What’s all this Wickedness About?
What’s got people going all wicked over Wicked? It’s the simple back-story to the classic Wizard of Oz, revolving around the lives of Elphaba, the nice girl turned Wicked by the criticisms of society and Glinda, the Good Witch. The unlikely friendship that develops between these two turns into a story of love, loss, envy and hatred.
Who is Wicked For?
It’s a classic for all age groups. It might seem like a childish idea, yes. But your kids will enjoy it because of the fairytale like aura of the entire production, and the characters they are all so familiar with. And as for you, you can enjoy it because of the deeper meaning hidden in themes explored in the musical; society’s disapproval of anyone that is different, there are two sides to every story, there is more to people than meets the eye, friendship, and bonds of trust, regrets, tragedies, injustice and dark secrets.
