Back from its three year hiatus WICKED is in Cincinnati!
Oh my goodness! First, hubby and I are Broadway, musical newbies. Every show we've seen has been completely new to us, and when we found out we were going to see WICKED we didn't know what to expect. Friend's of ours said it was a not to miss show, and they couldn't have been more right.
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED, winner of 50 major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards, is the untold story of the witches of Oz. It is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
The Broadway sensation, 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, who is 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.”
With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade,” and by Time Magazine as “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage.”
My jaw was on the floor most of this show. From the set, to the superb acting, to the amazing voices. Ga-linda (before she changed her name) was absolutely hysterical, and had us in stitches! I love how the story fills in so many unknowns to the Wizard of Oz. There were so many times where my husband looked over at me and just smiled.
There is just something about a full house at the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati. When the crowd cheers, and people jump out of their seats when the show is over, it leaves you feeling amazing. Those are the best kind of date nights!
Don't wait to get your tickets to see it, shows often sell out!
