Wicked

Wicked is an excellent musical, first released on Broadway in 2004 and now in London's West-end Apollo Theatre. It is based on the book by Winnie Holzman, the best-selling book about the witches in the magical land of Oz. The Musical has had a enormous success in America, now the London production brought it to England with Joe Mantello as the director.

Wicked tells the story between Elpheba, the wicked witch of the west, and Glinda the good witch of the north. They struggle with their friendship due to their opposed characters, having the same love interest and different reactions to the Wizard’s corrupt government.

All happens before Dorothy dropped in, but during the show there are references to some of the best scenes in the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz". The story really moves all the audience members, even the toughest hearts. Some of the amazing music you can hear on this show are "No one mourns the Wicked" and "The wizard and I".

The Wicked may not be suitable for very young children who could get scared by the fantastic, chilling performance of Kerry Ellis as the Wicked Witch. But absolutely sure adults and teenagers will love this musical.

Here is a praising review by Michael Billington for The Guardian:
"Friends of Dorothy may be diverted by this musical prequel to The Wizard of Oz. But, although it has been a hit in New York, it seems all too typical of the modern Broadway musical: efficient, knowing and highly professional but more like a piece of industrial product than something that genuinely touches the heart or mind."
