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.

Wicked first national tour is currently playing at the Providence Performing Arts Center (220 Weybosset St #2, Providence, RI 02906) for the third time since 2007 through January 12, 2014.

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.
