a WICKED kinda weekend!

ever since gregory maguire's wicked: the life and times of the wicked witch of the west was published, it single-handedly changed my life and the way i thought of every literary character moving forward! :) i quickly fell in love with the story and everything about it... from its darker greener (not rosier) lens and its radical new evaluation of one of the most hated characters in all of literature - it was brilliantly inventive!

named after the main character in the beloved classic "the wizard of oz," i've always felt a parallel with dorothy gale growing up. but that was all quickly BS after maquire showed us that maybe the much maligned wicked witch of the west really wasn't as wicked as we were made to believe! #teamELPHABA haha.

the book is the basis to the tony award-winning broadway production... and when they were going to be in chicago, i couldn't pass up the opportunity and not go! so when my girlfriends were looking for a reason to getaway to the windy city anyways, we decided to get together and make a weekend out of it - and i'm so glad we did! it was amazing!
