“We are thrilled to welcome the return of Wicked to Robinson Center Music Hall this fall. What a great way to start off our 30th Anniversary Broadway Season!” said Celebrity Attractions Chief Executive Officer, Ed. L. Payton. “To say WICKED is returning to Arkansas by ‘popular’ demand is an understatement – and after seeing how quickly tickets flew out of the box office for our last Little Rock engagement, I am sure the two week run this fall will be the hottest ticket in town.”

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other 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. WICKED tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

Wicked Shines When Glinda the Good Witch is on Stage – reviewed by D.L. Groover.

The set-up:
With all the aerial modes of transportation on display in Stephen Schwartz’s (and book writer Winnie Holtzman’s) megahit musical Wicked – winged monkeys, broomstick, tornado, fairground balloon, and bubble – you’d think this theatrical juggernaut from 2003, the fourth incarnation to visit Houston via Gexa on Broadway, would have learned how to fly.

The execution:
Based very loosely upon Gregory Maguire’s adult “prequel” to L. Frank Baum’s classic series of children’s books, this Broadway adaptation owes whatever magic it possesses to the long-ago, golden age wizards of MGM. Wicked’s creators should be on their knees in thanks, because without the cinematic references to characters, costume and set design, even lines of dialogue, this show would be nowhere.

The verdict:
The show, immensely popular and still selling out on Broadway as well as in every city it tours, is impervious to criticism. Ten years down the road, it has lost none of its power to beguile and will probably be around fifty years from now packing the house. This is family entertainment with a vengeance, and it’s heartening to see young ones in the audience so thrilled by live theater. But I think they marvel at the quantity, not the quality.

Wicked soars again in its fourth visit to Houston – reviewed by Everett Evans.

The alchemy that makes a hit musical is as weird and inexplicable as a witch’s spell – as the touring “Wicked” demonstrates yet again in the Broadway blockbuster’s fourth visit to Houston.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel telling the back story of the good and bad witches of Oz, “Wicked” soars despite unevenness in Winnie Holzman’s book and Stephen Schwartz’s score – both with fine moments, yet overall, more serviceable than inspired. “Wicked” lands a phenomenal punch anyway, because the premise is so irresistible and every other key element of the show, from direction to design to performance, is just about ideal.

As always, the first thing you notice is Eugene Lee’s elaborate scenic design: a proscenium of gadgets and gizmos, framing the show curtain depicting the map of Oz, topped by the Time Dragon, a huge puppet whose eyes glow red as it breathes fire and flaps its enormous wings. That’s the tip-off that “Wicked” is the real deal, a grand-scale, fully appointed Broadway musical – a rare breed these days, whether in New York or on the road.

Once the curtain rises, the rest of Lee’s settings, Susan Hilferty’s wildly imaginative costumes and Kenneth Posner’s magical lighting combine to conjure an extravagant vision, fantasyland with quirky twists – after all, Oz always had a freakish streak. Joe Mantello’s fluid and inventive direction melds all the design elements and the company into vivid stage pictures. With eclectic choreographic embellishment by Wayne Cilento, Mantello generates narrative momentum, with increasing attention to the more dramatic aspects as it advances.

David Nathan Perlow plays callow Fiyero with charm and sings agreeably. Kathy Fitzgerald makes a properly imperious, then sinister Madame Morrible. Walker Jones’ Wizard is a genial albeit low-key charlatan. Jenny Fellner and Alex Wyse do nicely with the subplot of lovelorn Nessarose and Boq, her ill-fated swain.

Perhaps inevitably, “Wicked” impresses much as before. You can’t keep a good, or wicked, witch down.
