Wicked has not lost any of its popularity since its debut back in 2003. This musical still brings in huge audiences at every venue it visits worldwide. Some theatre patrons love Wicked so much that they have seen it several times. The music, choreography, costumes and story are incredibly enjoyable for all who see Wicked in person.
Wicked is based on a novel by Gregory McGuire named “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” This novel is parallel to the blockbuster movie that baby boomers grew up with called “The Wizard of Oz.” In the days before the VCR and DVR, “Wizard of Oz” enthusiasts would get so excited whenever they learned that the movie would be on TV.
The musical is different from the original movie, however, they both have similar themes. Wicked tells the story of how two inconceivable friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North. They have completely different personalities and points of view. Elphaba has green skin and is socially uncomfortable, while Glinda is beautiful in every way. The plot of the story begins before Dorothy’s arrival to Oz and continues on after she comes from Kansas. Many references are made to the characters, cities, happenings from the original movie.
The original actors and actresses in Wicked’s first run were Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda, Idina Menzal playing Elphaba and Joel Grey as the Wizard of Oz. The musical was so popular on Broadway that it ended up being a touring production and it has visited just about every major city in the United States along with countless countries around the world. This production has won a plethora of awards over the years.
