Tuesday 16 July
5:00 pm: Dinner at La Fenice Tuscan Chophouse, a short walk (10 mins) from the hotel. Three course excellent dinner directly across from the Theatre
7:30 pm: See “Wicked” at the Princess of Wales Theatre
The show is about two young witches: Elphaba, whose skin is green, and Glinda, who is blonde and beautiful. They dislike each other at first but soon form an unlikely bond. The musical follows them from their girlhood friendship and explains how Elphaba became the Wicked Witch and Glinda became the Good Witch. It all happens before Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
Wicked is very funny and engaging. It's a story about love and friendship, loyalty and betrayal, heartache and redemption. You will love the music and choreography. The pace of the musical, the dialogue and dance numbers - you really get wrapped up in all of it.
Wicked wraps up the story of Oz nicely. You don't have to be a fan of musicals or even like the Wizard of Oz movie to enjoy Wicked.
Cost of dinner and Theatre: $199.00 CAD or $155.00 USD includes taxes and gratuity.
Laurie and Barbara have both seen the show and even if you have, you will want to see it again and again! Toronto has an excellent reputation for Theatre and this will be and outstanding performance.
