During our honeymoon some 3.2 years ago, the Bo & I managed to land ourselves cheap, good matinee tickets (well, when you’re a tourist, you’ve all the time to line up for affordable tickets right?)to watch Broadway Musical ‘Wicked’ at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. We didn’t know what to expect initially – as this was relatively new in our radar vs. the other broadways that we’ve been familiar with, Phantom, Lion King, Chicago, Mama Mia, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Les Mis among many others.
What we did know was that we enjoyed ‘Wicked’ thoroughly and was humming away to the songs that were sung throughout the rest of the trip.
So when we got wind that ‘Wicked’ was coming to Singapore earlier this year – we knew we had to get our hands on ’em tickets to re-live the experience. To be honest, we expected a wee bit more out of the musical (read: vocals) but turns out that Baby Chungkin enjoyed it a lot because whenever upbeat music/drums were played, I could feel him practically bouncing & kicking away in the belly to the beat. And his movements would actually subside (to an almost stop) when it was dialogue time. Hah! This boy sure knows how to appreciate musicals!
