I can not express enough how much I loved Wicked. This was the first Broadway show I had ever seen. Seeing Wicked made me realize that I had a love for Broadway shows that I never knew I had. Can not wait to see this show again!

from Wicked
Winner of over 50 major awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. WICKED tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”

Declared “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly and “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety, WICKED is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento.

This show is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes (1 intermission). Recommended for ages 8 years and up. Children under 5 years will not be permitted in the theatre.

I previously saw Wicked in Vancouver, BC and not only loved it then, but was hoping to see it again. This time, I saw it on Broadway and it was great. The song Defying Gravity brought me to tears this time. If you love musicals this is the show for you.

I've been going to Broadway since 1977 and I've seen dozens of shows. Wicked was the first show where I was ready to leave at intermission (but my wife wanted to see if the second half would be better-it wasn't). Usually, the opening number sets the tone and in this case, a lackluster opening scene did set the tone for a lackluster show (I was shocked from the start and it never got better) 1) the set made no sense, just a lot of gears for some reason. 2) the music was nothing to write home about; bland. 3) the costumes (other than the witch) didn't make much sense either. 4) The story made no sense. There were a couple of side stories that seemed ridiculous. 5) the few funny lines were juvenile. Overall, the story, music, scenery, costumes and choreography were not what I expect of a Broadway show. I can't believe this show lasted this long. This is no '42nd Street'.

This show has been out for some time now so I wasn't sure it would still be in fine shape. It did not disappoint! The theater was easy to get to, had plenty of escalators to take us up to the balcony. Comfy seats and plenty of restrooms. The show was spectacular! The cast was amazing and it's such a hard show to sing, they apparently have to swap about the main actors every few months to save their voices. I'm impressed!
