Blue Monday - Review: The Wizard of Oz Musical

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you had a good day celebrating the resurrection. I love Easter, and we had a super day.

This past Friday afternoon, we went to see Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz. We enjoyed the live music, dancing, and acting.



"They added three extra songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber [that] better tell the story. For example, they wrote a song for the Wicked Witch." You can find this report here.


Quick! Pop Quiz!



What color is Dorothy's dress?




Right! It's Beautiful Blue! However, when she's in the Emerald City, she changes into a green checkered dress! Then, later in the play, she reverts back to Blue. Of course, the Blue looks best! (You knew I'd say that, didn't you?)

Happy Blue Monday!

My Easter was quiet, because I'm feeling too well to be in bed, but too miserable to make Easter dinner, so we're going to try it tomorrow! love the Wizzard of Oz. The grand daughter of the author (Osma) taught me a specific therapeutic technigue with children.

Glad to hear you had a fun time (both Easter and Wizard of Oz) And now have a Happy Blue Easter Monday! My blue post will be up soon.

I love a quite Easter. Jesus was in pain for saving us, so for me, church matters.

Then, Spring means busy time for us.

TY for hosting.

Of course a blue dress looks best! Yet I can understand the transformation to green in the Emerald City. Glad you enjoyed the production--it sounds fabulous!

That would be great to see a live show. Wizard od Oz was one of my favourite movies.

I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan, but haven't seen the theatre version yet.

Thanks for hosting, Sally. "The Wizard of Oz" is a classic, whether it's a book, film or musical. Glad you enjoyed the Easter break and the live show.

Hope you had a great Easter as well. It was on my birthday this year! We enjoyed the weather which cooperated in Seattle, and there was some BLUE sky.

Hi Sally, hope you've had a lovely Easter! I'm intrigued about the three new songs for Oz. I was always terrified by the Flying Monkeys!

Have a great week, Sarah :-)
