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.”
See it if Complex female protagonists, portrayed by wonderfully talented leads. Spectacular staging. Catchy tunes.
Don't see it if choreography and costume design could look tacky and overblown at times. the show mainly rewards movie/Oz fans. felt a little too long.
See it if You enjoy sweeping, all-the-stops-pulled-out productions. Over-the-top costumes and design to create a beautiful production.
Don't see it if You prefer a telling closer to the book. (A version with more overt political themes would be fascinating!)
Also Any production that passes the Bechdel test is a magical thing. <3
See it if If leagaly blond crashed in to OZ you would have Wicked. Tween teen friendly. Great sets & coustumes. Fun songs. Book so so. Very dated now

Don't see it if You want to show people that you're too hip to see this pop-culture phenomenon, and that you're strictly a downtown theater connoisseur.
See it if You enjoy being swept away by clever songs, amazing costumes, and lots of fantasy. There are a few 'nods' to the original Wizard of Oz.
Don't see it if You're expecting to see The Wizard of Oz! This is the prequel, and the songs are nothing like the movie.
See it if you like Wizard of Oz and want to know the backstory.
Don't see it if you are annoyed by filler. Half the score is amazing, but the other half is really bland. I would recommend this if they cut 30 mins.
