 Went to see Wicked at the Kennedy Center last night.  Kinda hated it.  No really.  I liked the song Popular and the costumes.  I read a review that said it was a musical for people who didn't watch musicals.  I guess.  All I know it that the book (not the novel, which to be honest I never finished) was...full of plot holes and the lyrics were...trite and incomprehensible for most of it.  I liked the woman who played Elphaba more when she was just acting than singing (but that's likely because I didn't like many of the songs), and the guy playing Freyio was...terrible.  The woman playing Glinda did a great job being a Kristin Chenowith double.  My favorite was the woman playing Madame Morrible--great acting and singing from her, but that might be because I could actually hear her.  I did love the costumes.  

You know what would have improved it?  If it were a lesbian love story between Glinda and Elphaba.

At the end, there were several people crying (really????) and the cast got a standing O.  I just...bleh.  Did. Not. Like.

I think I need a good musical to clear my brain now.  Some of my favorites are: Kiss me Kate, The Book of Mormon, Sweeny Todd, Avenue Q, Into the Woods, or Fiddler on the Roof .

What musical do you suggest??
