Move over, Hurricane Earl. Boston has been taken by a bona fide storm - a category four whirlwind known as Wicked, the smash hit musical currently in its seventh year on Broadway. The second national tour of the ten-time Tony-nominated show has blown into the Boston Opera House for the next six weeks with an outstanding cast, intricate sets and effects, beautifully detailed costumes, and a 17-piece orchestra, including twelve local musicians, in the pit under Conductor P. Jason Yarcho. This is Broadway in Boston, and this is as good as it gets.
