Buy Tickets to see Wicked! WICKED is currently playing on tour in Boston, MA and moves to Philadelphia, PA

As a part of the PNC Broadway in Louisville series, Wicked is performing at The Kentucky Center – Whitney Hall through September 30, 2012. Here is the review by Michelle Rynbrandt at Louisville.com.

Wicked seems like just another stereotypical modern musical—think Legally Blonde meets Grease. The plain girl (or in this case, green girl Elphaba) is mocked while the pretty and popular girl (Glinda) lives the easy life. Pretty girl gets a conscience, transforms plain girl and they become life-long friends.

But then comes the ingenuity that has made Wicked into a national sensation.

In one imaginative twist after another, novelist Gregory Maguire, who wrote the book on which the musical is based, and playwright Winnie Holzman weave a backstory to the Wizard of Oz so complete it’s hard to believe L. Frank Baum didn’t write it himself.

Wicked lives up to the hype by ending act one with one of the most magical effects in theatre today, leaving the audience electrified.

To be sure, Wicked makes audiences giggle at its corny jokes, gawk at its stunning costumes and massive set, and perhaps even get choked up a moment or two.

But the real magic to Wicked is the underlying message it brings. The show is positively phosphorescent, but there is a whole lot more to Wicked than what meets the eye.
