MUST SEE

I have seen this show 3 times on Broadway...First time with Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth. I loved, loved, loved it....I am going to see it again when it comes to Charlotte....This is a must see for all ages.

WICKED IS "AWESOME"

I've seen the show 3 times now, and have seen the NYC broadway production. The Norfolk show is just as great as the NYC show.

5.0 star rating Jim Cunningham from Denver

MAGICAL

I have seen this show twice (both at the Buell) and am thinking about seeing it a third time. The music is fantasic, and the characters and story line are strong and entertaining. It is especially enthralling for those of us who grew up with the Wizard of Oz.

THE WICKED

The Wicked The Texas Performing Arts Program The Wicked – was spectacular and even more, The depth and exceptional skill of all performers – was a compliment to the musical score. The sounds of orchestra with the powerful singing – all balanced The Wicked story to tell, That old tale of the Wizard of Oz and the witches – did on the audience cast a magic spell. Act One I did comfortably observe in the auditorium – where extravaganza on eyes and ears fall, But for Act Two I had special need to be in the lobby – for the pangs of indigestion on me call. But in both places the performance gave great pleasure – by precision and beauty that prevailed, Yes Bass Concert Hall with production of The Wicked – the very best of all my senses assailed. The astounding amalgamation of the performing voices – with special effects of staging so precise, Whether in auditorium or my observing from the lobby – Texas Performing Arts well worth any price. The Bass Concert Hall with the best of accommodations – lend an atmosphere oh so unique, Thus Wicked production went well beyond all measure – gave honor to Performing Arts mystique.

ENCHANTING!

What a wonderful performance! I loved all the characters and performers. The lighting and sound were perfect for the Morris Theater. I was captivated throughout the whole show, and I fell in love with Elphaba (Jennifer DiNola), Glinda (Hayley Podschun) and Fiero (David Nathan Perlow). Terrific casting. In the first half I was grinning ear-to-ear, charmed by the performers and story. The second half was more dramatic, but just as enthralling. I learned the music before seeing the show, and I believe the performers interpreted the creative talents of the authors, composers, directors, choreographers (etc.) to perfection. It was nice to be entertained to levels beyond all of my expectations. Kudos to all involved with bringing this talented troop to South Bend!

UNBELIVABLE

We haeded for our seats at the very top in the cornor. When our group was asked if we wanted better seats. So we walked down to the second row. I was freaking out, by the first song I was crying. Wicked is my life, and watching it from the second row where I see the actor/actress face's was a fairtale. But at the end during curtain call I starte t cry again. And I realize that this is what I what to do. You see I been acting for 6 years but show made me see that I really what to act for the rest of my life. Thank you!!!

FROM BOOK TO LIVE PERFORMANCE...A DAD'S PERSPECTIVE

I attended the performance this afternoon at Bass Hall in Fair Park in Dallas with my wife daughter and her husband. We were not disappointed, the music, performances, and sets were exceptional. On a personal note, as a dad who chose to pick up a book from her daughter's personal library, WICKED, and then to read it as an emotional connection to her while she was on her first year away to College...the performance provided us another connection we (I) will treasure. Once again, we enjoyed the artists, storyline, and performances and would recommend attendance.

WICKED THE MUSICAL AT THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC

Just saw Wicked 7/12/13...loved it. Great acting and singing. Wonderful scenery. John Davidson, singer played the Wizard. Haven't seen him since the 80's when he had a TV show. Loved him then and now. He is a great entertainer. The women who played Glinda(good witch) and the Wicked witch. Were absolutely wonderful...great voices/singing. A wonderful show/evening. My husband and I enjoyed the show very much.

BEST SHOW EVER!!

This was my first time seeing Wicked and it far exceeded my expectations. The cast was AWESOME and did such an amazing job. I will definately see this show again. The show catches your attention from the very first minute! I saw this play at the Murat Theater in Indianapolis with my best friend and everything was great from the lobby to the play! We were seated a the top of the 2nd balcony (1 row from the back) on the right side and our seats were perfect. I can't imagine there would be a bad seat in the place. The music was brilliant and the cast was perfect. Thank you for making my night such a memorable one with my best friend!!

DROP EVERYTHING AND GO C WICKED

You deserve this great performance. It is worth stopping the world to be a part of a magnificent performance. The whole production, every piece of it, engulfs you as though you are worthwhile to receive this gift of quality talent. Do give yourself this gift of being part of an above average Broadway performance in every aspect. You will walk away enjoyably numb because you just experience professional perfection.

