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 Orange County Performing Arts Center is rejoicing this year, as center president Terry Dwyer prepares for what he calls “our more eclectic season yet,” to the LA Times. The lineup of the 2010- 2011 Broadway and Curtain Call productions for the company include the new show by Cirque du Soleil, “Mary Poppins,” “Hair” and “Wicked.” All shows are set to perform at the center’s Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa, opening with the Broadway series October 21 through November 14 with the Tony Bartlett Sher revival “Sot Pacific.” Like every other touring Broadway company, each show is presented with its own company in tow and will fill the season with joy and excitement. Next comes the few detail Cirque du Soleil feature from December 7-26, which Dwyer describes as something that will work better in a theater rather than their typical tent. “Hair,” performs January 25 – February 6th, with “Wicked” returning March 9th through April 3rd. The story of the Wicked Witch of the West and her rooommate from college Glinda the Good Witch previously performed at the Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa in 2006 and broke box office records. Why the return, and so soon after it’s last performance? For Dwyer, “people let us know they really wanted to see it again.”
