Amy and a friend from college, Michele, came out to visit us this past weekend. They are always welcome visitors at the Beard home. One of the main things that they wanted to do this weekend was to go to the Broadway production of "Wicked" in Hollywood. The three of us went on Saturday evening. Being with college students, I guess I was a bit more adventurous. We had no tickets. Instead, we went to the theater 2 1/2 hours early to put our name in a drawing to win front row tickets for $25.00. We did not win the lottery :) Instead, we were able to purchase any available seats for $45.00. This is a huge savings, since we had looked at prices the night before and couldn't find any for under $108.00. We sat on the right hand side, third row. It was an excellent show. Michele had the sound track, so we listened to it on the ride to and from Hollywood. I have to say, my whole take on the Wizard of Oz has dramatically changed. Thanks, Amy and Michele for a fun evening.
