Now in its fourteenth year on Broadway, this all-ages spectacle follows the untold true story of the Witches of Oz. More…
"Wicked" looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
"In retrospect, Wicked seems an early sign of the cultural clout which is to say buying power of a generation of girls (and now women) whose desire to see, read, and sing along with stories about female empowerment has become a snowballing trend." Full Review
See it if You want to give in to the hype or are looking for a show with decent performances, cool effects, a somewhat clever story and catchy tunes.
Don't see it if You are looking for a profound, emotional and enlightening show that leaves you satisfied.
See it if You can take a time machine back in time to seeing the OBC (preferably as a 14 yr old girl). You haven't seen many (or any) Broadway shows.
Don't see it if You haven't seen/read The Wizard of Oz. You can't stand cringeworthy made up words or cheap blonde jokes.
See it if You are a fan of the book; you like sister stories, you like over-the-top musical numbers
Don't see it if You don't like Wizard of Oz; you like songs with memorable melodies; you like tight story lines
See it if If you'd like to see a very large scale musical that has several tunes you'll recognize and LOTS going on all over the stage.
Don't see it if If you enjoy music but not going deaf.
See it if you want to be disappointed. Went into it with big expectations, and it turns to be average in every aspect-songs, choreograpgy, voices...
Don't see it if you expect greatness-it is just ok, but definitely not worth all the stir around it. Dated choreography-painful. Disappointing overall.
See it if you're a fan of the kinds of stories that tells a prequel about a villain who used to be good. If you like the Oz movie you might like this.
Don't see it if you're a fan of the Baum books, if that's the case then this show is definitely not for you. It's based more on the movie with Judy Garland.
See it if You are a fan of retellings of classic tales, like big musicals, like female main characters.
Don't see it if You don't like musicals, or don't like modern-style musicals. You were a fan of the book, and won't enjoy the changes made to the book plot.
