Well, I've sat in the pit with a musician during the tour. I was taking organ lessons, and my teacher was one of the keyboard players for the San Diego show during the tour. So, he invited me to sit in the pit with him during the show. It was neat. The tour uses a smaller orchestra than the Broadway production (the Broadway production has to have the orchestra a certain size because of union rules), but on the tour they use synthesizers to replace some of the instruments.

I play trumpet in the Wicked musical that will be shown here in the Philippines. Today is our first rehearsal together with the Australian musicians. It was fun and exciting!
