Jemma Rix and Suzie Mathers singing “For Good” on Closing Night of the Wicked Singapore Season (22 Apr 2012).
My first favorite song from the musical. <3
Starts from the scene where Glinda appears in the castle (file size limit by Tumblr, unfortunately!)
- Glinda(Talking about Fiyero): He’s been thinking, which really, really worries me. It all started that day Doctor Dillamond got fired. I never knew how much he cared about that old goat. Look here he is. He has come.
- Fiyero: Elphaba. I’m so happy for you.
- Glinda: Yes we are both so happy for you.
- Fiyero: Ah, listen I’ve been thinking.
- Elphaba: Yes…I’ve heard.

Dizzy Gillespie’s B-flat Trumpet, 1972This week’s Smithsonian Snapshot celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month with American jazz legend John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie’s trumpet.In the 1940s, Gillespie, renowned for his harmonic complexity and scat singing, became a major figure in developing the modern jazz style known as bebop. Gillespie pushed the technical virtuosity of the trumpet, wrote influential compositions, helped introduce Afro-Cuban rhythms into jazz and through his showmanship helped spread the popularity of bebop.In 1986, Gillespie donated this custom “Silver Flair” trumpet, which he played for 10 years, and its custom case to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Its uniquely shaped upturned bell was his internationally known trademark.Gillespie’s trumpet is one of the most iconic instruments in American music; its inclusion in the Smithsonian marks him as one of the most influential and innovative 20th-century American musicians.To learn more about the importance of jazz in culture, technology, gender and race, visit the Smithsonian’s Jazz Appreciation Month 2012 website.

The Witch took Glinda’s arm. “Glinda, you look hideous in that getup. I thought you’d have developed some sense by now.”
“When in the provinces,” she said, “you have to show them a little style. I don’t think it’s so bad. Or are the satin bells at the shoulder a bit too too? ”
“Excessive,” agreed the Witch. “Someone get the scissors; this is a disaster.”Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
