Witches of Wicked Charm PPAC Audience – Reviewed By Andy Smith, ProvidenceJournal.com.

The witches of Oz still cast their spell.

The musical has a lot going for it, from the catchy tunes to Eugene Lee’s brilliant clockwork sets. But the key is the relationship between Elphaba, the wicked (and very green) witch, and her enemy-turned-friend Glinda.

Elphaba is the lead part (after all, the show is called “Wicked” ) and Alison Luff gave a strong performance as both actor and singer, belting out signature songs such as “Defying Gravity” while portraying her character’s progression from naivete to ambition, outrage and finally rebellion.

But Glinda, played by Gina Beck, had to carry much of the comedic load. Beck has a lovely voice, although not quite as strong as Luff’s, and she is a gifted comic actress.

Glinda is an insufferably shallow, perky blonde who dresses like Barbie, and is apparently beloved by all. The outcast Elphaba immediately despises her, as the two sing “What is This Feeling?” (It’s loathing, that’s what.).

But the two go on to develop a friendship — there is a very funny scene in which Glinda tries to teach Elphaba the proper way to toss her hair — before they are temporarily torn apart by both love and politics.

Jaime Rosenstein to Play Nessarose at PPAC

Jaime Rosenstein to Play Nessarose at PPAC

Jaime Rosenstein is a Brown University graduate and a veteran of the joint Brown-Trinity Rep program. Actress Jaime Rosenstein auditioned for “Wicked” on a Monday, was told she got the job on Tuesday, and was flying off to Dallas two days later to join the national tour of the popular musical.

“It was kind of great,” said Rosenstein, 25. “It stopped me from over thinking.”

After she got her undergraduate degree at Brown, Rosenstein figured she needed more training and took up acting in Brown’s MFA program, which the school runs in conjunction with Trinity Rep.

“You want to be an actor who sings,” said Rosenstein, “and who can bring truth to the role.”

She felt so-called straight acting could help that happen. For her final project at Brown, she sang selections from “Cabaret” and teachers Brian McEleney and Stephen Berenson showed her how to bring her acting skills to the songs.

“It was invaluable,” she said.

Rosenstein was hired for the tour back in April. She said she had done her final project by then and her teachers were nice enough to give her a degree before the semester was out so she could go on tour.

Rosenstein, who’s from Manhattan, plays Nessarose in the show, the wheelchair-bound sister of Elphaba, who becomes the green wicked witch. “Wicked” offers the back story of the “Wizard of Oz” from the point of view of the witches.

“I’m just trying to make a life on the road,” she said. “There are times when it takes its toll, and times when you embrace it.”

But there’s also the thrill of landing a major tour right out of school.

“It’s been amazing,” she said. “It’s been beyond exciting to be part of this.”

Wicked musical tour will be in Providence RI until January 12, 2014. From here the tour moves to Pittsburgh, PA from January 15 to February 09, 2014. Hurry to Buy Wicked Providence Performing Arts Center Tickets Online and Enjoy the record-breaking, the most popular musical ever.

Wicked is Back Again at State Theatre – Cleveland, to Dazzle You with Big Tunes, Witchy Spells and Major Glitz – Reviewed By Christine Howey, CleveScene.com.

Wicked is about the original Wicked Witch and her counterpart Glinda the Good Witch, not the versions Hamilton and Billie Burke created in the iconic flick. But their indelible performances always seem to hover around and about this show, featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman.

This show has been performed so many times in so many places, it’s as seamless and smooth as a billiard ball. But that’s how the devotees of the play, many of whom tend to be teen and pre-teen girls, want it to be.

This production doesn’t disappoint from that perspective. Indeed, it may even exceed previous touring companies in some respects.

Featuring a story with some fairly complex plot turns that chronologically straddles the arrival of Dorothy in Oz, Wicked is a polished and stunningly designed production that never fails to amaze. Even when some of the set pieces and effects are clearly extraneous, they still have to power to fascinate.

If a house landed on you when you were young and you don’t know the story, suffice to say that the mean green witch (actual name Elphaba) and Glinda (actual name Galinda) met when students at Shiz University. Pursuing their studies in sorcery, they eventually bond, but are clearly flying their brooms in different directions, career-wise.

Glinda is a ditzy Legally Blonde-ish kind of witch, a fave of everyone who meets her. But she has a good heart and shares her crowd-pleasing knowledge with the sharp-edged Elphaba in the catchy song “Popular.”

In that role, Hayley Podschun dutifully mimics the performance markers set down by the original stage Glinda, Kristin Chenoweth. (Hey, this show is a valuable corporate product and like any good corporation, they’re looking for consistency.) But Podschun nails her songs with verve and high spirits, and what more can you ask?

Of course, Elphaba is an entirely different sort of enchantress. This is cemented in the show’s sterling song, the Act 1 closer “Defying Gravity,” in which Elphaba declares her independence in a rush of beautifully scored self-help aphorisms: “Too late for second guessing/Too late to go back to sleep/It’s time to trust my instincts/Close my eyes and leap!”
