When Wicked first landed in Nashville in 2009, it played to sold-out crowds and broke box-office records. Now, the award-winning blockbuster is back and once again ready to cast its spell on local audiences at Tennessee Performing Arts Center.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, Wicked opened on Broadway in 2003 and quickly became something of a cultural phenomenon. Loosely based on Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, the musical explores the untold story (and unlikely friendship) of green-skinned Elphaba and Glinda the Good — and just how they became the witches of Oz.

Wicked cast - Tiffany Haas as Glinda and Anne Brummel as Elphaba


Anne Brummel brings great strength and sensitivity to the role of Elphaba, wowing the crowd in the show’s defining musical number, “Defying Gravity.” Meanwhile, Tiffany Haas shines as the perky and popular Glinda. Far less chirpy than other Glindas I’ve seen, Haas makes the most of the role’s comic elements, while capitalizing on its more bittersweet moments.

And while the two seemed a bit tentative in their opening numbers, both settle into their roles nicely, sharing a joyful chemistry. “What Is This Feeling?” and “Popular” are especially fun.

Brummel and Haas receive fine support from Jody Gelb (as schoolmistress Madame Morrible), Emily Ferranti (Nessarose) and Dan Pacheco (Boq). David Nathan Perlow is charming as love-interest Fiyero, and film/stage veteran Don Amendolia is … well, wonderful as the Wizard.

Eugene Lee’s elaborate set continues to amaze, and the production’s technical wizardry is dazzling — from the Time Dragon Clock and flying monkeys to Glinda’s gracefully floating bubble. Susan Hilferty’s intricate and colorful costumes and Kenneth Posner’s dramatic lighting add to the spectacle.

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

The successful Broadway musical, Wicked returns to Tennessee Performing Arts Center – Andrew Jackson Hall on October 19, 2011. Wicked musical shows at Nashville, TN Continues Mondays-Sundays through November 06, 2011.

Wicked Musical broke box office records and sold out in record time when it first played Nashville in 2009. The 2009 touring production was technically fantastic, with wonderful performers throughout the cast — especially Marcie Dodd, whose Elphaba soared (“Defying Gravity”), and Helene Yorke, whose Glinda was equally good (“Popular”). Dodd has continued to tour with the show, but Music City gets new principals this time around — Anne Brummel and Tiffany Haas. But with such a strong book by Winnie Holzman, and with Stephen Schwartz’s exciting score, there’s little chance local audiences would ever be disappointed. For the uninitiated, you’ll be getting cued in to what happened in Oz long before Dorothy rode in on the twister from Kansas.
