A spectacular show, in every sense!
Wicked the Musical is the spectacular story of the witches of Oz, a prequel to The Wizard of Oz. It is not a pantomime or particularly aimed at kids, but a fantastic and enduring musical.
How did The Wicked Witch of the West meet Glinda the Good (The Fairy Godmother)? Was she born evil or did she become evil, or is it simply her actions that are perceived as evil or is it malicious newspaper gossip? The story attempts to explain this in its own magical way.
It is a fun-filled frivolous piece of theatre, for sure, but it also carries underlying moral questions. The fact that the witch is “green” touches on race relations. Is the ‘good’ fairy really ‘good’ or does she just employ excellent P.R.? How do two girls vying for the affections of one man interact? As friends or enemies? Is beauty superficial? What one society finds acceptable, another finds appalling. This show only scratches the surface but it can make you think.
Putting all that aside the sets are simply spectacular and the costumes are so clever and intricate. No expense is spared and the attention to detail is superb, the special effects are amazing. I just loved this show as did my family – my daughters have been back to see it time and again. The musical score is fantastic and the songs such as ‘Popular’ and ‘Defying Gravity’ are memorable. I promise you will be blown away.
