So . . . I need some advice.
Do I buy season tickets in order to be guaranteed tickets to Wicked next spring?
Here are the facts:
* The run of the show is about two weeks, with two performances held for season ticket holders.
* I have never seen Wicked.
* The other two performances in the package are Legally Blonde and The Color Purple--both musicals.
* I can't just buy ONE set of season tickets, but have to spring for both. (Plantboy needs some culture.)
* Even mediocre seats average about $50/show for the series. You do the math. (And NO, you were not told that there would be no math.) I know it sounds like I must be independently wealthy to be even contemplating this, but it is not the case. (I'll probably put it on credit card and hope to sell a novel before then . . . or maybe I'll raid the boys' mission fund. Are you picking up on my sarcasm? 'Cause I'm layin' it on pretty thick.)
* Our population center is pretty small, and the show is running this spring for a few weeks in the largest city near us, so we may not get a lot of traffic from other areas to our smallish venue.
* I am not willing to sell my first (or second or third) born child to get tickets otherwise. Okay, scratch that last. It really depends on the day. In a moment of weakness, perhaps. . . .
