Any of you guys seen it yet?

I saw it on Tues here in Chicago. It was great! worth the $80 per ticket.

It was such a funny + sweet show. Hey even Mr. Straight guy on my left cried! (To the girl that was with him: Im sorry to tell you, but your boyfriend is gay)

PS.Oh.. and allow me to flame-out for a second here.. the guy who plays "Boq" is such such a Hottie! I almost needed a cigarette after seeing +lisenting him sing!

I saw it last night here in Dallas. It was phenomenal! I would go see it on broadway in a heartbeat. Totally worth it!

I've seen it twice...going for my third time on "Wicked Day" - October 30.

Words can't explain how amazing this musical is.

And if you have the chance, see Shoshana Bean and Megan Hilty in it on Broadway before Shoshana's contract runs out January 8th, 2006.

How is Ana as Elphaba? I've heard a few recordings of her and she sounds pretty damn good to me.

I love Wicked! I got to see it with Shoshana Bean as Elphaba, and she was incredible! Btw, I heard that Kate Reinders, Galinda in Chicago, broke her foot during "popular," and will be out for several weeks.

Wicked is a good show and the tour, Chicago, and New York production employ several friends I have worked with in the past. I've seen the show performed on all three productions over twenty times. It's a "big, bold, bright" musical that is one of the shows that is perfect for people who do not visit the theater often. I do highly enjoy the show, but on a side note, the show is flawed and am grateful for the Bes Musical win going to Avenue Q, instead.

Nonetheless, enjoy.

Right now, the musical is being blessed by a great deal of talent in the role of Elphaba, more popularly known as the Wicked Witch of the West.


For those in New York -

Green Bean herself delivers a powerhouse performance. I highly recommend seeing her if you are in New York and have the chance. There is a chance she might be replaced by Eden Espinosa, who was Idina Menzel's stand - by from 2003 through 2004. Seeing Eden in the role full time would be spectacular.



For those in Chicago -

Ana Gasteyer from Saturday Night Live fame (and a few movies here and there) is utterly fantastic in this role. You would have never expected this type of performance to come from her unless you are truly familiar with her work. She is probably the best of the "Elphaba's" thus far. She has said that once she is finished with the show (tentatively January of next year) she will not be going to the Broadway production. So if you are an Ana Gasteyer fan, this is the time and place to see her do something really incredible.



For those in the hinterlands -

The Elphaba on tour is Stephanie J. Block. Stephanie Block is amazing and is one of the great Broadway talents of tomorrow. If you saw her in "The Boy from Oz" at the Imperial Theatre she played Liza Minelli. She is probably one of the nicest stage performers you could ever meet.


The role of Galinda/Glinda features some very good actresses in the part. No one has ever really -stood out- at least to me, anyway, since they are all trying to mimic the work of Kristen Chenoweth.
