Buy Tickets to see Wicked! WICKED is currently playing on tour in Chicago, IL and moves to Pittsburgh, PA

The national tour of the blockbuster musical, Wicked is currently performing at Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, 166 Capitol Ave. Hartford. This is a return engagement at the Bushnell of the hit show, now in its eighth year on Broadway, and still the top-grossing show there.

The back story of the Wicked Witch of the West (Elphaba) from “The Wizard of Oz,” based on Gregory Maguire’s fanciful book and her relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch.

All the bells, whistles and flying monkeys are here. Solid performing throughout — especially Dee Roscioli as Elphaba and Amanda Jane Cooper as Glinda. Roscioli has the right dry take to deliver Winnie Holzman’s sardonic lines for the outcast character. She also has the pipes to deliver the emotionally rich big notes that composer Stephen Schwartz sprinkles throughout the show. Cooper is a hoot as the self-centered Glinda but also goes deeper as we see the character grow from good-time girl to someone with a moral center. Nice jobs, too, by Randy Danson as Madame Morrible, Mark Jacoby as the Wizard (has the role ever been as well sung?) and Colin Hanlon as Fiyero.
