Wicked Broadway Musical A Shining Star In Vancouver! – Reviewed By Alan Samuel, TheLinkPaper.ca

Again Broadway Across Canada scores a hit with their lavish Wicked production. Long sustained standing ovations aside this delightful musical is bringing the house down at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Based loosely on the classic 1939 MGM classic The Wizard of Oz this new slick version looks at the witches of Oz from a fresh new angle. Women, love, family and jealously all figure prominently in this 2 1/2 hour spectacular that Oz creator Baum and studio head Louis B. Mayer would be rightly proud of.

In this 2 act play bolstered by dozens of hip songs we see the flavour of Oz can put through the ringer when a green faced girl matures, gets scorned and hates all that’s good in the world. Over time our little Wicked gets tangled in a monumental struggle with her dad, her wheel-chair bound sister and a school girl princess like friend. How these three individuals handle their differences will keep your eyes glued to the stage throughout this enchanting romp.

Complete with gorgeous costumes, snazzy special effects, an appearance by a tin man, a larger than life carnival barking wizard caricature and unforgettable songs by our two leading ladies makes Wicked a delightful fun – filled time for the whole family.

Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM) has announced their 73rd season of shows, with seven touring Broadway productions coming to the Music Hall at Fair Park. The mega-hit Wicked musical is included in the schedule.

Wicked musical will be returning to Dallas for four weeks from April 10 to May 5, 2013. DSM chief Michael Jenkins swears this is the most requested musical in his poll of patrons. So he’s hauling back the witches, Munchkins and flying monkeys for a fourth go-round. It is one of the great Broadway hits (it’s still running there). If you saw any of the previous tours that came to Dallas, you’d have seen actress Stephanie J. Block, now a big Broadway star (she’s prepping the New York revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood), as Elphaba, and Smash star Megan Hilty as Glinda.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and it has broken box office records and sold out every time it has played Dallas. Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster,” according to 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 Witch makes for “the most complete—and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time.” (USA Today).
