Wicked!!

For those of you who don't know, we are in London! It is great! We have made it our (expensive) mission to see a live show each night. (To benefit you at home, of course, as we will be more than willing to recount every detail in January). To date we have seen the Lion King, Wicked, The Nutcracker, and, tonight, the Blue Man Show. One show that I can't wait to praise, however, is Wicked. It was so so so so amazing! I don't know how much of my opinion is based on the fact that we saw it front row, but either way: I loved it! We waited in line for about an hour as the box office releases 25 front row seats for 25 pounds every day at 10am to those willing to bear the cold outside in line. We were front row, just left of the centre! Jon is laughing at me becasue I am just as excited to write about it now, as I was to see it. The music was incredible (soundtrack for Christmas, anyone?), the acting was great, the costumes and props amazing. Again, I am out of adjectives...and time. Anyways, go see Wicked! (or atleast the website)

Lucky guys. I'm going to book tickets for Wicked when it's in TO. Did you rob a bank or was Jonathan "hiding" this money for a rainy day?
Miss you

We know all about standing in line. . .however, standing in line at Honolulu Stadium almost 24 hours in advance was much warmer than London for sure!! Yep. . .we just got back from our 14th U2 show! Slept under a palm tree - unbelievable!!!
It was all so worth it as we got front row in front of Edge!! There was at least 1000 people who slept out under the stars that night!!

Can't wait to share stories!
Sounds like your shows have significantly more "cultural substance" than ours but you know U2 is our "culture" LOL
Hugs and Love
