wicked - The Musical in Manila 2017


"No one mourns the Wicked"

I watched Wicked last Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 with my cousins at The Theatre at Solaire. This Musical is definitely one for the books and it brought tears to my eyes because it was that good. Like, I got goosies all throughout! SOBRANG GANDA, grabe!!








This musical is actually my first foreign theater musical experience and I've been hearing about this play years ago, David Archuleta even posted on social media that this musical is amazing! Well, I love Wizards of Oz but I've never researched about the story of Wicked because I want to be surprised inside the theater. I want everything to happen inside the theatre, though I've already heard songs from the play since I had an office mate who loves Wicked and she plays it in the office.

So anyway, I can say that among all the spectators who watched Wicked that night, it impacted me greatly. I was moved to tears because they were so amazing! Everything was truly, well, breathtaking, I must say. And I was so, so inspired to go back to performing and dancing again. Like guys, after the first act, I was like, "have you seen one of the performers? she was wearing pointe shoes!". haha. But nobody else noticed it though. I swear everything was fantastic! From the stage design, costumes, songs, plot, and the cast! The cast were all amazing, I love how they embrace their characters!
