Wicked The Musical Comes to Marcus Center For the Performing Arts

Wicked tickets for Marcus Center
I'm in line, waiting for my chance to buy Wicked tickets for the Marcus Center in Milwaukee. Someone is singing a song from the performance. She's about three people behind me, and I'm not digging it. Why do people insist on doing that?

These are the same people who blurt out the lines in a movie theater, just before the actor on the screen does. I'm not there to hear some Midwesterners off key version of a song from the Wicked soundtrack. I'm just there to buy my tickets. If this person knows the words to a song by heart, why are they once again going to the performance?

On CDUniverse, I'm scanning the reviews of the Wicked soundtrack. There is not one single bad, or mediocre review. One review starts with "OMG!" typed three times. Two reviews down we have an "Oh My Gosh" spelled out. Is it that inspiring? It's just a damn CD. Oh well, some folks will buy anything I guess.
I'm now listening to the song No One Mourns the Wicked. It sounds like your typical Broadway song. Everyone is trying too hard, the cast all want to be noticed. Yawn. One Short Day is the best example of over singing I have ever heard. Why do people fall for this stuff? Why am I even in line?
