so i went to see wicked last night with my mom and cousins, and it was just as amazing as the first time i saw it. wanna know a secret about me? i'm a sucker for musicals. i love every single one of them. i can't wait to go see the little mermaid on broadway. although i'm nervous that i'll start singing from the audience. [part of your woooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrld!!]
and i digress. don't worry, wicked is NOT the prune.
what people wore to see wicked is my prune. theater attire does not include sweats. i was appalled with some of the outfits that i saw. granted playhouse square is not broadway but as far as regional theaters go you can't top the square and your should respect that.
one of my fondest memories as a child is going to playhouse square with my family. my sissy and i would have on matching dresses with bows in our hair, and we would stare out the car window looking at the big city while asking about "the dragons" that lived in the sewers. it was an event. and i think everyone thought of it as such. back in the day people dressed up to go see shows and unfortunately that isn't the case anymore.
last night you saw anything and everything in regard to attire.
normal: a cute jewish grandmother in a mink, a trendy downtowner in a black dress and boots (me), a stylish couple in dress slacks, heels and a nice sports coat
not normal: starter jacket (i'm not lying), black sweatpants with a over sized gray t-shirt, mexican tuxedo (jean on jean action)
please, stay classy cleveland. friends don't let friends wear jeans/sweats to the broadway series at playhouse square.
