."..."Glinda’s comedy appears broader with each new visit... there seems to be a lot more of that atmospheric dry ice fog effect billowing across the stage... there’s no sign of aging. The show remains slick, the costumes and set design are as eye-catching as they ever were, and the cast with new faces are just as the audience wants to see. Wicked has become the epitome of a musical theatre crowd-pleaser...." -David Appleford, Valley Screen and Stage (click here to read the complete review)

"...WICKED is the epitome of a Broadway blockbuster...the whimsical characters played with flair and perfection by an outstanding cast, led by Erin Mackey as Glinda the Good Witch and Mariand Torres as Elfaba, the Wicked Witch of the West....There's so much juicy content in this work ~ particularly, the bolt-out-of-the blue reveal about Elfaba's parentage! ~ that no wonder audiences are inclined to revisit it again and again. So, revisit it, if you will. If you're a first-timer, bring friends. If you're a parent, bring the kids...." Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
