The Wicked Lottery
What have we been up to lately?
I am a little ashamed to say that even though we'd seen it twice already, David and I got a hankerin' when we heard May would bring the show to Louisville. My birthday money was put securely away. We held our breath, waiting to see if Jude might come a bit early.
But when opening night came and the little guy hadn't made an appearance, we headed downtown with our theatre friends, the Lyons, to see if we could win the Wicked Lottery. (Lottery = 2.5 hours before the show you put your name in the 'hat.' At the 2 hour til curtain mark, they pull 10 names. Those 10 people have a chance to purchase 2 tickets in orchestra seating for $25. The tickets would normally sell for $250+) It's how we ended up on the front row in NYC. And it's how we ended up on the 3rd row last week for the opening show.
We're still singing the tunes.
As for Jude, not even the striking voice of Elphaba motivated him to join us:)
