Wicked playing at Orpheum Theatre now through September 19.

Back by “Popular” demand. Entertainment Weekly calls Wicked “the best musical of the decade,” and when it played Minneapolis in 2006 and 2008, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, a cultural phenomenon and was just named “the defining musical of the decade” by The New York Times.

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete and completely satisfying new musical in a long time” (USA Today).

Orpheum Theatre is located at 910 Hennepin Ave., West Minneapolis, MN 55403. From here Wicked is moving to Madison, WI, playing at Overture Center Madison from September 22 to October 10, 2010.

Witchy tale wows crowd at Boston Opera House. Jackie Burns and Chandra Lee Schwartz are Amazing in Wicked at the Boston Opera House.

By now, seven years into the “Wicked’’ phenomenon, it is clear that this revisionist take on “The Wizard of Oz,’’ one of the most potent myths of the 20th century, has established a pretty potent 21st-century myth of its own.

Boston Opera House is full with the response of the largely female audience to “Wicked’’. While it’s an uneven production, the reality is that each iteration of this musical rises or falls on the strength of its Elphaba, a.k.a. the Wicked Witch — and in Jackie Burns, this “Wicked’’ boasts an Elphaba who could go broom to broom against Idina Menzel herself. Whether she is belting out a truly stunning version of “Defying Gravity’’ to close the first act or cracking your heart by confessing, brokenly, that “I’m Not That Girl,’’ Burns brings a richness of emotional coloration to the role of the green-skinned outcast who discovers that she has supernatural powers. The rest of the cast does not match Burns’s level of radiant intensity, and there are some dead spots between the musical numbers.

Chandra Lee Schwartz plays the other key role, Glinda as a kind of cross between Reese Witherspoon’s Elle in “Legally Blonde’’ and Teri Garr’s Inga in Mel Brooks’s “Young Frankenstein.’’ Luckily for this “Wicked,’’ Jackie Burns retains full possession of her powers of song, from start to finish.

Wicked is performing at Boston Opera House in Boston, MA Through Oct. 17. Tickets $38-$108
