Review: Wicked the Musical

I finally got to see Wicked for the very first time on Broadway and I loved every second of it. What can I say apart from the fact that everything was great. The set was beautiful, the musics was memorable and the storyline was ingeniously written. What we really know about what happened in the book the Wizard of Oz might not be true. Wicked shows us what really occurred behind the scene where the wicked witch of the west is not really that all wicked.

My favourite character has to be Glenda the Good Witch. In my lifetime, I have seen so many curtseys given to royalties by ladies in waiting in the palaces of Bangkok but I have never such curtseys so grand and marvellous. Glenda’s curtsey pretty much puts real aristocratic ladies’ curtsey to shame in my opinion.

I definitely want to see Wicked again and the experience was worth every cent spent on it.
