It’s not easy being green, but it’s no walk in the park being mean either. Those are the lessons of the wildly popular musical Wicked, on tour at the Providence Performing Arts Center in an extended run through January 12. Subtitled “The Untold Story of The Witches of Oz,” the tale has been seen by more than 13 million theatergoers from New York to Japan. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the book is by Winnie Holzman, and it was directed by Joe Mantello.

No Judy Garland look-alike appears, but occasional details from the movie emerge in the background, such as a glimpse of a yellow brick road and, in silhouette toward the end, a bucket of water melting the wicked witch, Elphaba (Alison Luff). (Don’t worry, in this telling that was faked, so she’s fine.)

This backstory to The Wizard of Oz takes place in a land of wand-waving and spell-casting that Harry Potter would enjoy. Children can be cruel, so we’d expect them to give Elphaba a hard time when she arrives at Shiz University, but her father has apparently been crueler, making clear that her only purpose in life is to take care of her wheelchair-bound sister Nessarose (Jaime Rosenstein).

The witches of Oz still cast their spell.

The musical has a lot going for it, from the catchy tunes to Eugene Lee’s brilliant clockwork sets. But the key is the relationship between Elphaba, the wicked (and very green) witch, and her enemy-turned-friend Glinda.

Elphaba is the lead part (after all, the show is called “Wicked” ) and Alison Luff gave a strong performance as both actor and singer, belting out signature songs such as “Defying Gravity” while portraying her character’s progression from naivete to ambition, outrage and finally rebellion.

But Glinda, played by Gina Beck, had to carry much of the comedic load. Beck has a lovely voice, although not quite as strong as Luff’s, and she is a gifted comic actress.

Glinda is an insufferably shallow, perky blonde who dresses like Barbie, and is apparently beloved by all. The outcast Elphaba immediately despises her, as the two sing “What is This Feeling?” (It’s loathing, that’s what.).

But the two go on to develop a friendship — there is a very funny scene in which Glinda tries to teach Elphaba the proper way to toss her hair — before they are temporarily torn apart by both love and politics.

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.
