I Think I'll Try Defying Gravity- Wicked UK Tour

Ever since it was announced that Wicked was coming north of the border as part of the very first UK tour my various social media sites have turned green. On Facebook I am seeing people who I went to school with raving about it and my Twitter timeline is filled with excitement.

When I think maturely about this 'first world problem' I know that this is all good stuff. It's a good thing that people who don't normally visit theatres are getting excited about going, it's also great that fans who can't  get down to London to see it regularly get the chance to experience the show close to home. But the 6 year old only child in me has taken a major huff.

I know this is crazy because Wicked is a world wide phenomenon played in many counties and seen by thousands of people, but I still sometimes think that it's mine all mine. I first saw Wicked at a point in my life where I was really trying to figure out who I was, and I believe the green girl made a lasting impression on the outcome.

So here I sit, currently looking at photos of the cupcakes that are being given out to the first 100 people who buy their tickets. Being horrified at the prices and annoyed at the fact I can get a better seat in London for a cheaper price. And contemplating how ridiculous I am that I had to write this blog in the first place. Life's weird sometimes right?

I totally agree! Like I feel as though those of us who really love Wicked are part of a wee Wicked club and I don't want that expanding too far! *throws dummy from pram*
