I picked up One for the Murphys because a bunch of my friends on Twitter were reading it. They have yet to steer me wrong in terms of book selections. So I read it, and I loved it. There are two videos below. One is my book talk. The other is Track 18. When you’ve finished reading this book, come back and listen to Track 18, and then the reference will make more sense.

Track 18 from the Wicked soundtrack, “For Good.” In the video below, you’ll see the rehearsals for this song, and will get to hear the directors talk about the emotional impact of this particular piece. At the end, you’ll get to see a bit of the show with Idina and Kristin in full costume as Elphaba and Glinda.
