Wicked is a drama-comedy spin-off of The Wizard of Oz. It is a battle between good and evil and what society believes to be good and evil. This story portrays the life of the Wicked Witch of the West or better known as Elphaba. It explains why she becomes “wicked” and why her skin is green. Wicked also explains her friendship with Glinda the Good. This musical has many answers and reasons for various occurrences in the world of Oz. It gives alternate reasons to who the Wicked Witch of the East is and who the tin man, lion, and scarecrow really are.
The props used for Wicked were phenomenal down to every little detail. Glinda flies around in a bubble in The Wizard of Oz, so a metal circle was created that she could fly around in--it even blew bubbles.
The Wicked cast that performs at the Performing Arts Center are not as good as the original Broadway performers Idina Menzel (Elphaba) and Kristen Chenowethas (Glinda), but Patti Muran as Glinda and Dee Roscioli as Elphaba did a really great job at the show.