I got dragged along with my wife and her family to see the show. Not typically one of my favorite activities. I was amazed! Entertained to say the least what a night. There is no show that I have ever seen that I would sit through two nights in a row. Until now! Loves it beyond words

BEST BROADWAY SHOW

My school went to see Wicked while we were up there. I thought that I wasn't going to like it and I wanted to go see Les Miserables, but i am so glad my teacher made us go to see Wicked. I wanted him to take me back the next day and watch it all day. I could not stop talking about it. I hope they make it into a movie or record the performance as played on stage and sell a copy of that. I would buy it!! I loved it!! Thanks for the great show!! :)

5.0 star rating Howard Lenow from Sudbury, Massachusetts

SPELLBINDING, BEAUTIFUL VOICES, GREAT ACTING

I have never seen Wicked, but I have listened to the original sound track over and over. My wife and I went for opening night and we were both thrilled that the actors had such powerful and beautiful voices and that the staging was so creative and spectacular. This was one of the best broadway shows I have ever seen, (aside from Hamilton, of course), and I could not recommend this production more highly. Our seats were second row, dressing cirlce and were perfect. Just go. You won't regret it.

5.0 star rating Kerri from Boston, Massachusetts

AMAZING AND UNBELIEVABLE PERFORMANCE

Saw this at Boston Opera House! Its an absolutely breath taking performance. Glinda the witch was entertaining and eye capturing. Elphoba was absolutely eye stopping, what a talented performer!!!

INCREDIBLE!!

This show was SO F*IN GOOD. I expected to enjoy it, but boy were my expectations exceeded. As I watched it I thought ohhhh...so THIS is why people love this show, hahah. I'm a decade late to the party. Anyway, this particular production was absolutely superb and honestly perfect. Not one complaint. Both Elphaba and Glinda were AMAZING; singers, performers. Glinda is absolutely hysterical. The sets and lights are amazing, and the ensemble really brings the show to life; the first act especially, just constant entertainment, very alive and dynamic. I had a smile on my face the whole time. Go see this show!!!

LOVED IT!

What a fantastic show! I've been a lifelong Wizard of Oz fan, and this show was just incredible, the way you got to experience the other characters. The sets and costumes were top notch, the two ladies in the leads were incredible, especially Elphaba. It really was one of the best shows I've ever seen.

5.0 star rating Cathy Comfort from Coeur d'Alene ID

IF YOU ONLY SEE ONE MUSICAL, MAKE IT THIS ONE!

This musical is fast-paced, gorgeous, full of pathos and humor. Dialogue is superb, songs are breath-taking. Takes the simple old Wizard of Oz to a depth and breadth that I wouldn't have thought possible. It's the WofO for grown-ups. But not just grown-ups. Saw people of all ages in the theater, and everyone was enthralled. If you only see one musical in your lifetime, make it this one! A true gift for the senses.

5.0 star rating Becca from Omaha, Nebraska

IN CHICAGO

2008-Chicago-I was speechless and overwhelmed. The character development and how the performers portrayed them was phenomenal! Hoping to see in Omaha (my hometown) this Spring. I would recommend dining outside of the "old market". Parking is expensive and the Orpheum (while gorgeous and newly renovated) is downtown.

EXCEPTIONAL

This show is remarkable, humorous, and the singing is phenomenal. It was my first musical and it is totally engaging. It allows you to view The Wizard of Oz from the witches point of view and it correlates well with the original story. I would highly recommend this show! It's a must see and I will definately go see it again!

This was the 5th time I have seen the play with all different casts. All of the performances on November 1st were fabulous!!! Jon Robert Hall was the best Fiero I have ever seen! Always relevant and inspiring. If I lived in GR, I would be at the Wicked Lottery every night!!

5.0 star rating from Cincinnati, Ohio

AWESOME SHOW, BUT WHAT TIME IS IT ???

Saw the show tonight for the first time and loved it. Elphaba was the bomb! I have to recommend this to all who haven't seen it before. You've got to see it once, though friends returned 8 or 9 times. Now, I have a question for the stage manager at the Aronoff Center. Forgive my absolute nurdity for even noticing, but the prominent clock on stage has written dead center SIDERAL TIME. Why the mispelling? It should be SIDEREAL TIME, though I guess most don't notice because most have no clue what SIDEREAL TIME is. Simply defined, it's a measure of time used by astronomers that is based on the stars, not the sun (as in our 'solar time'). It allows astronomers to better track movements in the sky.

FANTASTIC

Saw this show at the Keller Auditorium in Portland. We see several shows here a year and my wife is very finicky about sitting in a crowded theater with rowdy patrons that take up more than just their seat, don't respect personal space, are loud and entitled. So she is not very enthusiastic about coming to the theater, so it was quite a shock when she said how impressed she was with this production and that it was by far the best play we have seen. I thought the staging, singing and dancing were outstanding as well as the timeliness of the plot. You wonder if the play write had a time machine and could see our future leaders and their press people. As well as scapegoating and lying. Oz may not have done anything for the Tinman but this Oz is very inspiring and entertaining. Defy gravity and see this play.

5.0 star rating Kimberly. from Little Rock, Arkansas

LOVED IT!!!!

