The million dollar streak hasn’t finished with “Wicked” just yet – though they broke the record just a few weeks ago for garnering the most gross in a week’s time on Broadway, the national tour is doing just as well as it travels through the States this year, as “Wicked” time in Cleveland equally pulled out all the stops. More than 93,000 Ohioans paid nearly $7 million to see the Broadway show during its four week run, reports Cleveland.com, the third time this magical show had visited this northern Ohio city. In total, Cleveland has earned the musical that is adapted from Gregory Maguire’s best selling novel $19.3 million in ticket sales for New York producers, a feat of sorts in this economic state. The first time the Wicked Witches of Oz flew through the stages in Cleveland was in 2006, followed by another appearance in 2008 and again during the past four weeks in 2009, having left on Sunday. The Playhouse Square earned just as much business, as did the surrounding neighborhoods, according to a Clevevland State University study, which additionally stated that local works and businessess ancillary to the theater were earning just as much as “Wicked” producers.

As for the woman who was thrown out last week? Kathleen Holmes, 50, was released from jail on a $2,500 bond on charge of felony assault after having a fit during the performance.

Katie Rose Clarke as Glinda

Katie Rose Clarke is a veteran of the “Wicked” stage, not only does the actress know the role like the back of her hand – as she spent two years performing the role of Glinda in the first national tour of the production – but now she’s back, re-rehearsing the lines, stage position and wardrobe changes as she returned January 14, 2010 for the production in Gershwin Theater.

“Wicked” opens Wednesday and runs through Jan. 10 at the Providence Performing Arts Center, 220 Weybosset St., Providence. Tickets start at $53.

Who would have thought that in its sixth season on Broadway, “Wicked” would enjoy the biggest weekly box office gross in Broadway history? But that happened a couple of weeks ago — just over $2 million for eight performances. No one had ever broken the $2 million mark for a week before.

“In the film business,” said “Wicked” producer Marc Platt, “it’s what we call an Eight-to-Eighty. It’s a show that appeals to the broadest possible demographic.”

Wicked” might not be a great musical, but it is a great night of theater.

Wicked Proctors Theatre Tickets

Wicked Proctors Theatre Tickets

The national touring company of “Wicked” is at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady for a month-long run and the extravagant production shows why the musical that opened on Broadway in 2003 to less-than-enthusiastic critical views has turned into one of the most popular shows in Broadway history.

“Wicked” is entertaining, provocative and romantic. And, as if it needs more, it has an intriguing premise that forces you think differently about a cultural icon. It uses a beloved story — “The Wizard of Oz” — and turns it on its ear without being offensive to even the staunchest supporters of the original film. At the same time it mutes the darkness of Gregory McGuire’s novel, upon which this show is based, without causing its fans to rebel.

The genius of the show is that all this political intrigue and rebellion is counterbalanced by a couple of love stories. One causes conflict between Glinda, Elphaba and the handsome Fiyero. A case of unrequited love between the crippled Nessarose and the Munchkin Boq causes pain for both. Hard choices must be made and no one seems destined for happy-ever-after.

A lot of fun in the second act comes from seeing how beloved characters, like the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the flying monkeys, evolve through Elphaba’s magical powers. Also clever is discovering the reason for the Kansas tornado that brings Dorothy to Oz and why the magical shoes get their power.

The performances at the Thursday night press opening were impressive. Indeed, Elphaba was performed by Carrie Manolakos, the lead’s standby. If she’s an understudy, I can only imagine the skills of the normal lead, Marcie Dodd. Making the role her own, Manolakos plays Elphaba more vulnerable than dynamic. The approach costs some of her numbers their angry power, but it does make the character more sensitive and brings a tenderness to the romantic songs.

Helene Yorke is a delight as Glinda. It’s actually a more complex role than Elphaba as Glinda is both vain and vindictive as well as caring and brave. Yorke exploits the comical shallowness of the woman without negating her more valuable assets. And she sings enchantingly.

The tech is impressive, with most of the mood set by intense dramatic lighting. There are times where the lyrics of some songs are difficult to understand, but with some of the throwaway songs that’s no loss.

Maybe “Wicked” is a great show as well as great theater.

There are a number of reasons why Broadway tickets are so high priced. One of them is that a large number of ticket brokers buy show tickets well in advance and create scarcity. Then they go ahead and sell these tickets at 20% to 30% profit.
