Sean and I have our birthdays three days apart in June. Pam discovered the musical “Wicked” was playing in Denver on the birthdays’ weekend. She began her birthday surprise with the help of Perry. They had secrets but Sean and I never noticed!
Perry and I went to the loft to eat a delicious brunch prepared by Sean and Pam. We hung out for the afternoon. That evening we had plans to eat dinner at a restaurant and have birthday ginger cake after.
Pam knitted while Tai soaked up some rays on her lap. Later, she told Sean it was time for him to dress for dinner.
Sean left the room and returned saying he was ready to go!
Sean did a better job on his second trip to the bedroom. He and Pam are standing outside their loft building in downtown Denver.
We continued on to the restaurant, ate wonderful food, had our usual fun time, and began our walk back to the loft. As we approached the Denver Theatre Complex, I noticed the crowds walking towards the area. I noted to Perry that there must be a big production playing that evening.
He told me “Wicked” was playing. This is a play we had talked about seeing but missed the last time it played in Denver. I said, “Oh, that’s too bad. We could have gone this weekend.”
Pam suggested we cut through the Complex to avoid the crowds. I was busy looking at the stylish clothes some of the ladies were wearing. I turned to see Sean looking at something in his hands. Suddenly Perry gave me a ticket to “Wicked”. I exclaimed, “Oh wow! When do we get to see it?”
Perry, “Tonight!” I was so excited I couldn’t believe it, exclaiming, “We get to see it NOW?”
We loved the musical. My favorite character was the Good Witch because she was very funny and performed a lot of physical comedy. The costumes were elaborate. The female chorus wore skirts designed with several layers of different fabrics. The set was built with a Steampunk theme. Go if you get the chance!
