Every once in a while you are lucky enough to have a dream come true.
Last night I got to have one of mine come true. I was lucky enough to get to see Idina Menzel in concert.
If you aren't familiar with her, she was the original 'Maureen' in 'Rent' (and did the movie), she originated the role of 'Elpheba' in 'Wicked' for which she won a Tony...and if your idea of 'art' is the boob tube...she also played 'Shelby Corcoran' on 'GLEE'.
She is one of the most amazing performers I have ever seen. Giving a dymanic, funny, thoroughly entertaining show.
But, the dream that came true for me, was not just seeing this amazing performer in person. It was having the opportunity to hear her sing the amazing 'Defying Gravity' from 'Wicked' in person.
For a theatre geek of my generation, this would be the equivilent of hearing Barbra sing 'Don't Rain On My Parade' live or Judy sing 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'.
Some twelve hours later, I still have goosebumps.
What a fantastic way to begin my favorite month of the year!!
