Wicked tour is currently performing at San Diego Civic Theatre and continue through Sunday July 15, 2012. Wicked play reviewed by James Hebert at The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Touring musical Wicked in fetching form, with a pretty great Glinda. The latest touring version that just landed in San Diego. It’s been nearly 10 years since “Wicked,” that musical monument to the “Oz” story and its spell-casting sistahs, first hit New York. And if anyone then had suggested the show would still be the top box-office draw on Broadway a decade later, even composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz might’ve replied: “When monkeys fly.”

Unlike some stripped-down musical road shows that feel as if they’ve gotten mugged the third time they struggle through town, this “Wicked” boasts a substantial (and dynamic) 15-member orchestra, unstinting visual splash (courtesy of Eugene Lee’s steampunk-y sets and Susan Hilferty’s stylishly bonkers costumes) and a top-notch cast.

Glinda is, of course, kind of a ding-dong. (Wrong witch, but anyway.) So Mauzey’s portrayal meshes beautifully with Nicole Parker’s sharp take on the wise but wary Elphaba, the green-skinned heroine of “Wicked.”

The back story on this saga of epic frenemies, as adapted adroitly by Winnie Holzman from Gregory Maguire’s novel (a kind of prequel to the Oz story): Elphaba, green from birth, is forced to room at Shiz University with Galinda (as she’s known at first), the girl who – as the signature song goes – knows what it takes to be “Popular.”

Elphaba, who one day will become the (cruelly despised) Wicked Witch of the West, is there mostly to take care of her disabled sister Nessarose (a captivating Emily Ferranti), the eventual Wicked Witch of the East.

Broadway-San Diego is bringing back Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, “Wicked.” Wicked coming to San Diego Civic Theatre on Wednesday June 20, 2012 and will perform through Sunday July 15, 2012.

Wicked is the untold story of the Witches of Oz. This story of the Wicked Witch of the West (well before Dorothy showed up in the Land of Oz) is clever and wickedly entertaining. Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl, Elphaba.
