“Wicked!” and “Awesome!” – Reviewed by Chris Harding via Boston Neighborhood News.

The musical , which depicts an alternate history of the witches of Oz, has repeatedly broken box office records in Boston and around the world, having been seen by 37 million people (largely those of the female persuasion). You don’t need green spectacles to perceive that the young leads have greater vocal power and stage presence than many a better-known performer could muster.

At the heart of this prequel is the ever-changing friendship and rivalry between two women who meet at the Hogwartian Shiz University. Alison Luff plays the green-skinned, thin-skinned Elphaba, who becomes the Wicked Witch of the West while Jenn Gambatese portrays her blonde-headed, air-headed roomie, who becomes Glinda the Good.

The show was adapted from a best-seller of the same title written by part-time Concord, MA, resident Gregory Maguire. Librettist Winnie Holzman’s stage version is more light-hearted and conventionally romantic than Maguire’s somewhat grim and definitely adult take on the Frank L. Baum classic series. Creator of the lauded TV series “My So-Called Life,” she highlights “Seventeen”-ish issues like body images, dangerous boyfriends, school rivalries, self-esteem, and animal rights. However, Holzman doesn’t shy from the book’s existential reflections on how well-intentioned deeds can turn out to have evil effects.

So “Wicked” fronts up with more than enough spectacle and laughs to enchant the first-time viewer, but its haunting, tangled plot and intelligent lyrics just seem to grow richer and more intricate with each subsequent visit. So slip on your ruby red party shoes and head over to the Boston Opera House.

Touring musical is a ‘Wicked’ good show – Reviewed via

A decade after opening on Broadway, “Wicked,” the musical back-story of “The Wizard of Oz,” is still vibrant and exciting, with absolutely gorgeous music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.

The touring production that opened this week at The Boston Opera House had some uneven singing, but better acting and dancing than in the two other touring shows I’ve seen.

Jenn Gambatese’s Glinda the Good is a terrific blend of a ditzy exterior and a genuinely nice person hidden within. The character is also hilarious. A Broadway veteran, Gambatese is comfortable on stage and well-versed in handling the musical demands of a show like “Wicked.” Her soprano is smooth and warm, bringing to life the opening number, “No One Mourns the Wicked,” as well as “Thank Goodness” and the widely sung, and very funny, “Popular.”

This is definitely a “Wicked” good production worth seeing, even if you’ve seen the musical before. But without a crystal ball to see Luff, the Elphaba regular, it’s hard to say if the chemistry will be as good as it was between Gambatese and Harris, and whether Luff’s singing as Elphaba will be even better.
