BWW Review: Named as the Musical of the Decade, WICKED Opens in Sao PauloBWW Review: Named as the Musical of the Decade, WICKED Opens in Sao Paulo
by Claudio Erlichman - Mar 4, 2016

Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, an alternative telling of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum's classic 1900 story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz; its plot begins before and continues after Dorothy's arrival in Oz from Kansas and includes several references to the 1939 film and Baum's novel. Wicked tells the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda, who struggle through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace.

My name is Justin Rubenstein, and I am a first year Junior at Dreyfoos School of the Arts. I am fortunate enough to be a part of the spring production of Shrek: the Musical, which has been nothing short of a magical experience. In Shrek, I play the characters Papa Shrek, a Duloc Guard, and a Knight. Although I was also in the fall production of Romeo and Juliet, this was the first time that I have ever been involved in a musical theatre production even close to this caliber. There have been a tremendous amount of new ideas, practices, and methods I had never been involved in and, pairing this with more technical aspects to a show than I have ever encountered, makes this one of the most enjoyable and educational shows I've been a part of to date.

Hey Y'all! I'm Dylan T. Jackson and I'm playing "Donkey" in the upcoming Dreyfoos School of The Arts production of "Shrek: The Musical." Having the opportunity of being involved in a lot of shows here at Dreyfoos, I can honestly say we've never done anything like this in my years here. It's a humongous show to carry, especially being one of the leads. Donkey is the most energetic, athletic and fun-filled character in the show. One would think it'd be easy to play him but it's actually pretty difficult. The hard part for me is staying present in every single moment as Donkey would. What's harder is not speaking but listening to other characters and responding just as energetic as you are when speaking.  (more...)
