Wicked Casts Spell Over Des Moines – Reviewed By Brooke Bridenstine, BroadWayWorld.com.

The musical that flew back to Des Moines last week needs no introduction. Wicked, The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz, cast its spell on Des Moines in two prior engagements and this time around new spectators and Wicked veterans alike will be flocking to see the gravity defying musical. Wicked is now a ten year Broadway veteran, and with a timeless story, excellent production value and top talent, Wicked will no doubt continue to thrill audiences for years to come.

Wicked takes the classic fable of The Wizard of Oz and turns it on its head by focusing on the unlikely friendship between Glinda, the Good Witch, and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West. When the two meet at school, there is instant hatred between popular Glinda and loner Elphaba. But when the two are forced to interact they learn that perhaps they have more in common than they thought.

Wicked endures because the story it tells is timeless and filled with relatable themes. Set in the fantasy world of Oz, Wicked is not bound by conventional time. Again and again, audiences are transported to the magical, green world of Oz and the story never becomes dated because it is not of our world. Oz is a land where animals talk, there are thirteen hours on the time dragon clock, and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz presides over a seemingly perfect society. Themes such as the importance of friendship, seeking personal identity and the battle of good versus evil are woven throughout the show. And while the themes are familiar, when told against the Ozian setting they are as fresh as ever.

Wicked is the rare show that successfully combines spectacle and heart. Whether you have seen it or not, take a trip to Oz this week. Wicked continues its’ Des Moines run through November 10th. For ticket information visit Des Moines Performing Arts.

‘Wicked’ lures audience again and again – Reviewed By Michael Morain, DesMoinesRegister.com.

“Wicked” returned to Des Moines Wednesday for its third visit and brought with it another horde of ticket-buyers, drawn in like trick-or-treaters for a sugar fix.

Nobody can really explain why the show hit the sweet spot that by now has generated more than $3 billion from 38 million viewers worldwide. It could be that we identify with the two main characters, the allegedly “good” and “wicked” witches, who feel misunderstood in distinct but understandable ways. It could also be that the feel-good takeaway about being yourself and accepting others is a message that bears repeating. It’s certainly the kind of emotional ride that attracts repeat viewers, who might not return for something like “The Book of Mormon,” which loses some of its shock value the second time around.

As Glinda the Good, the Kansas native Hayley Podschun seems to have inherited DNA from both a chipmunk and Barbie. She is a chattering blonde bombshell, whose perky vanity belies a steely spine and sparkling set of pipes. Her giddy acrobatics win laughs in “Popular,” her signature song, but her voice is no less flexible or energetic. Later she brings something deeper to “Thank Goodness,” slapping on a smile to hide her character’s pain.

Jennifer DiNoia plays Elphaba, the green one, and belts out the empowering anthem “Defying Gravity” with apparent ease, adding musical heft even to its final Tarzan yell. She has an impressive range — listen to her sweet low notes in “I’m Not That Girl” — and she clearly believes what she’s singing. Still, it’s her acting that pulls us in, showing us exactly why the witch was never so wicked as we once believed.

“It’s all in which label is able to persist,” the Wizard (Walker Jones) explains, showing off the lyricist’s knack for internal rhyme. “There are precious few at ease / with moral ambiguities / so we act as if they don’t exist.”

Even without the multimillion-dollar sets and costumes, it’s a moving story with beautiful music and relatable characters. It’s embedded in our culture now, as solid as bricks in the yellow brick road.

Wicked is currently playing on tour at the Des Moines Civic Center through December 04, 2011.

The musical focuses on Elphalba (Anne Brummel) and Galinda (Tiffany Haas), the wicked witch of the west and the good witch of the north, respectively. When the audience meets them, Elphalba is a green-skinned girl used to having the world look askance at her. Galinda (who renames herself with the more familiar Glinda only after one of the characters gets her goat), is the popular one, for whom everything has always come easily.

The two form an unlikely friendship (one of the few true clichés in this story) and jointly go to Oz to meet the wizard. The crisis they face there splits them. Elphalba’s strength allows her to make what she sees as the right choice. Galinda, without Elphalba’s tough background, makes the easy one.

Brummel and Haas are certainly up to the roles. They give both the realism necessary to pull off the most poignant scenes, the ones where the audience cringes with recognition of themselves in Elphalba’s painful awkwardness and Galinda’s stunning shallowness. The growth of the characters through the story feels natural, not scripted.

They have an able cast surrounding them. David Nathan Perlow as Fiyero, a playboy prince, turns in a solid performance, as does Dan Pacheco as a lovelorn Munchkin. Neither overshadows the witches, but both hold their own while sharing the stage with them.

A note about the audience: Ovations at the end of the performance can seem more of a duty than a genuine expression. The audience I saw had no such hesitation, coming out of their seats almost as soon as the final song ended for a well-deserved standing ovation.
