I had never seen a play on Broadway before and this absolutely floored me. I can cross this off my bucket list but not before I see it again. This musical was absolutely INCREDIBLE!. The musical range of the singers was stunning. It was all about timing and talent. You will be captured by the first moment and clapping all the way to the end. BRAVO Wicked!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea what to expect. The story was amazing, the scenery was perfect, and the performers were out of this world. I would definitely go see this again and as soon as we left, we downloaded the soundtrack. It was very funny (which was unexpected), heartfelt and entertaining. I recommend Wicked to everyone who asks about it! Totally worth the cost of the tickets!
