Now in its sixteenth year on Broadway, this all-ages musical spectacle tells 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.”

Don't see it if ....overrated, bland story, non engaging.

Don't see it if you can't bear another musical legend that is a Broadway myth about its quality.
See it if you will buy into the hype. Wicked has very poorly written songs and a lame plot. If you don't want to think about how poor this is...go.