Wicked far surpassed anything I was expecting. The costumes and set design were spectacular. The music was wonderful, and the humor (particularly Glinda) was a fun surprise. I think the day that I was there, 1/19, the understudy played the role of Elphaba. I simply cannot imagine anyone doing any better. (Glinda too!!) It is by far my favorite musical. This show is FABULOUS!

5.0 star rating Stuart from Baltimore, Maryland

ELPHABA SHINES BRIGHT

Everyone can relate to the internal turmoil that Elphaba experiences. From number to number she takes the stage and shines. We sat in the mid-mezzanine right and had a great view as the mezzanine overhangs the orchestra by about 2/3. I would agree with a previous review that some of the microphones seemed to be turned down a bit in the first set. Although some may hesitate to buy tickets off broadway, this is a broadway show that shines. After the show at the stage door, the cast was glad to see about 50 people staying to greet them.

4.5 star rating Jenna from Fernandina

WICKED IS GREAT - PATRONS NEED TO DRESS

The theatre is sacred and the performers work hard to give us a great show - the least we can do is respect them and dress approriately to the theatre - this is not a BBQ or rock concert - Jacksonville needs to dress better - no jeans, flip flops, large women wearing sleeveless anything.

WICKED 2012

I saw the performance at the San Diego Civic Center. The characters are very engaging and entertaining. The songs were so powerful and sung so beautifully that I had goose bumps through the entire show. There were some mishaps with the sound, but the outstanding performances outshined any mistakes. My favorite character was Galinda (or Glinda) because her physical comedy was incredible, not to mention hysterical. If you were a fan of the Wizard of Oz and do not mind seeing another interpretation regarding the history of the characters, this is the perfect show for you. Sit back, be amazed, laugh and enjoy the show!

WICKED AT THE MAJESTIC THEATER IN SAN ANTONIO

This was my second time seeing Wicked, first was in Houston. I have to say it was a lovely venue but a little smaller than what I was used to. We had an understudy to an understudy, as I understood it, for Elphaba and she was off a little in the first Act on some songs, and not on cue with Galinda. In the Act II she did much better. This happened in Houston to, but it was the first understudy. I know sometimes this cannot be helped.

3.5 star rating Nicole from Norfolk

2ND TIME AS GOOD AS THE FIRST

Saw the show last night in Norfolk. I had seen it at the same location on it's previous tour to our area. Loved it as before. Elphaba was a powerful singer, Glinda was hilarious in a "blonde" kind of way. Thought this wizard was better than the previous tour, but thought the ensemble was weaker overall.

GIRLS, LEAVE YOUR BOYFRIENDS AT HOME.

School gossip, love triangle, Twist ending. It's got it all. A little too long and boring for this fellow. Second half much better paced than the first... Wife and I both had a hard time making out some of the lyrics. Didn't impact my enjoyment, but it did for her. Girls, leave the guys at home and have a great night out. You'll both have a better time.

WIMPY WICKED

Seeing Wicked tonight for the second time, fourth for my wife. This incarnation had all the fabulous sets, lights, musicians, but the entire performance was drained of its energy by the sound personnel. I checked max dB levels (not counting the wizard vocal effects) with band and vocals combined they were topping out at 85dB. That's at a climax of a song! During dialog I had readings in the upper 60's. We were literally leaning in all night to hear both band and vocals. It was insane! I could actually hear the compression on individual vocals and what sounded like a heavy compression on the vocal group. That's not all bad, but the whole level needed to come up 6dB and the vocals more like 9dB. Really disappointed. BTW, I was sitting in the fourth (last) row of the loge 15 seats off center, so there should have been plenty of sound there. The sound that was there was clean and clear, just way to soft. Come on man, find the master fader and turn it up!

DID NOT COMPARE TO BROADWAY!

I saw "Wicked" on Broadway and it was my all time favorite! I had told my daughter about it and when it came to Pittsburgh she bought us tickets for Christmas. Well, I was sadly disappointed! It feel flat compared to the one in NYC! My daughter couldn't imagine why this was my favorite show and I explained it just wasn't the same. Since then I have talked to others that felt the same way!

FAIR NIGHT OUT

Saw the show in Boston tonight. Show was fine. Sound mix was poor and distracting. Gah-linda's mannerisms were spot on and Elphaba had a lovely voice. Show runs a wee bit long for my taste. Your millage may vary.

WICKED (TOURING) IN SAN JOSE

A little disappointed... 5 of us went 8/24/19, 8:00 show. All of us had a hard time hearing the words in the songs- it was plenty loud enough.... almost to loud - we all had a hard time comprehending the lyrics in the songs. Maybe it was where we were seated? Anyway it made the show a bust... all the actors did a GREAT job and the sets were very nice. Also, the very end is kind of confusing... I won’t give it away, but all in all it was a fun girl’s night out.

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.

2.0 star rating Anonymous from Seattle, Washington

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.

1.0 star rating S Brenk from Salt Lake City, Utah

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.

1.0 star rating from San Antonio, Texas

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.
