Wicked was Wicked

This is just a quick post to let you know how today was. We arrived in Hollywood just after lunch today. We parked at this enormous complex called Hollywood & Highland Complex which had underground parking as well as shopping, restaurants, theatres, etc. Graumann's Chinese Theatre is a part of this complex. I had heard that Hollywood Blvd. is not a very nice place after dark so we parked there because it is underground secured parking and they also have a shuttle to Pantages Theatre.We walked down Hollywood Blvd. for a while and looked at the stars. We also went into a couple of souvenier shops. Then we went over to Ripley's Believe It or Not, which was actually quite interesting. We went back to the Hollywood & Highland Complex and bought our shuttle tickets, had lunch, went into some of the shops, looked at the Hollywood sign, had ice cream and hung out. We did not go and see the footprints at Graumann's Theatre because the sidewalk was blocked off and covered up with a blue carpet. When we caught the shuttle later in the evening and drove past this area there were hundreds of people. One of the people on the bus said that it was the movie premiere of Will Ferrall's new movie "Blades of Glory". Just as we drove past Will Ferrall was standing right on the sidewalk heading towards the theatre. We had a perfect view!! Then we went to the Pantages Theatre and saw Wicked. It was amazing. We all loved the show. It was extremely well done. The show was phenominal and so was the Pantages. The Pantages was built in 1930 and was home to the Academy Awards from 1959 to 1969. Krystal took some pictures in the lobby which I will try and post tomorrow when I have a proper internet connection at our hotel in San Diego. Later days.
