First off, it's pronounced LOO-uh-vuhl, not LEWIE-ville, or Lewis-ville. A very nice woman at the hotel gently corrected my pronunciation. The "honey"s and "dawlin"s and "sweetie"s will flow from the lips of the locals - young and old. They mean nothing sinister by it - they are just some of the friendliest folks I have ever met!
It took me two years, three hours, 165 miles, and one time change to FINALLY see "Wicked" - and it was totally worth it! I've loved the soundtrack for over two years, but the show in New York has been sold out every time I've been there. When I moved to Nashville, I got a notice that the touring company would be performing in Louisville, so I bought a ticket the minute they went on sale. If you haven't seen it - GO SEE IT! I got goosebumps!
5/23/10 - Came back for a "Wicked Weekend With Boyd"! Came back with my boyfriend to see Wicked again - my third time, his first. Had fun showing him some places I visited the first time, and we even found some new ones...
There is so much to see and do in Louisville - I didn't know! I managed to fit quite a bit into my little weekend jaunt, but I look forward to going back and staying longer to explore even more!
- Pros:Lots to see and do - and they have a Hard Rock Cafe!
- Cons:Gets freakin' COLD in the winter!!
- In a nutshell:Rollin' on the (Ohio) River
