Wicked soars again in its fourth visit to Houston – reviewed by Everett Evans.

The alchemy that makes a hit musical is as weird and inexplicable as a witch’s spell – as the touring “Wicked” demonstrates yet again in the Broadway blockbuster’s fourth visit to Houston.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel telling the back story of the good and bad witches of Oz, “Wicked” soars despite unevenness in Winnie Holzman’s book and Stephen Schwartz’s score – both with fine moments, yet overall, more serviceable than inspired. “Wicked” lands a phenomenal punch anyway, because the premise is so irresistible and every other key element of the show, from direction to design to performance, is just about ideal.

As always, the first thing you notice is Eugene Lee’s elaborate scenic design: a proscenium of gadgets and gizmos, framing the show curtain depicting the map of Oz, topped by the Time Dragon, a huge puppet whose eyes glow red as it breathes fire and flaps its enormous wings. That’s the tip-off that “Wicked” is the real deal, a grand-scale, fully appointed Broadway musical – a rare breed these days, whether in New York or on the road.

Once the curtain rises, the rest of Lee’s settings, Susan Hilferty’s wildly imaginative costumes and Kenneth Posner’s magical lighting combine to conjure an extravagant vision, fantasyland with quirky twists – after all, Oz always had a freakish streak. Joe Mantello’s fluid and inventive direction melds all the design elements and the company into vivid stage pictures. With eclectic choreographic embellishment by Wayne Cilento, Mantello generates narrative momentum, with increasing attention to the more dramatic aspects as it advances.

David Nathan Perlow plays callow Fiyero with charm and sings agreeably. Kathy Fitzgerald makes a properly imperious, then sinister Madame Morrible. Walker Jones’ Wizard is a genial albeit low-key charlatan. Jenny Fellner and Alex Wyse do nicely with the subplot of lovelorn Nessarose and Boq, her ill-fated swain.

Perhaps inevitably, “Wicked” impresses much as before. You can’t keep a good, or wicked, witch down.

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).
