As Someone Told Me Lately

This week an extraordinary number of people are finding this blog via search engine searches related to the musical “Wicked” — Idina Menzel, Kristin Chenoweth, wicked the musical, The Wizard of Oz and so on. You know, that musical I haven’t really mentioned much. Oh, wait!

Anyway, I scoured YouTube for clips on a couple of nights for my nightly inspirational, tear-inducing film clips and found the following. You know, for funsies.

Just a warning, if you are into musical theater, are at all emotional these days or are just a nerd in whom I may find a kindred spirit, make sure to grab a few tissues for Kristin Chenoweth’s final performance of “For Good” in this first clip. It’s very sweet.

How awesome are Idina and Kristin? Shoshana Bean is amazing as Elphaba, as well, in a different way. This girl is power. Here’s her final performance of “Defying Gravity”. I like her interpretation at some spots.

And finally, I just thought this was a cute concert version of Idina singing “Defying Gravity.” (I know, I should have picked a variety of songs but I’m a bit partial.)

This clip just shows what a great performer she is. :-)If you’re not as nutty as I am about all things “Wicked” or just musical theater in general … well, thanks for loving me anyway.
