So Jenn and I caught Wicked on Saturday at The Fox, having never heard a note or read a review. Three things are abundantly clear now that we’ve experienced it:

  1. We’ve got to see the show on Broadway
  2. I’ve got to read the book
  3. We need the official cast recording soundtrack

I’m no spectacular judge of talent, but I do know desire and enthusiasm when I see them. The cast of Wicked enjoyed the hell out of their performance and the audience was rewarded in spades.

Elphaba was played by the stand-in who completely owned the stage and the actress playing Galinda couldn’t have been a better combination of drunken Sandra Dee and firecracker.

Again, I wasn’t familiar with the source material in either form (Novel or Broadway) but I left not only entertained but wanting more.

  1. If and when you do see it on Broadway, you are going to be like, “OH MY GOD!!! This is 1000000000000000 times better than the show at the fox was!!”. Not because they sucked or anything, but because man, that is broadway!

    And get the cast recording. WOW.

    I was lucky enough to see the show on broadway with the original cast. I absolutely loved it.

    I think the show at the Fox was as close as I have ever seen to matching the original.
