Wicked Musical currently touring in Costa Mesa CA for almost 4-week run through March 17, 2013. The Wizard of Oz has returned to the Segerstrom Center for the third time and reviewed by ANNE VALDESPINO – Here is the review:

Now a decade old, “Wicked” continues to set records for ticket sales and it still attracts an eclectic audience: little girls in ruby red dresses, punks with platinum hair, fresh-faced young women dragging their boyfriends, seniors and gay couples. Its soaring score, fantasy landscape, love story and a book packed with one-liners appeal to a wide demographic.

It’s no surprise that composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz, with his love of challenging subjects, could craft a musical out of Gregory Maguire’s best-selling 1995 novel. “Wicked” bristles with great music, from its foreboding title track, “No One Mourns the Wicked,” to songs of young love awakening such as “I’m Not That Girl,” and plenty of anthemic ballads in between: “Defying Gravity” and “The Wizard and I.”

Schwartz is suddenly hot again – or perhaps he’s never gone cold. “Pippin” is poised for a spring Broadway revival, and “Wicked” is just more candy for his hard-core fans. The composer of “Godspell” and Disney musicals including “Enchanted,” “Pocahontas,” and “The Prince of Egypt,” Schwartz is a master of pulling on heartstrings.

“Wicked” is about the odd friendship of two girls, one blond and popular, the other a green witch with strange powers. Thrown together accidentally, they experience the typical phases of teen relationships: first dances, bonding over clothes and hairstyles, fighting over the cutest boy in the school. Add politics, sorcery, betrayal and murder to the mix.

Continually taunted for her green skin, Elphaba attends school only to care for her wheelchair-bound sister Nessarose, and meets her opposite, Glinda, the girl with the golden hair. At first they tangle, then become roomies and best friends. Handsome prince Fiyero tests their loyalties by first falling for Glinda and then taking up Elphaba’s political cause: her championing of animal rights, which lands her in deep trouble at school and with the Wizard. Meanwhile, Nessarose has her heart set on Boq, a Munchkin who only has eyes for Glinda.

The Broadway musical Wicked is making another return visit to Chicago for an eight-week engagement this fall. Wicked ran for more than three-and-a-half years in a dedicated Chicago production betwen 2005 and 2009.

“Wicked,” the Tony Award-winning musical inspired by Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel about the young witches of Oz before Dorothy dropped in, returns to Chicago October 30, 2013 for a limited run, Broadway in Chicago announced late Sunday. The returning engagement of Wicked will play at Ford Center for the Performing Arts’ Oriental Theatre from October 30 to December 21, 2013.

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines a pre-Dorothy backstory for the Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda the Good and several other characters familiar from L. Frank Baum’s original and the 1939 MGM film.

This tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of the show’s Broadway debut marks the second time since Chicago’s sit-down production closed that “Wicked” has returned to Chicago. “To be part of the 10th anniversary celebration and once again share ‘Wicked’ with Chicago audiences is a great honor,” said Broadway in Chicago President Lou Raizin in a prepared statement.

The show has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman; though it lost the 2004 Tony Awards for best musical, book and score to Avenue Q, Wicked has gone on to set box office records in a number of cities. The new stop by one of Wicked’s touring companies will hit Chicago October 30–December 21, coinciding with the ten-year anniversary of the musical’s Broadway production, which opened October 30, 2003 and is still running.

Wicked Touring Company will be in Chicago IL from October 30 to December 21, 2013. Buy Wicked Chicago’s Oriental Theatre Tickets Online at discounted prices – SAVE $10 when you spend $350 or more, Use code AFF$10.
