I'm assuming Elphie3 has heard the cd.

I must say I love the songs, but they're quite a bit more 'poppy' than I'm used to (I usually listen to the '80s & '90s style musicals like Phantom, Les Mis, Martin Guerre etc) so would be interested to see how they work onstage.

The soundtrack does not do the show justice. Although most of the songs are included on the OBC recording, seeing it on stage just gives the music and lyrics so much more meaning and style.

Idina Menzel Rules! Kristen Chenoweth is amazing but on the OBC recording she sounds soo annoying sometimes!

Idina is GOD!!!!! Yes, the show is AMAZING. There's no word to describe it! Unlike Avenue Q!(Funny but NOTHING COMPARED TO WICKED!!!!)

Yes, the show is amazing!! Definitely one of the best shows I've ever seen. The recording is good, but seeing it all on stage is a totally different experience - already because there's so much more to the numbers than the music itself, a lot of dialogue, like in POPULAR, which is one of the funniest numbers I know. And not forgetting DEFYING GRAVITY, it's longer on stage (on cd, the dialogue has been cut)and simply astonishing!!! When Elphaba starts that final verse 'So if you care to find me...' what's happening on stage is brilliant!!!
