TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES FRIDAY 7/6/12

The show started thirty or so minutes later than scheduled due to technical difficulties, but I wish they would have completely fixed the problem before they started the show. Throughout the entire show there were mic problems with mainly the instruments and volume control, but there were also a couple vocal mic issues. The first few seconds of As Long As You're Mine were cut off sadly. I paid $190 for our two tickets, so I'm sad that the show wasn't the best it could've been. Technical difficulties aside the show was great! Glinda was hilarious and all of her quirks were absolutely perfect. Madam Morrible was splendid as well. Elphaba had the capability to be amazing, but the changes she made to her songs shouldn't have been made. Maybe she just had a bad night. Fiyero started off iffy with Dancing Through Life, but he finished strong. He was perfect in As Long As You're Mine. Basically it was worth seeing, and it would've been more enjoyable had I not known what to look for.

PRETTY MUCH COOKIE CUTTER

Sets were great but the story and action were focused too much on long scenes that featured the signing of the soloists. Don't think it was exactly kid friendly...especially from the balcony. Thought it was pretty much a " cookiE cutter" musical.

FORGETTABLE

The music was uninspiring. The story line felt as if the playwright got bored and slapped/crammed everything else together in the second half. One of the main characters was on tune only about 75% of the time. The theater was uncomfortably warm the entire performance. For what I paid and the 5 hours in the car to get there, the only redeeming aspect of the experience is the time I got to spend with my son and daughter in law. Parents….if you don’t mind a play opening with adultery, a father who hates his daughter because the color of her skin and the subjugation, manipulation and dehumanizing of men the entire play by all means take your children.

DON’T GO

This “musical” is totally awful. Ridiculous plot, obnoxious characters, and cast members who scream instead of sing. I would have left at intermission, had I not paid a fortune for the tickets. There are three positives: excellent pit orchestra, beautiful costumes, and gorgeous sets. These few good points don’t make up for the fact that “Wicked” is a worthless show. Don’t waste your time and money.

What we thought

ENCHANTING Brilliant timeless

The performance of 'Defying Gravity' at the end of Act I will give you chills.

Almost 13 years after it's debut, you still can't go wrong with Wicked, a perfect adventure for the whole family! Eugene Lee's scenic design coupled with Susan Hilferty's costume artistry will have you engrossed in their magic throughout the production.
