gonna be wicked...

the heart sister took me to see wicked this evening. i had such a lovely time. we wanted to see wicked the last time we were in new york...but alas, tickets were sold out. yet, when the heart sister found out that wicked was coming to san francisco, she was all over planning our outing. she booked the tickets months and months ago.

before the show this evening, we decided to meet up in the castro for a leisurely bite to eat at le med ...


and do some much needed catching up over their meze special.


this is quite a lot of food. i was also experiencing some deja vu as the heart sister and i have spent many hours hanging out in the castro over the years. i think the castro is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. after we finished up our meal....

we headed over to hayes valley for some window shopping at the chic chic boutiques. after a bit of walking and looking around hayes valley,


we took muni to the theatre.


the show was quite a lovely performance. the costumes were pretty amazing. we had great seats in the orchestra so we were able to see quite a bit of detail. neither one of us has read the book so we didn't have any expectations re: the story line. i didn't read the book on purpose as i wanted to be surprised and just enjoy the show "as is". there was one particular song that i liked so i found it on youtube to share with you.....the video i found is the instrumental version with lyrics.....



it wasn't until 11ish that we headed back onto muni.

i couldn't resist taking a shot of an ad for wicked at the station. somehow, it all seemed quite appropriate.
