I went to see Wicked last night at the Providence Performing Arts Center. This is my third time seeing this musical, and I cry every time I see it. It’s a timeless story with a message about an underdog/black sheep, a friendship, love, betrayal…
Sitting in the theater last night, my husband, my brother, and my brother’s wife beside me, I really wished that my best friend Nichole was there with me…because I think this is the perfect show for besties to see together.
Nichole and I met online in a virtual world through a mutual friend. The mutual “friend” turned out to be a jackass, but I am grateful every day for the fact that through him, I met her. I’m a firm believer that some people come into our lives for reasons – the reason he came into my life was clear…and once his job was accomplished, he was soon gone from my life.
Nichole and I have met in person several times and text each other almost daily. I can’t imagine my life without her in it. We are so different from each other, yet in many ways, we are so alike. We have different views, different beliefs, different opinions of some things – but we complement each other.
Nichole, I love you! We need to see Wicked together. This is why:
