Wicked musical is currently performing at Hippodrome Theatre from October 03 to November 04, 2012. “Wicked” is the story of two girls and the very different lives they end up with. Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz.

Here is the review of the Wicked musical by FLORENCE LAU at jhunewsletter.com:

This month, prepare to soar above Oz at the Hippodrome with the Tony Award winning musical Wicked.

The prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Wicked follows the story of Elphaba Thropp (Christine Dwyer) and Glinda Upland (Jeanna de Waal), who eventually grow up to be the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. Grappling with the idea of good vs. evil, politics and friendship, this show teems with colorful lights and costumes, spectacular special effects, show-stopping musical numbers and of course, one misunderstood green girl.

Although this show was based on Gregory Maguire’s book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, it departs from the novel in order to tell a much more light-hearted story about the conflict in Oz.

The show begins with the celebration of the death of the Wicked Witch of the West before taking the audience back in time to when the Witch was still a girl named Elphaba starting out at Shiz University with her younger sister, Nessarose. Although Elphaba initally has an extremely antagonistic relationship with her roommate, Glinda, the two of them eventually become best friends, to the surprise of everyone else around them.

Meanwhile, dark forces are brewing in Oz.

Animals are losing their ability to speak, and Elphaba is determined to get to the bottom of it. Elphaba’s magical powers have come to the Wizard’s attention, but when she realizes that he is a fraud who only wants to use her powers for his own benefit, she strikes out against him, leading him to label her the Wicked Witch of the West.

The rest of the musical deals with the consequences of Elphaba’s decision to fight the Wizard and her subsequenct vilification, which brings her into conflict with Glinda and tests the limits of their friendship.
