Post Who really is the biggest Wicked fan?
Think Guinness Book of World Records. Who could be listed as the most obsessed fan of the show? Is it you? Curious to find out who it is.

How many professional productions of Wicked have you seen?
How much money do you estimate you have spent on tickets?
How far have you travelled to see the show? Have you ever flown internationally JUST to see it?
Do you own every item of merchandise available from the merch stand?
Do you have any Wicked themed tattoos?
Do you have any children named after Wicked?
Do you have any pets named after characters in the show?


Just thought it would be fun to have an obsessed Wicked fan competition.

I'm curious what flying internationally to see 'Wicked in Oz' was like - did it seem glamorous to you :P?

How many professional productions of Wicked have you seen? Three, all London West End ones. Kerry Ellis twice (one time being her very last Elphaba performance) and once with Alexia. Seeing it again in February.
How much money do you estimate you have spent on tickets? First time I didn't buy my ticket, it was a present. But then I got the last ever Kerry ones... about £30? Then Alexia ones £15 (approx.) and then the February ones were only £10 (cos I booked so early). In row H or something too!
How far have you travelled to see the show? Have you ever flown internationally JUST to see it? 3 hours in a car. I would die to see the broadway version!
Do you own every item of merchandise available from the merch stand? I have the Grimmere, Defying Gravity Tee, I love Oz Tee, Wicked Hoodie, Programme, and the Bracelet. I also have Stephen Schwartz/Defying Gravity: The Creative Career of Stephen Schwartz, from Godspell to Wicked book and The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. I still have alot more to get :)
Do you have any Wicked themed tattoos? Nope, I can't get tatoos because I want to be in the West End one day and having tatoos could make me (8) Limiteddddddd...
Do you have any children named after Wicked? I don't have children.
Do you have any pets named after characters in the show? If I ever get a new cat, I plan to call her Elphaba :)

As for the questions, I've seen the show 4 times.
I don't own a great deal of official merchandise but...
I have used my own children as Wicked characters.
I have a fan site, and it might classify me as the most obsessed fan...
it's at:
www.IAmElphaba.com

Enjoy...if you like.

Three, all at the Gershwin in NYC! Seeing it again in London this summer and again on Wicked Day [Oct. 30] in NY again.

How much money do you estimate you have spent on tickets?
Considering the fact that I already have the tickets for upcoming shows, about $1,500...oi vey...

Will be doing that this summer for Wicked London!!

Do you own every item of merchandise available from the merch stand?
A few t'shirts and posters...hoping to get the Grimmerie next time I go!

Do you have any Wicked themed tattoos?
No, but I do tend to write quotes and lyrics on my hands with Sharpie :mrgreen:

Do you have any children named after Wicked?
I don't have kids, but if I did, I definately would!!

Do you have any pets named after characters in the show?

No, but I nickname my friends after characters...does that count?? <|: )

Do I get points for having a picture of every actor who has played Elphaba, Fiyero, or Glinda on my bedroom wall, along with which city they played in?? I know; I'm helpless!!

Post Re: Who really is the biggest Wicked fan?
Higher amounts of money spent and owning a lot of merchandise does not make you a bigger fan. Some people are richer than other, some people live closer to theatres etc. However, my sister has seen it five times (and has bought tickets for three or four others too) and is planning two more trips. I've seen it three times and am going on at least one of these planned trips, and we both own a few things.
