Here is the review:

Every aspect of the performance is what you would expect from a professional touring company. The lighting is amazing, the voices are pure and on-key, the costumes are gorgeous, the dancing is flawless, the casting is perfect. But that’s not too surprising for any show that has this kind of money invested in it and this kind of fan base and pedigree. In fact, it’s kind of a given.

The leading ladies Jennifer DiNoia and Hayley Podschun are beautiful and have angelic voices. You won’t remember that as much. What you’ll remember from their performances are their faces – the power in their emotions, whether Podschun is nailing the punchline of a joke or DiNoia is passionately defending Elphaba’s right to be her own green-skinned self. You’ll remember the wild, despairing look DiNoia’s eyes as she sings “No Good Deed” and the irrepressible and infectious charisma of Podschun as she explains how essential it is to be loved in the performance of “Popular.”

DiNoia is on her fifth company of “Wicked,” and her mastery of her character is truly something to see. She conveys Elphaba’s caustic defensiveness in a way that makes the character’s passionate activism neither irritating nor admirable. It is simply decent – and that’s what this story is about. Being decent, being the best and most honest version of yourself that there is. Elphaba, with her black costumes, rolling eyes and constant one-liners, runs the risk of being the annoying goth kid; in DiNoia’s capable hands, she is simply a flawed, beautiful character who is marvelously, impeccably acted.

Both actresses were able to harness the emotions and sympathies of the audience and hold it in their hands for two and a half hours. The cast was nicely rounded out by Walker Jones as the Wizard and David Nathan Perlow as Fiyero.
