LOVED IT!

What a fantastic show! I've been a lifelong Wizard of Oz fan, and this show was just incredible, the way you got to experience the other characters. The sets and costumes were top notch, the two ladies in the leads were incredible, especially Elphaba. It really was one of the best shows I've ever seen.

IF YOU ONLY SEE ONE MUSICAL, MAKE IT THIS ONE!

This musical is fast-paced, gorgeous, full of pathos and humor. Dialogue is superb, songs are breath-taking. Takes the simple old Wizard of Oz to a depth and breadth that I wouldn't have thought possible. It's the WofO for grown-ups. But not just grown-ups. Saw people of all ages in the theater, and everyone was enthralled. If you only see one musical in your lifetime, make it this one! A true gift for the senses.

UNBELIVABLE

We haeded for our seats at the very top in the cornor. When our group was asked if we wanted better seats. So we walked down to the second row. I was freaking out, by the first song I was crying. Wicked is my life, and watching it from the second row where I see the actor/actress face's was a fairtale. But at the end during curtain call I starte t cry again. And I realize that this is what I what to do. You see I been acting for 6 years but show made me see that I really what to act for the rest of my life. Thank you!!!

AWESOME SHOW, BUT WHAT TIME IS IT ???

Saw the show tonight for the first time and loved it. Elphaba was the bomb! I have to recommend this to all who haven't seen it before. You've got to see it once, though friends returned 8 or 9 times. Now, I have a question for the stage manager at the Aronoff Center. Forgive my absolute nurdity for even noticing, but the prominent clock on stage has written dead center SIDERAL TIME. Why the mispelling? It should be SIDEREAL TIME, though I guess most don't notice because most have no clue what SIDEREAL TIME is. Simply defined, it's a measure of time used by astronomers that is based on the stars, not the sun (as in our 'solar time'). It allows astronomers to better track movements in the sky.

IN CHICAGO

2008-Chicago-I was speechless and overwhelmed. The character development and how the performers portrayed them was phenomenal! Hoping to see in Omaha (my hometown) this Spring. I would recommend dining outside of the "old market". Parking is expensive and the Orpheum (while gorgeous and newly renovated) is downtown.

What we thought

ENCHANTING brilliant Timeless

The performance of 'Defying Gravity' at the end of Act I will give you chills.

Almost 13 years after it's debut, you still can't go wrong with Wicked, a perfect adventure for the whole family! Eugene Lee's scenic design coupled with Susan Hilferty's costume artistry will have you engrossed in their magic throughout the pro
