After more than a decade, “Wicked” has proven its extraordinary staying power – Reviewed By Amy Stumpfl, at The Tennessean.

When “Wicked” first premiered on Broadway in 2003, the reviews were unmistakably mixed. But as they often do, audiences had the final word, and 10 years later, “Wicked” has been declared “a cultural phenomenon,” smashing box office records around the world.

This week, the award-winning musical landed in Nashville once again, for a four-week engagement in TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall. And after selling out in record time in both 2009 and 2011, it’s safe to say that “Wicked’s” allure is “evergreen.”

The touring production certainly has lost none of its luster, thanks in part to exceptional casting. Alison Luff is excellent as Elphaba — her witchy cackle alone garnered enthusiastic cheers from the audience at Thursday evening’s performance. She glosses over the character’s awkward misfit persona just a bit, but her explosive vocals are amazing, particularly in big numbers such as “Defying Gravity.”

Gina Beck makes a dazzling U.S. debut, joining the tour directly from the West End production of “Wicked,” where she also played Glinda. Beck’s crystalline voice is stunning, but she also has the comedic chops to work the crowd for maximum laughs in “Popular.” She and Luff are delightful together, clearly having fun with “What Is This Feeling?” and delivering a stirring rendition of “For Good.”

Two-time Tony Award nominee Alison Fraser provides great support as schoolmistress Madame Morrible. Jenny Florkowski is lovely as Nessarose, and Nick Adams plays the carefree Fiyero with confidence (“Dancing Through Life”). Meanwhile, television/film veteran Tim Kazurinsky brings his own brand of corn-fed charm to the so-called “Wonderful” Wizard of Oz.

I’m still in awe of Eugene Lee’s richly layered set — from the intricate clock gears to Glinda’s magical floating bubble. Susan Hilferty’s exquisitely detailed costumes are enchanting, as are Tom Watson’s funky wigs and hair design. And Kenneth Posner’s lighting adds another dimension to the already impressive display of stagecraft.
