Wicked is mostly, family friendly which can be hard to find sometimes in NYC. The songs are so fun. The writing is very witty. My husband doesn't like musicals and he loved Wicked. He said it was the best he had ever seen.

I'm pleased that this is the show I chose for my very first Broadway show. I was blown away at the talent on the stage. These Thespians now how to bring it! Tuesday night performance and the place was packed. So impressed. I'd definitely see it again!

I am not a big play person, but this was on my daughters bucket list. It should have been on mine. What a show. The songs, the sets, the storyline were all elite. The show was very funny and I wasn't expecting that. If you have time to see it, you will be happy you did

Show was simply amazing. I already went to London's show but NY's show was even better. Cast was awesome and the tone of the show was more theatrical and humorous than London's. I recommend it to every New York's travelers.
