"It just annoys me when some people who have never seen the show seem fit to judge it on just 2 songs."

When those two songs and the staging and acting are that bad I think its judgable. After all they went on the show and sang 2 songs to sell tickets, ie for people to judge that they were good and come see the show. Therefore I can judge it equally the other way..! Especially when the producers would have chosen the best songs to perform.

"I wanna say that DeathStar you are a little out of line. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinons but its not good to tell people not to go and see a show."

I kinda agree, but not much - I do feel in the swamp of love for ths show I have every right to be one of the lone voices here saying I really think this is poor. On the other hand it seems to work for some of you which is great. I just hope this isn't seen as "real" theatre. This is just Vegas...

I'm not going to give my usual deluge of opinions on AvQ, it's off the point.

Menzel's voice was a little hoarse but nothing more, until that last line, and - Oh God... I felt really sorry for her. She's so nice. I'm slightly ashamed to say that I went stagedooring for the first time at Wicked two weeks ago, and she is so nice!
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.
