Apparently I'm supposed to edit this to say that there are spoilers in this post. For those of you who have been living in a cave and don't know that the Wizard is Elphie's father....I haven't seen it, but I know...anyway, my question:

On the CD during "What is this Feeling" Elphaba writes a letter to her "dear father"...who is she writing to? The Wizard is her father and she doesn't find this out until the end. Is it a step father? ...

shes writing to the man she believed to be her father her entire life. think of the wizard more as a sperm donor.

but now I'm even more confused. What do you mean, sperm donor? They have sperm banks in Oz? How come it's not on the map...?

I don't agree. You really should go edit that or mark it with spoilers. It will take you two seconds and what hurt will it do to you?

Uhm, I -didn't- know, & I didn't want to hear any of the plot-twisters until i saw the show. So if there's any way that ppl can take that off of there, or change the subject to include *SPOILER*, I'd appreciate it so other ppl don't get disapointed like me. don't mean to sound rude, but it is disapointing.

always,

Geez you guys, have you listened to the cast recording at all?

CATSNYrevival... not in actual fact a sperm donor, the wizard is just not a father figure to Elphie.

Elphaba never found out. The Wizard didn't find out until after she "died."

See CATSNYrevival the big spoiler isn't what you thought it was. The Wizard being the father is just a small twist after the major twist. Which I for one am SOOO Happy I didn't know about until I saw the show! It was probably the happiest moment I have ever in a show. Even more then the first "Not so fast Amber" . When I saw Wicked my whole family went. My dad sat next to me anf my mom ended up sitting back a few rows and my dad still to this day (2 months latter) keeps telling my mom I wish you could have seen her face when it happened.
