Good Triumphs Over All in WICKED. It's hard to know if in 1900 L. Frank Baum ever imagined there would be an afterlife to his children's book 'The Wizard of Oz,' but in 1939 MGM capitalized on book's wide appeal and their film version has became a staple in every child's movie experience. Flash forward 64 years to what can best be described as a prequel to Dorothy's famous journey, and you have the megamusical WICKED, which has become almost as popular as the MGM film. (more...)

by Matt Tamanini - Jan 16, 2017

For over 13 years, the musical WICKED has been a shining example of the biggest and most spectacular shows that Broadway has to offer. However, hiding behind the colorful costumes, the special effects, the familiar Ozian setting, and all of the other trappings of the modern day mega-musical is a much deeper and finely crafted show than it is often given credit for. The show's national tour, currently playing at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando through January 29th, thrives on the tried and true escapism that the show is known for, but with a truly remarkable actress leading the production, the show transcends its base entertainment value to deliver a nuanced, rewarding theatrical experience.
