WICKED RAISES THE BAR FOR ALL BROADWAY SHOWS
I have been going to Broadway shows all my life plus I have enjoyed regional theatre, both professional and community, for just as long. I have acted in and directed many community theatre shows, in addition to presiding over a community theatre. I have a teaching degree in theatre. So what? My point is - I am really fussy about what I see. When you are a "theatre person" you tend to pick shows apart and analyze them rather than just enjoy them. I was given Wicked tickets for my birthday, and thought I was prepared for the experience, having read the novel twice and heard the soundtrack a few times. But, WOW. This was by far the most amazing show I have ever seen. Wonderful production values! Incredible book! The way they tied in the novel with the movie was nice. The music was wonderful. We saw the understudy at our performance, and she was as great as the rest of the cast. Now, all other shows I see are compared to this one and Wicked soars above the rest. It is a lifechanging event.

A 'WICKED' MUSICAL
One of the best musicals i have ever seen..and trust me i have seen plenty. From the moment i stepped into the theatre i fell in love with Wicked. Being a lover of the Wizard Of Oz i thought i knew everything i needed to know...i was extremly wrong. Wicked is filled with surprises beyond your wildest dreams. I laughed, cried and smiled as the characters told the wonderful story. The music was just majic, the singing was amazing, the stage was wonderful and the characters were amazing. i could see wicked over and over again. infact i am going again!! For all the people reading this that are deciding to go i thooughly reccomend it. If i flew half way around the world to see it it must be pretty good. People young and old alike will fall in love with wicked. i know i did. I dragged my whole family..and now they are still singing the songs. i had great seats. you can see the stage where ever you are. Do yourselves a favour..and see wicked THE BEST MUSICAL EVER PRODUCED. :) thats all xx

BELIEVE THE HYPE!
I tend to be wary of anything with the amount of hype Wicked has received, but on a recent business trip to NYC I went with a colleague and was very pleasantly surprised - awesome show, one of the best I've seen. Great fun.

WICKED "DEFIES" EXPECTATIONS
So I read the book way before the musical came out and I loved it. I didn't feel it could have been adapted to a show and after seeing it now 5 times, I realize that it can't! Amazingly, the production crew used the book and its great plot and work and reformed a more workable stage show. Changing the mood a bit but staying true really shows how much work went it. Seeing it with the original NY and London casts and three sets of replacements, I've been amazed time after time and there is something to see each time. Everything about this show is enjoyable and its everything a great Broadway show should be!!

WICKED WAS AMAZING!
I would highly recommend seeing this show. It is truly amazing. Even though I couldn't see the show when it was OBC, it still was great. I hope Idina Menzel joins the show again--now that would be brilliant. If your looking for a good show, for all ages-- SEE WICKED. Get the soundtrack to become familiar with the show too.

THE BEST EVER!!!!!
Being the OZ fan that I am I was leery, to say the least, of anything other than L. Frank Baumn's originals......I am SO thrilled tht I took the chance! I've found new respect of each character, and now the "Wicked" Witch is my FAVORITE!!!!! Moving songs, thrilling action, true freindship and romance....what else could anyone ask for? Don't walk, RUN to see WICKED, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!!

Just saw Wicked 3/27/11 - it blew me away! I came with my husband and daughter. Front Row Balcony - could not get any better. The songs were fantastic. We left the theatre truly amazed because there were twists and turns with the plot. I would recommend putting this at the top of the list of shows to see. We purchased the program,poster,t-shirts,and CD. My daughter and I are playing the songs in the car and singing along with it. We will be seeing this show again and again. The actors/actresses were unbelieveable in their dancing, singing and being suspended above stage was eye popping. You will definitely enjoy this if you are an OZ fan and even if you aren't you will leave talking about the music and strength of the voices.
