Galinda...With A "Guh"

Guess what. I have the bombest friends and family evah. Let me tell you why. Last Tuesday, two of my girlfriends here in Yucaipa, Aimee and Kristen picked me and my girls up and we were told we were doing something for my birthday...annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd guess where we went:





That's RIGHT, mah babies!!! We went to L.A. to Pantages Theater to see WICKED!!! I almost threw up all over myself. Anyway, first we got there and met with Eliza, Ashley, Mandy and Shauna Rae, and then we all 9 girls walked down to eat at this cute little sandwich shop tucked in an alleyway right off of Hollywood Blvd. People, it was so fun! Anyway, at around 7:30 we walked back to the theater in the coolest breeze I'd felt all week. As soon as we got to our seats, I just about died. If you haven't been to Pantages, you're missing out. Outside is the typical Hollywood/LA stone walls, but inside is the most ornate woodwork you've ever seen. Anyway, the set was amazing as was to be expected, the music was incredible, the seats were fantastic and Megan Hilty who played Glinda that night was so stinkin funny I was dying. Aimee said she and Kristen were crying just from hearing me laugh at Galinda/Glinda! I need to tell you, I love me some Kristen Chenowith (who is on the soundtrack/the original broadway player) but Megan also was on broadway, and now she plays here in LA. She is so freakin hilarious. Her comedic timing was so "on"...I wish she was my ringtone.

Ok so here's my favorite scene with her that somebody recorded (OoOoO! No cameras allowed!) and I'm glad they did. Observe and enjoy:






and here are Megan Hilty's best moments!!!


Oh and thanks so much to Amber for watching Harper so I could go! I am so blessed with so many good friends. Love you guys!

Mandy said...

that was such a fun night. i love love loved the show and i have been caving that little sandwich shop all week. i could have done without the nice bathroom we stopped at though!

Alli Easley said...

Oh I know Mandy, I was just thinking about that. I'm just glad you went with me. Scary bathrooms are not my favorite.

Oh and let's go do the show again before it's gone for good!

Sarah said...

ashleyO said...

oh emm gee...i'm totally in love with WALL.E.

I want one of my very own.

Ryan Nelson said...

Man I wanted to do that! Hey, guess what!?

Ryan Nelson said...

Ha I'll just tell you. I got a new blog post! Oh, and i'm getting married! And we were talking about pictures and I guess they've had someone arranged awhile ago in Phoenix which made me sad cause I'd just rather have you do them. BUT, we will be down around San Diego the week of the Fourth of July and we wanted you, if you will even be there, to take some pictures for either some engagement pictures or at least ones to have up for the reception. Its still dumb that they had this phoenix friend signed up a long time ago cause I just thought we'd use you, but I guess it makes sense because everything is in Arizona and that'd make things alot easier. But if you can we really want you to take some down in Cali if you are available. Just let me know!!!

Alli Easley said...

Ha Ryan, that's cool. Actually, I'm shooting some friends in Phoenix next month so it would have been perfect but it's ok. I'm actually going to be doing the Stucki family in July around or on the 4th in Oceanside, so call me and we'll figure it out. Don't feel pressured to use me, you guys do whatever you want.

Ryan Nelson said...

Ha no pressure is felt ha, but we really do want to. Its just a matter of coordinating everything since she's down there and I'm in Provo so its just tricky. But I'll keep you posted.
