WICKED

Though it might have nothing to do with saving money(believe me).. I had to post about my trip to Boston with my daughter yesterday.


We took the train to Boston and had a great time. When we got into the TD Garden it was wonderful. We walked over to Fanueil Hall and had a bite to eat before the show. We sat and enjoyed lunch and then walked over to the Boston Opera House for the 1:00pm Matinee. The theater was opulent! There was tons of stuff to buy, but decided to by pass this and head to our seats with a bottled water. Jessica did buy a Program with beautiful pictures in it and it was 20.00.



The show began. Now, I knew nothing about Wicked,,,not the music or the story. It was wonderful. The costumes were great. The music was powerful and the story... poignant. I loved it and the smile on my daughter's face said it all!!
After the play was finished we went back to Fanueil Hall, had a dessert, cannoli, and walked back to the train. Picked it up and had a drink on the train ride home. Back in Portland at 8;15pm... a fantastic finish to a perfect day!!!
I'll never drive to Boston again...the train ride made it easy and relaxing. Thanks Jess for a great day and for being a super, wonderful, fantastic daughter!!!
