There’s more to “Wicked” than what meets the eye at the Orpheum Theatre. In terms of a production, Wicked is astonishing – Reviewed By Morgan Halaska, TCDailyPlanet.com.

There’s something to be said about the vast popularity of Wicked, being that The Wizard of Oz is one of the most parodied stories of our time. Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) starring James Franco is a recent example of a failed attempt to reap the benefits of a story with established success. Wicked has taken on a life of its own, though, and has dominated that sect of the “what really happened in The Wizard of Oz” take. Opening night on Thursday, September 19 at the Orpheum Theatre proved that team Elphaba has the potential to go as strong as its team-Dorothy counterpart (although the two aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive).

Wicked the musical (2003) rips its genius straight from the pages of Gregory McGuire’s novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (1995), a revised look at the classic 1939 film. We learn the other side of the story, in which we see The Wicked Witch of the West as Elphaba (Alison Luff), the “beautifully tragic” student who stands up for her beliefs even if it’s not the popular one. Because of her green-colored skin, she’s automatically outcasted both by her father and her fellow classmates, who instead favor the “tragically beautiful” sister Nessarose (Jaime Rosenstein) and the blonde-haired winsome Galinda (that’s right, Galinda with a “guh”) (Jenn Gambatese) respectively. Elphaba and Galinda are paired as roommates—a travesty of justice of course, for Galinda, who’s used to getting her way.

In terms of a production, Wicked is astonishing. The set design, choreography and of course the music is nothing short of impressive.

“I’m only onstage 17 minutes out of a three-hour show, and they’re paying me quite well to do that,” he said. “I’m a very lucky man.” “I grew up singing Rodgers & Hammerstein, but ‘Wicked’ has taken the musical to a whole new level,” he said. “I’m proud to be a part of this production.”

Davidson said he is fine with the smaller part of the Wizard instead of being the leading man he was for so many years. “I’m realistic about where I am in life right now. But I love playing the con man,” he said.

He said he is happy still to be involved in his first love, live theater, although he believes all the media are related.

The role also gives Davidson a chance to see the country. He and his wife, Rhonda, are traveling around for the tour in a camper. While their mobile home does not rise to Loretta Lynn-style luxury, it does have two bathrooms and a full kitchen.

“It’s a great way to see the country and you meet a lot of great people,” he added.

Wicked playing at Orpheum Theatre now through September 19.

Back by “Popular” demand. Entertainment Weekly calls Wicked “the best musical of the decade,” and when it played Minneapolis in 2006 and 2008, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, a cultural phenomenon and was just named “the defining musical of the decade” by The New York Times.

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete and completely satisfying new musical in a long time” (USA Today).

Orpheum Theatre is located at 910 Hennepin Ave., West Minneapolis, MN 55403. From here Wicked is moving to Madison, WI, playing at Overture Center Madison from September 22 to October 10, 2010.

Joan Marcus Vicki Noon as Elphaba and Natalie Daradich as Glinda

Wicked landed confidently at Minneapolis’ Orpheum Theatre on Thursday for a six-week run in its third Twin Cities go-round.

From the moment that Glinda, ruler of Oz, arrives by delicate bubble carriage to the finale when she leaves by same, “Wicked” sparkles like, well, fairy dust.

It’s gratifying that Joe Mantello’s flawless and lyrical production, with its seamless transitions, is still in such tiptop shape. It allows the show to reveal more of its depth and meaning, even if Stephen Schwartz’s score hasn’t gotten any more hummable from repeated exposure.

The power of “Wicked” — created by Schwartz and librettist Winnie Holzman from Gregory Maguire’s fanciful 1995 novel — rests on its portrait of two young women figuring out their relationship to each other and to men. Loyalty, friendship and love grow out of shallowness and seemingly unbridgeable differences.

“Wicked” also includes a secret connection between Elphaba and the Wizard, played with avuncular ease by former Guthrie and Chanhassen character actor Don Amendolia, who does a charming “Wonderful.”

Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel originated the roles of Glinda and Elphaba on Broadway, imprinting their respective characters with flighty cuteness and self-possessed intelligence. In this production, Daradich has the ditz down pat, inhabiting Glinda with a hair-tossing silliness but also with tremendous vocal agility and a wonderful sense of play.
