Wicked Musical currently Stops in San Francisco CA for almost 4-week run. Wicked will be performing at Orpheum Theater SF through February 17, 2013. Wicked musical play at Orpheum Theater reviewed by Robert Hurwitt – Here is the review:

Elphaba, the green girl, flies high and sings with beautifully modulated power as she becomes the Wicked Witch of the West in the touring production of “Wicked” that opened Thursday at the Orpheum Theatre. Glinda the Good matches her vocally and dazzles the audience with charm. And that may be the bigger story.

Understudy Cassie Okenka rose from the ensemble to don Glinda’s blond locks, pink frocks and sunnily self-absorbed personality when co-star Patti Murin was sidelined with the flu Thursday. From her glittering first notes through every step of an assured performance, Okenka more than gave the audience its money’s worth at the latest show in SHN’s season.

It was another nice turn in San Francisco’s long relationship with composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz and librettist Winnie Holzman’s adaptation of Gregory Maguire’s dystopian “Oz” prequel. The show had its world premier here in 2003, before going on to become one of Broadway’s hottest tickets, and returned for a prolonged run in ’09.

It’s very much the same, well-oiled production as last time, staged with quick-paced clarity by Joe Mantello and inventively boisterous dance by Wayne Cilento. The great smoke-breathing mechanical dragon looms above the massive gears and clockworks of Eugene Lee’s Victorian steam-punk set. The cast creates sharp individual portraits in Susan Hilferty’s scruffy peasant, odd animal and glittering Emerald City costumes.

The heart of “Wicked” is the story of Elphaba and Glinda, accidental roommates and rivals in wizardry and romance at Shiz University. Dee Roscioli shines as the shy but assertive, sharp-tongued green girl, the eternal outsider blessed – and cursed – with magical powers she’s only learning to use.

Though she’s played Elphaba more often than anyone else, Roscioli keeps the role fresh and immediate, whether navigating her uneasy growing closeness with Glinda or confronting the villainies of Kim Zimmer’s outrageously formidable Madame Morrible and the vaudevillian con-man Wizard of Kevin McMahon (also filling in for an ailing regular).

Wicked, The hit musical is based on Gregory McGuire’s popular novel of the same name returns to Tampa, Florida January 09, 2013.

Jeanna De Waal, Born in Germany and raised in the U.K., is playing the role of Glinda.
“This is the biggest role I’ve ever played,” said Jeanna De Waal, who plays Glinda. “It was quite stressful in the beginning. I’ve grown in what I think I can take on. I’m quite proud of myself that I’m able to do this role and how I’ve done it. It’s a real personal achievement.”

“It’s a soprano role. I [had been doing] very pop and rock shows, so I was vocally challenged. [Then], the role was originated by Kristen Chenoweth. I look completely different than her. The challenge was finding Glinda myself,” De Waal said.

Christine Dwyer is playing the role of Elphaba in this touring production.
“I wanted to play the role, but I never thought I’d be able to get through a whole show. Now I’m doing one every night. It’s made me more confident and it’s grown my voice a lot more,” said Dwyer.

Dwyer added, “Another struggle is not getting too wrapped up in the fact that it is such a big role. It can be pretty daunting when you’re sick or tired from traveling. At the end of the day, it has helped having cast mates around and staying grounded. It’s definitely a challenge to mentally and physically prepare for a long-running show like this.”

Wicked last time came to the Carol Morsani Hall – The Straz Center in 2010 and now returned for 3-weeks where it will close on January 27, 2013.

Wicked at The Straz Center – Performance Schedule:
Tuesdays – 7:30 PM
Wednesdays – 7:30 PM
Thursdays – 7:30 PM
Fridays – 8:00 PM
Saturdays – 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM
Sundays – 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM
