It might not be expected that a punk rock legend like Glen Matlock might take a venture towards a mainstream entertainment outlet like NYC’s Broadway theater, but stranger things have happened in the world.Trust us, the longer you live, the stranger things might seem and the more things you will accomplish in life, whether its the minuscule or the massive. Well, as a wise man once said, the answer to all your questions is money. A friend came across some valuable tickets to see Wicked the Musical here, and was unable to attend.
Considering the fact that people line up outside the Gerswhin theater to get these tickets for cheap, who would we be to turn them down? We aren’t really the musical theater type, even though we make our living making music.
Of course we could have found a family of tweens to bestow them upon, but we thought it would be possible to enjoy it, so why not? The singing and dancing really goes diametrically opposed to our own genre.
So no, Wicked the Musical did not fit with our preconceived notions of an enjoyable experience, but then again…
I’ll have to say, it was quite an experience and a very impressive demonstration of talent.
For starters, I’m an England native since birth something I’m truly proud off.
As a musician, I have had the opportunity to visit different countries as well as explore the unmatched beauty that some of these countries posses.In the many countries I have visited and performed, USA has always being my best preferred destination perhaps due to the serene environment, security and the ever friendly people.My last visit to the states came a few months ago when I had a performance in California.The actors and actresses, I don’t even know their names, but they were all extraordinarily talents in their portrayals of the characters.Furthermore, the story itself, which backtracks through a history of the Wizard of Oz, before Dorothy and all that, is actually quite intriguing.I’m considering picking up a copy of the Novel which the show was based on.
