This was the first show I ever saw. I had always wanted to see Wicked and got tickets as a Christmas gift. We had seats on left side of the mid-balcony. The seats were actually very close. The show was really amazing. Dee Roscioli was on as Elphaba. She was spectacular. Annaleigh Ashford was Glinda. She was so FUNNY! I've never laughed so hard in my life. She did the splits during "Popular". When Dee went up during "Defying Gravity" it looked so amazing. I was in awe the whole show. The show we saw was the 4th to final show of the Chicago production. I would put more but I don't remember much since it was almost 3 years ago. I give the show a 10/10 :)
I did not stage door since I didn't even know what that was! :(
