In the last week, I saw both Wicked and Porgy and Bess on Broadway. A banner week by any standards since both shows are amazing, and feature incredible talent in singing particularly, but also in acting, and writing. Though there were a lot of high moments, the one that stuck with me the most was Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, finding her natural power and singing “Defying Gravity.”
The parallel is impossible to miss. Find your wings. Make the leap. Dare to try. Dare to dream. Try to defy gravity. Can you do it? You have to believe. And only when you believe, it’s impossible to fall.
Enjoy the clip.
